I just replaced the whole regulator on my right rear for $60. I found the part number on realoem and bought the part on eBay.

i have just replaced the plastic clips on my 2004 545i (E60) using a kit bought from All German Auto. They make machined aluminum clips rather than the stock plastic ones. The kit costs $119 + $19 shipping which might sound steep but to replace the entire blind just because the clips broke will run you closer to $800! You'll need a small philips screwdriver, a pair of pliers, and a dremel type grinder to remove the existing rivets. Do this very carefully. Thats the hardest part. I'm a novice and did the whole job in less than an hour. The kit comes with instructions and new rivets
