#15 of 50 Windows close hard?
Aug 14, 2008 (7:05 pm)
I have noticed for a while that when I close my power windows on my 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo (65th edition) that they make a very loud noise, as if the window is trying to close farther than the door will allow. Does this behavior precede the problems that people have had with the window regulators? If not, does anyone know what the problem is? It doesn't seem right to me that the windows are so loud when they close, and I am concerned that the windows and/or regulator will get damaged. thanks.

In your search engine, type josh-n-lisa.com. Josh explains with pictures exactly how to change the regulator. It just takes a little time but will save you big bucks. Good luck...

GOOD NEWS...the window regulator is easy to fix!
Yes, I too had both front door window regulators fail...I was extremely frustrated with quotes over $400 each. DO NOT PAY THAT. I purchased this Jeep new and absolutely love the vehicle (No I don't work for Chrysler, or sell Jeeps). Over 130,000 miles and still running great. (other then the window regs).
Search the internet for aftermarket parts. You can get robust reverse engineered regulators for no more than $50.
The fix is easy even if you aren't into fixing cars. (no I'm not an engineer or mechanic) Total repair if you have a phillips screwdriver, torx bits, and metric socket wrench set
Step 1: 2 standard screws and 1 torx screw secure the door panel trim to the steel door. Remove those first. (one is behind a plastic cap up by the tailfin by the rearview mirror)
Step 2: Plastic clips secure the perimeter of the door panel trim to the steel door. Pull the door panel from the steel door...most clips will remain intact. If they break they can be found at all major hardware stores for pennies.
Step 3: Remove the two steel latch and lock bars from the handle mechanism. The clip pivots at the attachment on the handle. Once the clips are rotated away from the doorpanel, pull the steel bars up. They will simply pop out.
Step 4: Disconnect the upper speaker and disconnect the main door switch wire harnesses.
Step 5: Remove the speaker - remove 4 screws and unplug wire harness.
Step 6: Pull vinly barrier from steel door. Tacky glue will not harden.
Step 7: Remove the 7 screws securing window regulator to steel door with socket wrench/screwdriver.
Step 8: Detatch acutual window from window regulator track by pulling the brass color U-clips out of the bracket. The window will detatch. Careful!!! The window is now free to float..nothing is holding it up.
Step 9: Remove the whole window regulator and track through the opening in the sheet steel.
Reverse the steps to re-install your new part.

#19 of 50 2003 GC power windows not working
Dec 09, 2008 (6:56 pm)
I own a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee and recently my power windows, power locks, and interior dome light have stopped working for the most part.
Driver Door: none of the window controls will work; power mirrors work; power locks only control driver door
Passenger Front: power window does not work; power lock will control all doors except driver
Dome light: will come on if I do it manually, does not respond to door being open
I have looked at most of the fuses, but do not see one labeled windows and locks. Is this my problem or is there another issue? Thanks in advance

check the wires that go from front of door to body (sounds as if you have broken wire in the wires where they bend when ever you open the door)

#22 of 50 Window Regulator
Jul 11, 2009 (6:25 pm)
Call Chrysler about your jeep grand cherokee window regulators.
Both my front regulators broke. I called Chrysler about it and they were willing to work with me so i could get the regulators replaced while only paying a copay instead of the full $400. I paid $50 as my copay for each window and that covered the dealership replacing the regulator and putting in a brand new window.
This was on my 2003 jeep grand cherokee, and Chrysler even gave me the copay deal with my jeep having over 100,000 miles on it.
#23 of 50 Refusal to recall defective window regulators on Jeep
Jul 14, 2009 (2:57 pm)
The window regulators on the Jeep are defective and they should have been recalled.I have had this problem with the same window twice.
Thinking about a class action suit.
If anybody is interested contact me.
I have a consumer attorney
#24 of 50 Why no class action?
Jul 21, 2009 (2:27 pm)
After arguing with my local dealer, I've now had to pay $400 to replace the driver-side regulator only months after paying $400 for the passenger side, on my 2003 grand cherokee.
Calling Chrysler was absolutely no help -- they denied there is a problem, which is pretty silly given it took all of 5 minutes to research and find there IS a problem. From what I read, I can expect the other two regulators to fail in the coming months as well. Unbelievable.
Why is there no class action for this?
