Hi my name is Allen!

This is a common problem with Chrysler vehicles.
The cable on the regulator has broken allowing the window to slide downward, unfortunately the only repair is replacement of the Regulator/Motor Assembly which must be bought at the dealership.

To remove the door panel, you must remove all the screws and remove the handle that opens the door, next grab the panel and pull upward if doesn't move upward you will need to pull it toward you away from the door, pull very hard the clips holding it are very tight, sometimes you will need to install a screw driver at the bottom of the panel, put it between the panel and the door and pry toward you. They will make a pooping sound that sounds like you breaking the door but its OK, pull it hard, then lift upward and toward you. That's It!

Back window fell halfway down will not go back up. it will roll down, but only goes up halfway.


Sounds like it fell off the track.Remove door panel and speaker to get a good look inside door. There is a motor and a cable that moves the window up and down on the regulator. you could plug the switch in and watch it work . It could be the regulator and most are held in by rivets just drill them out and use nuts and bolts

My front driver window fell off the track or the clips fell apart. I got the interior panel off have realigned the glass...... Now what, is there a diagram of the window and track so that I could just put...


you should have adjustments along the bottom of the tracks, what you need to do, is get the window inside those glides, and squeeze the slides into the edges of the glass window, that should keep it in line and on track here watch this, it might give you a better idea, this is pretty much the same as with Most door glass http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uu3SiUyWo-8

Driver window off track,went to roll window down and window fell inside of door.Window crank turns freely.


remove door panel, If you are mechanically inclined you can figure out how to connect the regulator (operating assembly) back to the window by removing mounting bolts of assembly and pivoting. Something came loose or broke, window guides are worn (plastic parts), or assembly is way out of alignment for window to fall off track....

The drivers side window just fell, but i can still hear the motor turn when i push the button....what happened and how do i fix it??


Your window came off the track. You need to take the door panel off the inside of the door. Once you get the panel off you will see how the window operates and the track that it sits inside normally. I suggest purchasing a repair manual. A repair manual for your specific vehicle will have pictures to aid you and will boost your confidence to attempt the fix yourself. Remember, something made your window come out of the track. You'll have to figure that out before you bother putting everything back in place. A lot of those parts are made of plastic and become brittle. Good Luck

Window off track driver side 1997 sebring


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

Power window fell down inside door


there are clips holding the door panel around the edges. to remove the clips, use a small screwdriver to feel for them, then use another one to pull the panel on the other side. Pull outward from both sides of the clip until it comes loose. Do this repeatedly, and then loosen and remove the arm rest.

Pull the window up and have a helper hold it as you work it back into the track.

Good luck.

REMOVING A DOOR PANEL


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
