I could be mistaken, but the tabs appear to be moulded into the window. Not sure about GA ones. I still have a passenger window in the basement that I could take a picture of. Not sure if they are really replaceable, it's more like need a new window territory.

They're not molded, they're glued on. It's a common N body problem actually. I changed my clips on my old 03 Grand Am. It's not a fun job, you have to unbolt what's left of the clip from the window regulator

We're talking GP here.  Like I said, don't know about GA, and for the most part don't really care.


Posted Image BREAKDOWN ABILITIES: In car mode, his engine emits vibration that causes mechanical failures in other vehicles...can speed to 200 mph...uses concussion cannon in robot mode.

Ignore 90% of the comments here but be sure to listen to Breakdown.

If it took me 7-14 hours to change an alternator, I'd set the car on fire and roll it down a hill.

. . .then I'd set myself on fire.

When my window was acting like it was off track, the track and tabs were fine, but my window wasn't staying in the track itself. Some strong doublestick foam tape in the track and the pressure of keeping the window up have taken care of it for the past 2 years.


1994 Buick Regal GS coupe...no, it's not blue...ok, so maybe it's not really green either...1990 Volvo 740GL Wagon - the Cherylmobile1980 Monte Carlo Landau - ready to go...just needs time, money, timing set, and antique plates...and maybe a battery and a carb and...*sigh*

Of course but GM doesn't change build techniques depending on the car. They used the same window motor on all their regulators and those regulators were riveted to the door. Most GM regulators look like a scissor with 2 holes on top where that molding bolts on and most of them have a thick glue that keep em in the window. Now if I mentioned a Geo Prizm I could see why it would be irrelevant but like I said, GM isn't known to develop different ways to build a car depending on the line.
