I have this same problem and was able to buy just the plastic regulator clips at a local GM dealer, however when i put them back in and hooked everything back up, my window doesnt go all the way up. there is a small gap at the top. does anyone know if there is a way to adjust the metal track that the clips fit it??
I have had the same problem with my driver door. the white pieces actually connect thew metal bracket on the window to the metal pulley that moves the window up and down. the only way to fix this is to buy a new window regulator which shouldn't cost more than $55 online (www.am-autoparts.com). the windindow regulatort comes with these plastic pieces. This is how I solved my problem. Hope this helps!!!!!!:)

If you want to do this you need to remove the inner door panel( and maybe a weather barrier). be aware if you have any power options with switches on the door panel they must be disconnected before you attempt door panel removal.as soon as you remove the door panel(usually two or three screws and a dozen easily breakable plastic clips holding it in place) you will be able to see the window lift mechanism. if the window has not fallen completely off track you will be able to see how it is held by the "lift cradle" carefully without letting the window fall down into the door place the window back into its track"cradle" and loosely tighten the fasteners. and reconnect the window crank or window switch temporarily to slowly lift and lower the window while supporting it with your hand (to be sure it doesn't fall off its track while testing it) check if the window is tracking properly. if if seems to slide up and down appropriately and lands into the window seal appropriately then lower the window to a place where you can snug down the window retainers not too tight so as not to break the glass. and replace the door panel. after all switches or mechanisms are replaced test it again slowly to check for appropriate function and if you are satisfied pat yourself on the back for a job well done. i hope this helps
remove the door panel from the inside,it might be a little tricky,but you can put the window back on track with a little patience. Most have a clip that holds the window into place,that could be broken,or missing.If so then you should replace the clip as well or it will continue to fall off.
The Regulator will fix the problem. The tracks might also need a little adjustment.(loosen bolts move track then retighten) Try holding the window while you are rasing it you might be able to guide it up so that it will close a bit more.
there are clips holding the door panel around the edges. to remove the clips, use a small screwdriver to feel for them, then use another one to pull the panel on the other side. Pull outward from both sides of the clip until it comes loose. Do this repeatedly, and then loosen and remove the arm rest.
Pull the window up and have a helper hold it as you work it back into the track.
The window regulator is what causes the plastic clip to break. I had the same problem. I was able to find a new clip at advanve auto parts, and had to purchase a regulator which includes the motor from ebay. There were many diffrent options out there. Total cost was about $60.
