#107 of 116 2002 Jeep Liberty power window lift plate
Jan 13, 2013 (12:44 pm)
I spent $182.00 on a whole new power window assembly only to return it. The lift plate on the new assembly was plastic. After popping off my door panel my lift plate is metal. What broke on mine was the plastic tubing that the cable runs through which is a much easier and cheaper fix..

Your lift plates may have already been previously replaced with Steiger Performance parts.

I have the same issue with the issuejust being the plastic tubing. How were you able to separate the tubing in order to replace it? My original 2003 Renegade was metal and the reaplcement I just purchased from the dealer is plastic. Seems like it would be taking some steps back. So I would like to try to stick with my orignal metal one.

I did a quick fix with duct tape wrapped around then i put more on long ways. Its working great for now I do plan on buying a piece of tubing and clamping it about 2 inches on both sides. Im waiting for the weather to be a bit warmer and some snow to melt.
I agree with stepping backwards with the plastic that's why i returned the new assembly
#112 of 116 More Window Issues
Mar 17, 2013 (9:10 am)
I bought a 07 Liberty new off the lot, within two years the windows started to break. I have become familiar with the unique popping sound that accompanies the window issue. To date I have fixed 8 windows all the way around the car. I am beyond fed up. The most recent window to break resulted in the tubing being sucked into the door itself resulting in a jammed door. On the bright side I have never had a problem using the warranty on the problem, however the jammed door resulted in an extra $293 to fix. Dark side, the warranty only lasts for another 10 months. After that we are all on our own. Currently I am searching for a new car...that has functional windows.

Our problems were all solved with the wifes 2002 Liberty that she bought new. A few months ago she was driving home from work on the interstate going 70 mph. Liberty started swerving back and forth in a jerking fashion as she was trying to get it under control. The next thing she knew she was off the road and a lady was trying to get her out of the car. The Liberty had rolled 5 times down the middle of the highway and off the road and landed on the one and only wheel left on the vehicle. The rear axle was laying 20 yards away with wheels still intact. Our insurance company and a rep from Jeep inspected the vehicle from top to bottom and found nothing structurally wrong. A week later there was a recall on the 2004 and newer Libertys about the rear end falling off the frame. Strange that the older ones weren't included in that same recall. So......after Doctor and Hospital bills that we are still paying for we now drive a Chevrolet Equinox. No more Jeep products for this family...period.

I am amazed that so many people are still not using the replacement metal fittings that have been developed by Steiger Performance products.
I have a 2007 Liberty (Cherokee here in Australia) and once the plastic bits started failing, bought a set of the metal parts.
Do yourselves a favour and have a look here: http://www.steigerperformance.com/

Had both drop within 6 months of each other on my 06 Diesel, was told by dealer in 05 when I first bought it this would happen. Lucky I have some good friends at Tomball Dodge/Jeep that take good financial care of me.
