window regulator bowed

my left rear regulator is bowed on my 81 300d.

the window still works, it skips gears and goes up and down slowly.

is it possible to bend it back in shape? a new one is 130, i find that kind of pricy.

I will check a junk yard in the am, however i know there is only 1 other 123 there and my chances of finding it are slim.

You probably need to replace the glides.
I don't know if that's the correct term but it's the plastic pieces that glide on the rails. they tend to wear down. put some new ones on and grease them up.
I would think you could bend it back, I would at least try.
