What is this? Pic attached.

This was laying inside the bottom of my passenger side front door panel. I can't seem to find anything like it in the Jeep door/window diagrams.

That looks like the bar that goes along the bottom of the glass that the window regulator pushes up on to close the window.

Damn good chance at one point your Jeep had a broken window (seen any popcorn glass in the bottom of the door?) and when they changed the glass out they just dropped the old one in the bottom of the door.

Well actually the current window is loose and needs tape to hold it up, so I am guessing this is the OEM one. There are a couple (broken) white rings inside the channel that I am assuming held the channel to the regulator? I am just annoyed that I can't find a diagram anywhere showing this part. I understand I need to purchase the FSM, and I will eventually, but I would like to get this fixed sooner rather than later.

Looking at the parts list , it appears to be part of the regulator assembly , few individual parts available . Best option would be to hit up a u-pull / scrapyard .

PM coming for the parts list and that other thing you wanted for free

Does your regulator and motor still work?

If so, you can use shower door rollers to replace the White rings that you found in the channel. You will have to remove your regulator and drill out the pins that the rollers attached to on the ends of the regulator. The shower door rollers need to be sanded down to the right size to fit in the channel. Just takes a few minutes each by hand.

The jy wanted $40 for a regulator, but I used a $5 pack of rollers and fixed mine. Worked fine for over a year now.

Freaking awesome, I will look into it Kingr. Only my driver's side window works right now. None of the other switches work. Thinking its in the driver's side cancel button. Going to check the wires under the door grommet for fraying or stretching but I wanted to get these windows secured first. I will verify the motor works before trying the shower door roller trick.

Much appreciation for the quick replies guys

Hadn't dawned on me that in this pic for the assembly my part is actually right there. I must have looked at over 100 Google images of this assembly and didn't recognize it because none of them show the black window brackets installed like on mine. Assuming I need reuse those if I purchase the entire assembly?

Im sure you already know its the piece that holds the window to the regulator, honestly i would just replace it whats the mileage on your jeep and just think of how many times that window went up and down im sure its worn out if the window part already broke off whats next lol.

yes, the black clips are what hold the glass to the regulator so you'd basically take them off your old bar and reuse them on the new regulator along with the motor from your old assembly

The black clips are attached to the channel with nuts. Currently, my window is kind of just hanging up by the weather seal pressure and the actuator is locked in the up position.

Yea i can see that Im saying that because I was recently swapping my regulators and window motors on the drivers side and both my drivers side windows had the black strips attached to the windows and they attached to the regulators with 2 nuts on either end.
