So I was hearing a rattle in my drivers door. I took the panel off and saw the mounting stud for the window track was broke. It was larger on one side to thread into the track, and the other side was smaller to fit in the door and secured with a nut.
I went to the parts dealer, ordered a new piece after looking at the door illustration on the fordparts website, and the next day they gave me the one on the top in the photo below. This is clearly not the same piece. My first problem is, it is shorter and smaller than the original so that means when I put it through, it won't thread it's way through the regulator and wind up being butted against the door (originally there was space in between it and the door). Is this safe for the window? Has anyone else had this problem?
I just took a look at my door and I found that the new bolt they gave me is already in my door towards the middle (part# 231A06), so this must not be correct. Does anyone know what this 2-stage looking stud is on the bottom?? I cant find it!

I couldn't find it on any of the parts diagrams either. I see that the regulators are held on with nuts; maybe that stud is part of the regulator assembly?
I looked in there like 4 times and then i started thinking that maybe its listed under the Body>Doors section? Thats BS if i have to buy a new track all for a $4 part. I think im going to make a trip to Home Depot and just find the size that fits the threading in the track and a slightly bigger nut, but then id have to widen the opening for it in the door like 1mm with a Dremel. Would that be a problem?
