Correct. I was having trouble identifying the part because none of the pics I found anywhere showed them attached to the assembly. Im going to keep them just in case.

My right side wonked out a year ago and the window came loose at the black clip. Mech used some kind of special glue to reattach.

If you end up replacing the regulator instead of repairing it, I recommend the jy. The aftermarket regulators are flimsy. I bought one for the front passenger before I read about repairing mine with new rollers. It was not strong enough to get he front of the window up until after the back of the window got to the top. The metal arm of the regulator would actually flex. The regulators from the dealer are much more expensive.

You can hold the two side by side and tell a significant difference in strength.

10-4 on the Jeep part. I will compare costs and if it's only $20 or so, I will go with the OEM. However, its starting to look like Chrysler didn't give much thought to the quality of their Jeep parts outside of engines, suspensions, trannys, etc...Which is good for us, but expensive when you start restoring older vehicles. Those components are top notch and Jeep is legendary for using strong parts in those areas but I am a little disappointed in everything else I am reading about on here. I guess that is why I loved my YJ, TJ, JK's so much; no fluff to fool around with, just a body sitting on top of a strong frame and suspension.

I agree. The metal regulator that comes with the Jeep seems like it could lift a tank. I don't know what they were thinking when they put plastic rollers on it. They dry up, get brittle, and start breaking apart. You would think that they could have made a design that would last longer than 15 years....
