Someone may have leaned on the window and bent the regulator or it's mount. Take the door card off and see if the mounts could be realigned with washers or a bit of judicial man handling! The guide will be on the drivers side to, You'll have to see how they fix to the car(clip in, screw in, or part of the runner seal). Is the bottom clamp still holding the glass straight? The guide is usually required to ensure the glass stays in the runners when the windows shut whilst at speed, the air pressure will pull on the glass(a problem rain guards make worse!) Investigate and recify, I haven't had a broken window guide to deal with before.
