#22 of 50 Window Regulator

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?

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?

I didn't need any. But I got the regulator from Advanced Auto . I'm sure if you do a search you will find them on their web site. Also I remember reading that NAPA also has them. Thanks to this site I replaced my regulator for $97.00 instead of around $450.00

Two windows just went out on my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Two windows in less than a week. I'm interested in joining a class-action if anyone knows of one.

#29 of 50 fix it yourself.
Jul 29, 2009 (10:01 am)
listen fix it yourself, Im 63 and have not work on my cars in years. With the help of this site and the price and web site of Advanced Auto Parts, I fixed it for $97.00. It is not hard, take your time and think when you are doing it. You do not need to get it all done in one day. Once you look see what is going on , you put some wood to hold window up. (I left two bolts in also). It took me about 45 min., if I had to do it again it would take me 20 min. I agree there should have been a recall. I did not buy a new jeep this time.
#30 of 50 Jeep WIndow Regulators

After replacing the front passenger side window regulator of my daughters 2001 Jeep Cherokee, she then had both rear window regulators go out and on my other daughters 2003 Jeep Liberty she had one rear window regulator go out. After I had the first one fixed, I had the other three blocked up until I could decide what I wanted to do. Then I found the following website: http://www.josh-n-lisa.com/2006/08/29/howto-change-a-jeep-power-window-regulator- / .
So I taped the windows up and took the three regulators out. I begin thinking of ways to repair. I went to Home Depot and purchased cotter pins (3/32 x 3/4 inch). For the Jeep Cherokee, I run a cotter pin around the cable and through the hole of the plastic nylon piece that had broke and secured it on the backside. I went ahead and put a cotter pin in the one that was not broke so I would not have to do it again in the future and just to provide a better secure fit, I put some marine epoxy in the holes to fill eliminate the wobble. Put it all back together and BINGO FIXED! Works like a charm.
For the Jeep Liberty, the regulator is completely different. But I used the same technique to repair it. I drilled a small hole “3/32) through the plastic anchor being careful not to pierce the side that slides on the tracking bar. Then I placed the cotter pin around the cable and sunk it between the spring that covers the cable to provide the clearance I needed so the tracking would slide freely and secured it on the back side. ONCE again BINGO FIXED!
Thanks to the referenced website. It got me to thinking and considering ways to repair them rather than replace them. You cannot just get the piece that is broke, you have to purchase the complete unit. It took very little time and effort to repair. Cost: 70 cents for a bag of cotter pins and 5 dollars for the epoxy.
