    The house was built in 1980 and has a set of Windows with Aluminum frames.
    At the bottom corner of each frame is a small plastic piece ( see picture) that seems to be used for sliding on the metal rail. I have a few that have one side broken with results that the windows do not slide very well and are tilted in the frame.

    Where can I get the replacement slides from or use some other substitute?

    The plastic piece is held into the frame with the second Philips Head screw on the RHS. and sits on the metal rail.

    Thanks for your time and advice. window_slide.jpg

    The part is about 1/2 inch long and is shown in the attached.images. The screw shown above is irrelevant.

    The three images show the size of the part and view from all sides.
