#1 of 2 Window clips for '05 Relay
Feb 27, 2011 (5:40 pm)
So, my our drivers side window stopped working a couple of weeks ago - first it wouldn't go down all the way, then it wouldn't go up... Long story short, it was shot.
I brought it to the dealer, and they can fix it - for $800 for the part! They showed me how to get the window back up, so we have been living without a drivers side window and ultimately had to employ duct tape to keep the window up - and that's starting to give up the ghost.
Upon a recommendation from a family member, I contacted a window guy, who said that we probably just needed a new regulator. $30 on the internet later, and we have the part - and it's not the right bit. The window guy took the door apart, and discovered that everything is ok, except the "clip" that holds the window onto the rail is broken - so the rail can freely move, but the window doesn't move with it, which causes it to get all diagonal and messed up.
The question: where do I find the clip? I don't want to spend $800 for the part from Saturn, but I can't seem to find anything. I have the broken parts here and can take photos if that will help. I'm thinking I might need to find a 2005 Relay at a recycler to donate the clips, but I don't know how likely it will be to find a 2005 there...
I branched out into the "Uplander/Montana/Terraza" part searches since they're all basically the same cars, but nothing.
Please, can anyone point me in the right direction?
