I was prepping my car for winter the other day, which involves siliconing the window runners. When I put the window up and down there was a clunk and something fell into the door. Window still appears fine.

Tonight I got the door card off (5 minutes) and fished out this object, or part of an object.

What is it and should I care?

I cannot identify it definitely but it could be part of the plastic guide which runs up and down the steel channel section on the window regulator. I guess its less than 20mm or 3/4" in size?

I think if it all still works there is probably enough guide area left to work OK.

Aha, thanks. In part terms, is that going to be part of the regulator or separately available? If the former, I won't do anything about it for now until it actually goes wrong. Trying to fit anything in situ doesn't look like fun anyway.

Part of the wondow regulator. I don't forsee you being able to buy one separately and in any case assembling it would not I think be easy if the cable needs repositioning. You would need to get the whole regulator out anyway.

If it still works OK it could last a long time without bothering about it!
