PGT Window Upper Sash Guide

A home owner from Coral Springs, Florida says:
Hello, looking for upper sash guides for PGT windows. The windows are about 23 years old, not sure what series they are. I hope the pictures help. I can't find these anywhere.
Regards,
Mike

Thank you for posting. Could you please confirm your dimensions? You have the top labelled as 7/16", but the slimmer bottom as 5/8", which is much larger. Did you mean 7/8" in the first instance? If so, see our 18-166 and let me know if you think this could be a good match.
A home owner from Coral Springs, Florida says:
Hi Tom. I'm sorry, you're right. The top measures 15/16" not 7/16". Not sure if the 18-166 would work.

The dimensions of the 18-166 match every measurement you show. Looking at the other dimensions we have listed for the 18-166, how does it differ?
A home owner from Coral Springs, Florida says:
Thanks, Ken, you've been a great help. I'm going to take some more measurements and get back with you.
A home owner from Coral Springs, Florida says:
Hi, Tom, I was able to take some more detailed measurements. let me know if you think this will work.
Thanks, again.

Thank you for the additional information. Based on this detailed photo, I think our 18-009 seems to be a better fit. The critical measurements are the width (5/8"), the hole placement (both have top hole) and the thickness; yours is 9/16" and ours is 19/32".
