#308 of 356 Window Regulator Issues
Apr 16, 2011 (9:21 pm)
I have a 2003 Jeep Liberty Sport. My left rear window regulator has broken 3 times in the last 3.5 years and my right rear window regulator has broken twice. The left one broke about a year-and-a-half ago, exceeding the warranty. My right r/w/r was repaired last june. Now the right side broke again. To add to this, my rear right side door is stuck, only opening about an inch before catching and not opening. Has anyone has issues with doors getting off track or any problems with the whole door, as opposed to just the amazingly faulty window regulator?

YES!!! My left rear window just spontaneously fell one day and now the door won't open either! It's unbelievable.

I too have a 2003. About 2 weeks ago, for the 4th time in as many years, my rear driver's side window dropped again. I agree that there should be some sort of recall. If it wasn't for the fact that I really don't want a car note, I would certainly trade in my Jeep. In the past I have been reimbursed, but it is such a pain wondering if and when it will happen again.

I had the same problem. First the driver side stopped working and the window fell (removed the door panel and wedged a board underneath to keep it up - redneck engineering) then the passenger side broke 2 months later. To make it worse, it happened when my boss was trying to roll the window up. We had to drive 2 hours on the interstate to a meeting with the window down. Needless to say I was embarrassed, but the cherry on top is that the door wouldn't open when we got to the meeting! My boss he'd to crawl out of the other side.
I finally decided to tear into it to see what the issue was and found the regulator cable had worked itself inside the door catch. This is safe.... God forbid someone is faced with the situation where they need to escape their vehicle and can't.... subversion, fire, etc.
I ran across a website that claims this inherit problem is due to a plastic piece the regulator cable attaches to on the window track. The plastic piece breaks, cable becomes loose, you know the rest. They offer a steel replacement for about $80 each side. Why doesn't Chrysler bite the bullet and do the same instead of throwing known failing partaking back into their product...

Very frustrating. When I had it repaired the last time, my guy told me the same thing. It may even be worth it to get the $80 part for when it happens again (notice I did not say IF it happens again - so sad).
Could you please provide me with the website and name of the part please so I can look into it?
Thanks so much.
