drivers side window..mechanism..raises and lowers it (power window)

Resolved Question:

The drivers side window has become unattached to the mechanism that raises and lowers it (power window), there were 4 pieces of white plastic in the
bottom of the window well. Where can I get the plastic replacement parts and what do they attach to besides the metal piece at the bottom of both ends of the glass.
