I have a 1978 924 with manual windows. The drivers side was missing when I bought it. I came across a pair of nice 944 windows for a decent price but the bracket is not compatible.

Does anyone know how to adapt an auto window to a manual, or should I just keep searching for a manual window with bracket?

Thanks

I ran into this while swapping from power to manual windows. I ended up pressing out the ball end that goes into the bracket on the manual arm and welding in the ball I pressed out of a power arm.

The pads that press onto the balls are a common wear item, like this https://rennbay.com/944-Window-Regulator-Roller-Repair-Kit.html

Ok, That makes sense> I'll give it a shot. Thanks!
