2003 GL Window issue

Passenger side window came off the track & wouldn't go up without manual help. It stays up for a little while but doesn't stay up. If the switch to lower the window is ever pushed by mistake, the window comes off track again & falls at an angle into the door. Took to garage & they said the glass needs to be re-attached to one of the clips (both clips are intact) with some glue. For some reason I'm not sure I understand, the mechanic says he if he glues it back together then it will break the glass when it dries. He's tried it quite a few times & it always causes the window to break apparently, so wants to charge for a new window for $250.

Does anyone have experience with this or similar issue and can recommend if I can try and glue this with some type of glue myself?

Negotiated with the mechanic to try his glue on the existing window with the understanding that it may break and need to be replaced. He's AAA-rated and has been very trustworthy and agreed to give it a try. It's now 1 week & all seems well. We'll see if it holds out for over the 3-month period as you guys have suggested.
