To try and save the old washers, is a waste of time.
Since the arms will be removed, a very nice way to fix the issue, takes a little time, but is a "first class" fix.
Thread the window end of the window lift arm, and then install a "[B]nylon insert nut"[B/] on it to hold the lift arm into the window bracket.
Granted, cotter pins work, but they don't to much for looks, especially when they are in plain sight.
