Window guide repair question

My driver's door window became difficult to roll up so I popped the door cards off to inspect. The plastic guide that fits in the rail at the back of the glass had fallen off and was laying in the bottom of the track. I took the pass side off to compare and it had done the same thing. The piece is a few inches long, black in color and U-shaped to accommodate the glass. It is felt lined where the glass touches. I found a part number and will see if CC carries them.
The PN for the driver's side is: 111 725 5132 ... and has these numbers below those: 698 333

Can anyone tell me if the guide is supposed to remain attached to the glass and slide up and down in the rail or does the slide remain attached to the rail at the top and the glass slides through it? How is it held in place, I couldn't find evidence of broken clips anywhere.

I dont have any experience about your w111, but l have some knowledge about the w115. And what you describe is similar to what these cars are fitted with. The steel part around the bottom of the glass contains a plastic part inside to fit the window and the steel part is connected at the outside with two bolts through the window mechanism wich clamps everything together.
Maybe this helps you

Hi, thank you but the part I am referring to actually sits at the back edge of the glass, not the bottom. It lays vertically and slides or mounts somehow inside the metal rail that is fixed to the inside of the door at the rear of the glass. I actually just found this diagram, it looks like I need part #55, and part #55a seems to be the felt that lines the piece. Maybe I am missing a clip, part #57?

Hmm, hard to say, so many small pieces inside those windows. So you think you need those small clips, if l am seeing it correctly? I am not shure what those are for, maybe just a stopper or a holder for the window gasket that goes inside the rail?
Looks like l am not much of help, but if you can get everything back together try to grease all moving parts in the window mechanism, and also the gasket inside the rail.
Should make the window go smoother.

55 is a metal rail that is part of the door , 55a is a piece of chanel [ rubber / fabric ] , that is glued to 55 .the reason why windows become hard to move , is the lack of lube [ grease and spray ] of the moving parts , including gears .
