Most likely the Black Plastic piece is a gromett, and it goes on to the regulator then snaps into the window's cut out hole, this allows the window to secure it self to the regulator.

Look or feel down on the bottom of the inside of the door, and see if theres any thing else that might of come off or broke, like a pin or a clip, once you secure the gromet to the window there should be a clip or a push pin that holds it into place.

Let me know if this helps, I will try to find a picture of the regulator diagram for you it might take some time.

My front passenger window just falls down inside the door and the switch doesn't have any effect what do i do to fix it?

It sounds like your window regulator failed.
Its a remove and replace type of repair, but getting door panels off and regualtors pulled can be a wrestling match

I have a 2000 Cherokee sport 4 door, 4wd. The left windows work fine but the right front and rear do not work. The LED light on the switch itself is lit. I replaced the window regulator for the front left...

Take a door panel off on the right, and see if you have power and ground going to the regulator when you press the button. If you dont, then your going to be chasing wires

How to replace window regulator on 1999 jeep grand cherokee passenger side front

sorry I don't have much on this one. But, once the door panel is removed, you need to disconnect the glass from the regulator. I can't remember... but I think it is held on with U clips. They are just pushed in on the back side of the trolly. Too release them just push to one side. (see pic)
2218041.jpg *****NOTE: this is from another vehicle but the pin is the the pic. the pin is being pushed back into place.

push the glass all the way to the top of the door and tape it there. Unplug the motor, unbolt the regulator and remove.

4803164.jpg (Im pretty sure that year had 2 pins to hold in the door glass, if I'm wrong you will clearly see 2 X 10mm bolts holding the glass to the regulator)
hope this helps.

Are the Window regulators for the Cherokee Sport and the Grand

Check with a local scrap yard... they would know best. As far as I know, unless there is a difference in door shape, regulator should be the same. Name differences generally denote trim packages, and don't affect hard parts that much.
