If you have never done a repair job like this, you must use extreme caution because it can be dangerous if it is a power window. The danger is in the scissor action of the two window regulator arms that cross each other. They are preloaded and are made from pressed steel, meaning they have sharp edges, and if you don't know how to unload the powerful spring, it becomes a very large pair of scirrors.

I also used heavy leather gloves when handling these regulators. Bottomline, it is best left for a window/glass specialist.

I need to put a window in jeep grand cher., 1995....can I do it myself? How?

From my experience, if you are selective (don't use autoflite) it is just as cheap to take it to a smaller auto window place if you live in a larger town.

I replaced the rear window in my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee myself and by the time I bought all the little accessories and the time it was down, it would have been about $35 cheaper for me to have it done by my local small glass shop. Glass shops must get some great volume discounts, because it was cheaper through them than what I could order.

The drivers side window can be opperated from the drivers side. The passanger side window does not opperate from either side . It appears that the window lock safety swith on the drivers side is not...

If the problem was with the lock you would still be able to raise or lower the window from the drivers seat,most likely the window motor has burned up,I would try pulling the door panel and tap the motor most times they will work for awhile,but ebay has the whole window regulator with motor for 99.00 I had to replace both driver and passenger in my 01 grand cherokee.was a1auto I think on ebay.

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport automatic sometimes won't start

switch can be changed, instructions in most manuals (even cheap ones) New one is about$ 230, used abt $30, or you can take apart old one and clean contacts but be careful on disassembly or stuff inside will fall out. Should take about an hour or so. Hardest part is removal because they get stuck on shaft.

Power window regulator

to be honest with you, the only repair is to replace the motor/cable assembly. you should be able to purchase this through your local auto parts retailer. you could get it from a junkyard, but you never know when that one will break. If you use OEM parts"dealer parts", you know you'll have the correct parts, but they'll oonly sell you the complete assembly(with the OEM price tag of course). Hope this helps.

1989 Jeep Cherokee - Electrical Problem - horn, brake lights, blinkers, radio/cd...

I think I have found the problem. When I wiggle the ignition switch the turn signals and radio go on and off so I feel the issue is in the ignition switch. From what I understand the actual electronics for the switch are at the base of the sterring column behind the lower dash panel and is connected by a rod that may need adjusting.
