The link in Step 5 for the slider replacement guide is incorrect. It points to a Powerbook HD replacement guide. TG.

What if there's no reason other than one side of the slider came off?

What about if the zipper zips up but the teeth do not keep closed. I.e. zip up the jacket, part of the teeth stay interlocked but from one point on the teeth become undone and do not lock.

I have the same problem as Juan Umana: one tooth at the bottom (beginning) of the zipper is broken off, so the teeth won’t mesh properly and the zipper teeth stay apart. Ideas welcome.
