I'm in. Today I'm replacing window #2 and waiting with bated breath for the other two to fail. I'm a single mother on a limited income (especially with the economy the way it is) and I can't afford to keep paying to replace something that they know darn well they should have recalled a LONG time ago.

actmiller I like your style, Thanks for the tip!! for the rest, I concur, this plan of action DOES work like a charm!
To clarify, I did everything as mentioned, additionally I had to pop out the rivet that connects the plastic cable housing to the top of the track. I had to disconnect the track in order to have room to get the cotter pin securely attached around the cable. When I re-attached the track to the cable housing, instead of using another rivet, I used a 3/32 x 3/4" metal screw with a lock nut.
One other tip is be generous with the epoxy.... I had to do this procedure twice, b/c the first time I didn't use enough..... Good Luck!

Thanks for the idea with cotter pin( refuse to spend anymore money on this piece of crap) . I am now on my third window regulator of my 2002 Grand Cherokee. I had the rear replaced and the front passenger regulator went four days later.

Major problem I had was the cable inside the motor drum had jumped the track and had to be rewound. Another problem was compressing the springs on drum enough to get the cable back on the pulleys which required wrapping bailing wire around the ends of springs and compressing by twisting the wire with a needle nose pliers. Sure glad this info availiable it helped a bunch and aved major $$. Thanks Gary

I've had both front regulators for my windows go out this past year on my 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The dealership wanted over $ 500.00 to change one out.
Thank god for Ebay! Found new window regulators for around $ 60.00 and replaced myself.
Dealerships are now like Jewelry stores 300 % markup or more!
