Fixed with screws - but, .... - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I opened up the inner door panel and found what I expected: the two welds holding the guide track of the window regulator to the bottom mount were torn out. I drilled a couple of 9/16" holes in both pieces where the welds were and used a couple of 6-32 screws and locking nuts to hold things together (screw heads inside the U-channel). As I thought, the heads of the screws intruded too far into the U-channel, so I filed them down quite a bit, and now the metal/plastic slider makes a slight clunk as it passes over the screws near the bottom of travel. We'll see how long this repair holds up.
