RUN don't walk as far from the dealer as you possibly can except to purchase your new window and regulator. I just picked up my window and regulator at the dealer except this time it came with a sticker for 58cents to put on the window telling anyone who was repairing the door that the window was not the 2006 window and it refered them to a Mopar bulletin # 68058661AA. Sooooo the guys at the parts counter looked up the bulletin and printed out 3 pages for me. I says exactly what is happening to our windows, what to expect and what models are affected. Looks like 2006 and 2007 Liberty and Cherokee(international markets) are the only ones.
Anyone who would like a copy of this Service bulletin dated April 15,2009 can email me at edlankfordgmail.com, give me your fax number and I will fax it to you right away. This is hard core evidence that they know they have had a problem all along. The guys at the parts counter at Moss in San Bernadino said they were wondering why they were selling so many windows and regulators....Duh !!
Took the window and regulator to my local safelite and for $65 they did a beautiful job in less than 30 minutes and showed me why the old one broke. Cheap plastic part. So I saved about $150 because the dealer charges $200 to install the window and regulator.. I tried every parts place including NAPA to get after market windows and regulators but no one makes them. I hope some consumer interest group or government agency catches on to this problem and one day we can all present our receipts and get refunds. This has really been a costly problem for me and I am sure everyone else.
At least one thing you can be sure of, Chrysler/Jeep will never see me, my family or anyone I can convince in their showrooms and we have a lot of new cars in our futures. Ed Lankford edlankfordgmail.com

Here's a quick fix if you want the window locked in the up position:
(1) Push the window into the up position.
(2) Get a heavy duty wire tie, put it through the hole where the window rail mounts to the top of the door.
(3) Loop the wire tie under the cheap (and broken) plastic guide under the window, and pull tight.
(4) Attach more wire-ties until you feel confident that they won't break loose.
(5) Put the door back together.
After reading your post I decided that I didn't really need to open that window anymore. We've only used that window about 20 times since we bought the car back in 2006, so it wasn't really an issue of the thing wearing out, it was designed that way. I found a quarter inch piece of plastic that had broken off inside the door, so it must have been a pretty cheap design.

I am currently using Grey Duck Tape on the two rear windows of my soon to be traded in 2003 Jeep Liberty and I tell everyone who passes by my vehicle about the cruddy design of the widow clips. So far about 10 people said that they thought about buying a Liberty, but did not want me to say I told you so if the widows fell. I would have them fixed but this is the 3rd time each of them have fallen. The 1st time each of them fell, it was before the extended warranty ran out so I had them fixed. The 2nd time was less than 6 months after each had been fixed and I had to pay $130.00 both times to have them fixed, because the dealership that I purchased them from in Thibodaux, Louisiana said that the replacement motor did not have a warranty. This time passenger rear window fell and I used clear Duck Packing Tape at first to fix it and used my vehicle to go into New Orleans, etc. a week later my 2nd window fell and with the wet cold and wet humid weather the clear tape was not holding anymore so I had to turn to the Grey Duck Tape and I can not go into New Orleans with both my rear windows taped up with Grey Duck Tape, so the Jeep has to go...as my 4 year old niece and 8 year old newphew would say............
#157 of 356 2006 Liberty rear window "fix".

After duct tape (or transparent packing tape), this is probably the cheapest fix for these windows. You take out the two screws that hold the inside of the door on, pop the inside of the door off with a putty knife, remove the speaker and the vapor barrier, and then put on the wire tie. I'm not really describing this well, and it's better that you do a search to get better instructions on this. But if you've muddled through it once, you can probably do it in well under an hour. Which is most likely what I'll be doing when my other rear window fails!

I would just like to say that I called the Chrysler toll free number and spoke with a representitive. I made it VERY clear that I was not happy paying 30,000 dollars for a car to have the windows be like this. She was rude and I asked to speak with a supervisor and was told he would call me. Well the rep called me back the next and did a conference call with where I get my car fixed and they said if its a manufacturer problem they will fix it for free, if I pay a $50 deductible. So I brought it in and EVERYTHING including the windows themselves had to be replaced and Chrysler footed the bill. It doesnt hurt to call. It could have cost me over $800, but didnt. I also told the place where it was getting fixed not to put that junky plastic parts back in it and they said, they were upgrading it to a better system. I hope they stay working and not falling. Good luck all!!!
#159 of 356 Got mine fixed for free

bought my daughter's 2006 used but we had one replaced this summer under warranty. Passenger window broke over the weekend. She took it in was going to cost $487. I printed out some pages from this website and the website from the guy who has made to part to fix this problem and went to the dealership. They agreed to fix at no cost. Wouldn't touch the other two windows that haven't broke yet. Guess I will have to go back at least two more times.
#160 of 356 Where do we start to force a recall
Jan 19, 2010 (3:43 pm)
Anybody got any good ideas of who we contact to start a recall of the 2006>>2007 Jeep Liberty with bad windows. This is costing us all a lot of money.
Also, Don't forget to email me for a copy of the MoPar Bulletin detailing the window/regulator problem. They know there is a Major problem.

Please go to :
Click on Safety Complaints
Click on Search Complaints
Fill in your type of vehicle, there are about 22 complaints registered concerning the Windows and regulators of jeep libertys. Please detail your complaint. If enough of us do this then there is hope that someone will investigate MoPar and why they are not issuing a recall.

There's a snipping tool out there (default proggy in Win 7 for example) that will let you copy anything to the clipboard and save it as a jpg.
You may be able to open the .pdf on your screen and then hit the PrintScreen and paste it into Paint and save it.
Or just email it to me and I'll try to save it and email it back to you. Click on my name for the email address.
