Does anyone know ???

I made a bonehead mistake today and drop my power window regulator. The little black wheel that fits into the window slot broke off. Does anybody know if this is part can be purchased from one of the vendors or am I SOL? Or will I have to buy a whole new regulator? I will attach a picture in reference to the little black wheel at the very tip of the arm.

If you are talking about the window guide Roller(Wheel) That fits in the track and guides the window as it raises and lowers,Summitt Racing shows them in the catalogue. Larry

This is the roller I was talking about, and thanks for answering my question. Hopefully we are talking about the same roller.

Rest easy. These wheels are called "window rollers" and are easy to find. But you have to get the right size for your car since GM made a few different sizes and styles.

The replacement process is to drill out the existing rivet and pound a new one in place. Well, with the new roller on it. There are a few YouTube videos on this. Not hard, just time consuming since you have to remove the door panel,tar paper, regulator and glass to get at it. Then have more time to get it all back in place.

While you're in there, consider cleaning and greasing your window tracks and a door locks. And maybe vacuum any accumulated cr*p from the bottom of the door or quarter.
