    Nah my problem isnt the spring. Spring works great. The plastic arms that are attached to the track snapped. I guess I'll just remove it and get an aftermarket like you suggested.

    I'm in the same boat but I didn't remove the piece cuz I'm pretty sure it keeps tension on the glass to keep it sealed. I just go ahead and hold it down with my finger as it shuts.

    I hate not using mine. So I just do 'the finger holding it down till the glass hits it' trick. That name is trademarked, btw.

    I know this is an old string but I had the same issue with my 2006 Avalanche...both broke out of the blue. What I did was drill the rivet out, took some shrink wrap and connected the two parts together...I did not glue them due to in needs the flexibility. I then riveted back in, put some lubricant on top of the shrink wrap so the frame will easily slide across it...viola...it works.

    @ Gary > Verified! I just finished my wife's Tahoe. Same problem... good luck finding those plastic parts online. Heat shrink tubing, 1 each pop rivet & some DC4 fixed it right up! Thanks for the words!!
