Window pop/gravel sound

Good day, everyone. I have a 2001 325i in which the left front window has a pop noise when going up or down, and a gravel noise when actuated, both issues being in different spots of window travel, but consistent either up or down. I have replaced the regulator, lubed/adjusted the guides, and checked motor splines. I suspect the red plastic tabs which secure the glass to the regulator are shifting during travel. Has anyone else experienced this? Alternative ideas? Are these tabs available independent of the glass, as they are not included with the regulator? Thanks in advance.

Thank you so very much. It's quite likely I would have never found these.
