#213 of 356 Do a search online

There are ways to fix this yourself, even with minimal experience.
Do a search online for replacement kits and "how to" guides (they are included)...a little bit of research on your part will pay off.
I have a 2007 Liberty Sport and I'm going in for my servicing (just hit 63K miles) and my driver's side window is dragging when raising it. Just another window issue (I've had the rear drivers window also fail at around 16K miles).
Anyone have issues with their air conditioning? Mine sucks. I've never had a good "cool" from it.
My wife has a 2008 Jeep Patriot and her A/C works great.

You know, it is really sad that people would HAVE to "fix it themselves". The problem is that it isn't considered a "safety" issue so they can't be forced to do a recall. And it won't be, until some kid falls out of a window, or some woman is attacked returning to her car at night b/c the window fell down on her way to work and someone just hopped in the car and waited....and even then, the media would have to publicize the story and cause a lot of negative publicity for Chrysler before they would do anything. Anyone know any reporters out there?
As far as the A/C, no, I've never had a problem with mine. And I live in Denver, where we are a mile closer to the sun, and my liberty is dark green, so I do use it in the summer!
#215 of 356 Got my window fixed....
Jun 17, 2010 (4:39 pm)
I just had my window fixed today- no charge. I called Chrysler and made a formal "complaint" about the window issue. I got a case number assigned and the rep told me someone would call me back within one business day. Someone called the next day and told me that Chrysler has acknowledged that the regulator is defective and that she would contact the dealer where I was having it fixed and there would be no charge. She also said that if it happens to any of the other windows in the future that I should call Chrysler to report it and they will pay for the repair. I had the regulator and the glass replaced. I was happy that both Chrysler and the dealer did not give me a hassle- I was prepared for a fight but was pleasantly surprised when I didn't get any push back. The service rep at the dealer said there was no recall "yet". I did stress to the person at Chrysler that I felt that this was a serious safety issue-especially since I have two young children in the back seat and driving around with no window was dangerous. I really hope there is a recall soon before anyone gets hurt. I also hope this is the last time I go out to my car and find there is no window! Good luck to everyone and make sure you call Chrysler when you have a window problem so they can have a record of it and arrange to pay for the repair. If you have already paid for a repair call them so you can get reimbursed.

I'm a new forum member and am replying to an old but worthy post. For all you about to be at the end of your warranty... THIS POST IS FOR YOU. My husband has a nack for fixing mechanical car problems. He's fixed 5 power windows in the past year (3 on a '04 F150 and 1 on a '83 Benzo and 1 on a friends Jeep Liberty). Jeep Liberty has an ity bity part on the power window made of plastic. When the dealer 'fixes' your window, they replace it with the same defective plastic part. There is a company that makes a replacement part for $100 but you need to find someone to install it. Most places will charge you $200 for labor. The good news is... once you install the METAL REPLACEMENT part, your window will most likely stop breaking. Feel free to contact me for any other info... I'm sure I can ask my hubby for the answer .
P.S. we are in Vegas so that plastic part is notorious for breaking!

You need to suck it up. I have had all 4 windows replaced in my 2006 Liberty. Just accept the fact that NO CORPORATION takes responsibility. As for American Auto makers not giving a damn about quality anymore I'm not sure if you have heard of them but there's this company TOYOTA that's been in the news and has had some major issues.
#219 of 356 Window regulator - third time
Jun 21, 2010 (8:03 am)
Thank you for this blog. I now do not feel alone. I own a 2003 Jeep Liberty with 53,000+ miles. The window regulator issue - same window - rear driver's side - has happened to me twice before. Last year I finally contacted Chrysler and after a while - was reimbursed. Well lo and behold, while attending my nephew's graduation out of state this past Thursday, it happened again. Well fortunately I had a GPS to locate the closest Jeep service center who could lock it up overnight and repair it on Friday - to the tune of $415 !! Fortunately I found some posts out here from others with similar problems. I contacted Chrysler a few minutes ago, was given a case number and a promise of a return call by 8pm tomorrow night. So hopefully I will be reimbursed. However, this really does not fix the problem. At this point, I am tempted to post a note on my window to make sure that anyone in the back seat never even THINKS about lowering that window. So frustrating.

Im on my 8th repair. So crazy. Today the man said the next time I would have to pay a co/pay cause it would go on my extended warranty. I think that this should just be covered by chrystler cause they keep fixing it with a faulty part.Im calling them to see what they say. Im never ever going to buy a jeep again.

If it wasn't for a few minor items, I'd say this Jeep Liberty (2007 Sport) has been one of the best vehicles I've ever owned and I enjoy it very much.
That being said, yes...windows...big problem. Fabric seats stain with water drops, but I've been able to clean them easily enough with a over-the-counter fabric cleaner. Oh...and the A/C is not the coldest...but other than that...I love my little Liberty.
As a fix to end the frustration, do a search online for a replacement kit. There is a guy online who builds metal replacement kits and has good instructions for you to do it yourself. Before you ask, I can't give out the website...sorry...I got told off for giving out the website before. Just do a little search/investigative work and you'll find it.
Even if you don't have the mechanical ability, this is an easy fix...have a friend do it or hire a local garage to take care of your problem window.
