I have a 2003 jeep liberty which I purchased with one back window not working (Wired shut with coat hanger wire) and one window that would keep falling down. After taking apart the door panel and looking at the regulator as you are all surprised to find out the plastic piece that holds the window up broke off from wearing inside the tube. I contacted the dealership and was told each regulator was a little over $200 and no other replacement was available online from the parts people. I searched on line and found this form. I did purchase the replacement metal clips from Steiger Performance and installed them about 3 months ago and the windows are still going up and down. I thought for $80 the part was expensive, but considerably cheaper than a new regulator. I would have been happy putting in a few plastic clips if they were $3 but this is a solution that works and should last longer than the vehicle. I don't know why Jeep is not purchasing these parts from Steiger and offering them as a solution to everyone's problems, but they just don't seem to want to solve it. If anyone else has similar issues, some mechanical ability (pretty easy job) is all you need to solve your problems for good.

There's a fix. It's called the Lemon Law. If every single person who posted would open a case, Chrysler would do something about it.

I'm not an expert on Lemon Laws, but I doubt if a power window issue would qualify.

There is a class action lawsuit over the window regulators (Class Action Case No. 10CV2623IEG BLM). Hopefully in about 10-15 years, once the case is settled, i will get a check in the mail, less attorneys fees of course ($350.00-$347.50=$2.50). Until then....no more jeeps in my future (pronounced "heeps" in case you were wondering). Styling and "initial" quality is great, long term quality is crap and standing behind their product is non existant. Why fix the problem when the service Dept. can make $350 a pop on us loyal jeep owners?
I think jeep will eventually go away as the MPG standards get ratcheted up. My Liberty was getting 13.5 MPG before i got rid of it.

Ok so the jeep company is really no help at all. I have an 06 jeep liberty and have had both the back window regulators replaced while under warrenty. Now I have paid the car off and it is out of warrenty and ofcourse now i have the two back window regulators out and the passenger front side has also gone out all within 2 months time. I called the customer service line what a joke that was. DO NOT BUY A JEEP OR ANYTHING FOR THAT MATTER FROM THE JEEP COMPANY.

I think it does qualify under most state lemon laws (although I am not an expert either). The statute is written that it has to "substantially impact the saftey, use, or value of the vehicle." I think the window issue impares both the value and the use substantially. If you've been to the dealer more than 3 times for the window issue - open a case!

I have a Jeep Liberty (09-05) and the left rear window dropped down as my wife was driving. We purchased this Jeep for winter driving as it is four wheel drive, and now should another window drop down in the dead of winter and us out on the road at our age 72 years plus.?
The cost of changing out all the windows is out of our budget, and why they know this part often fails and continue its use I do not understand.

My window recently made this really loud noise when i put it down and this cable started coming up,took it to the dealer and they told me it was my window regulator it was broken,& it is not covered under the extended warranty,it's only the lift plate. So now i am suppose to pay 209.00 dollars to have it fixed. I have read that a lot of people have had these problems and some how got Chrysler to have them fixed,can anyone tell me how? I also called Chrysler and they told me the exact same thing

I had an odd experience with a failed window regulator on my 2006 Liberty CRD last year and found that it pays to talk to more than one dealer. Although I had over 100k miles on my Jeep, I found a dealer who replaced the window regulator completely free of charge. Lucky, I guess!
