I am looking for the metal rails that are bonded to the bottom of the front door window glass on most 80's through 1995 G-vans WITH POWER WINDOWS. The rails from a crank window version will not work as the roller channel stops short of the end of the window. I believe that on the power window vans the roller channel extends all the way to the end of the window which is what I need. See pictures if that doesn't make sense.

I would take the complete glass if it includes this piece, but I imagine shipping would be kind of a nightmare. Would rather buy rails by themselves.

I'm in 46506 Northern IN

Cliffnotes: Need metal rails from bottom of glass as seen in the picture, however I need them from a power window van as (I believe) the channel extends all the way to the end of the glass.

Had the same problem on the drivers side of my 93 when I got it four years ago. I ended up fabricating the rusted section needed as I recall, and we reused the old roller section of it. My buddies a good welder and he welded it to the roller rail for me. I dread the day when the passenger side lets loose, and I know it will one day. I feel for ya brotha, thats one PITA job to do. Getting in there and working with that power window regulator is not for the faint hearted, its a real piece a work. No room and ya cant see squat once ya get your hands inside there. Only advice I can give ya is clean that glass damn good with a razor blade first, then wipe it down with solvent, reclean and wipe with alcohol and etch it along the edge ya glue before bonding the glass back on it. I forget what I used but it was a two part epoxy as I recall and made for it. Mighta been a Permatex product. I taped the glass off and painted it good for protection before I assembled it. Been four years and I use it daily. So far so good. I put a new motor in when I had it apart although it didnt really need it, for the twenty fivebucks or so that it cost, it was a good move I think. Once installed I lubed it up real good everywhere afterwords. If ya find a source, please share it with us. Id love to have a source besides digging through a boneyard. Everyone I found used in MI had just as bad a problem ready to develope so I never even bothered to try a used one with glass attached.
