Default Window Regulator Clps

My front windows do not roll up. The green plastic clips are broken on the regulator cable. Question, can I replace just the clips or do I need to replace the regulator?
Looks like I will have to buy the whole regulator just to get the clips, cant find clips anywhere. Would be much easier just to take new clips off new regulator and install on old regulator. Do I need to lubricate guide that clips slide on?
Any help would be appreciatted.

You need the regulator, the clips are not avaliable separately. They have also changed the design somewhat, so the clips do not interchange.

Default DYI repair kit

I had a similar problem with the driver's side back door window regulator. After following a couple of threads i found a post that described the procedure to get to the regulator. After close inspection i found that the plastic pulley white had broken in half. Then seaching on ebay I found a vendor in Turkey that offers the DYI repair kit at a very affordable price:

And you fixed your door with the pully from the kit?

you need to replace not just the clips but also the window regulator.. have you tried to look at ebay for your window regulator clips?

you will need the whole regulator and they are pretty costly. ive done my driver door twice as well as my pasenger side twice. they should make a rebuild kit for these faulty regulators!
its not a fun job either.. have to take the whole door apart and drill the rivets out and then re rivet it so it stays in place. i think i used 3/8" rivets if i remember correctly. also lubing the regulator in the vital spots (plastic pieces where you said its broken) will increase the life of the regulator. good luck
