#253 of 356 New Part# coming out what Im told, hope I can file a claim
Aug 21, 2010 (7:00 am)
Everything I am hearing is leading to a recall, from online people been stating some dealers have already replaced their regulators even if not under warranty. In my case I have 2 already documented with Jeep replacement, and they did something another time right after fixing one that is not in the service system. Now I have another one failing, well actually failed 08/20/10 and I am being told by Jeep dealers I have to buy the window regulator combo.
I just got off the phone from OEMJEEPPARTS, they are an actual Jeep dealer in Texas, the guy said the 2007 part number is 4589266AB for the original regulator if can be found is about $33.99, but he said there is actually a NEW part number that is 4589266AC, that says in process in their Jeep parts system, he said its a Chrysler part not released yet and price listed is $72.64, so hopefully they are back stocking the parts then will release the recall. In my case I probably will have to buy the dealer older model version that requires the window replacement which now is listed at $275 approximately. This sucks, I been told if a recall is issues I could file a claim for a refund, who knows how long that would take they probably will give us some run around that it was before the recall and doesn't qualify.
Figured I would pass the information along.
2007 Liberty Sport
1st window Drivers Door September 2008
2nd issue was couple days after first, dealer fixed but didn't put in system evidently
3rd window Drivers Rear Door June 2009
4th Passenger Rear August 2010<-Not Under Warranty I have also complaied about the shifting of the automatic transmissions , and how it grabs funny. I moved to automatic from standard shift and the dearler said they could not find anything, I get the same issues as others the mysterous vibration shutter feeling. The dealer said, "Oh thats normal they ALL DO THAT" .... Now I see a TSB posted about a Torque Converter Shutter? I Hope my Tranny doesn't die....

Hope you are still around, I have the same issue on my 03 Liberty, the plastic case for the coil split open right below the top of the door. So far I tried clamping the two pieces together but that didnt work. Was wondering if you have had any luck with yours yet.

Sorry, I didn't fix my window yet. I found a way to stop the window to fall and I am not using the window at all...
Some people give me this links that may be helpful:

Thanks for the quick response. I'll check those out and let you know if I find a simple fix.
I do think having the coil come out of the top of the door is a hazard as someone could get their fingers in the loop when it is being drawn back into the door on a window up activation. Thanks again

I live in NEW YORK I have an 06 liberty and the left rear pass side window crapped out on me twice, the dealership say's it could cost around 4- 500 to fix it again, I got it back on the last time but enough is enough

My repair came to $415. Chrysler reimbursed me half ! This too was the second time for me. The first time 2 yrs ago - all was reimbursed. It happens at the most inopportune time. I don't even use that window anymore - driver's side rear.

Last Saturday, my drivers window crapped out. This.morning, as I went to leave for the dealership, I rolled down my passenger side window and POP it went! Two different windows in the space of 48 hours. Dealer says the fix includes replacing the glass & I will have to pay a deductible, but he's looking to get some relief from Jeep HQ. I will report what happens when I get the results.

I had both driver's side regualtors & windows replaced while my 2007 Liberty was under original 3/36,000 warranty. Yesterday,my rear passenger window popped. I took it to dealer & they said car is no longer under original warranty. I said thats ok becuase I have extended warranty. Well, you guessed it, this particular problem is not covered under Chrysler's extended warranty. There is only 34k miles on the car but the 3 years are up. Dealer wanted $605 to repair. I called Chrysler & opened a case yesterday. Today they called me back & said that they will pay for repair as a courtesy! When is the damn recall coming?

In most cases the failure is due to a broken plastic bracket that attaches the window to the regulator wire coil. The factory fix is costly and doesn't replace the plastic bracket. The permanent fix is to replace that bracket with a metal one for about $90 and ca. 1 hrs labor per window. The brackets and full instructions can be obtained from Steiger Performance; just Google them. Follow the instructions carefully especially for 05/06 KJs the angle of the ball that engages the new bracket (MUST be straight and the retaining clip must be completely behind the ball on both sides). Removal of the fuzz is easy with a drill driven wire wheel although some say a light application of a cigarete lighter or propane tourch will do (I did not they the latter).
