    I am looking for the little u shaped bracket that glues to the slider on the drivers side. The only thing I have been able to find is the complete window with the piece glued on for $150. The dealer has only the latch not the bracket. So if anyone has any ideas or a solution to this problem please let me know. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I'd start checking junkyards. I'll dig through all my junk tomorrow and see if I have one. I always save little crap like that when I get broken ones in cause you normally can't buy that stuff new.

    If you still have the passenger side bracket why not just make another one like it for the driver side? I think it is only a piece of sheet metal and nothing too hard to make.

    Since I haven't heard back from you I am figuring that you don't have that clip in you spare parts. So I am going to contact a friend who has sharp drills and a complete tap set and try to fabricate one. Thanks anyway. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
