Rear door window dropped into the door

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Is there any trick to removing the door panels in this vehicle?  Id like to grab a regulator from the dealer and do it myself as I have done in the past.

    I am having the expact same problem. So far I have had to remove the entire door panel, which required a phillips head as well as a star headed driver, then unhook the latch, remove stereo speaker take the three bolts out of the door, and four smaller bolts on the motor that connects to the pulley system. I appears my pulley cables are ruined so I would like to know how to repair those...

    This is the second one for me. The first one was the drivers side window about a year ago. I took it to the dealer and they fixed it for free. However, my warranty is now gone so Im going to do it myself. So you havent seen any expansion tabs or the like? Its all phillips and star?

    The pulley system is the regulator system. If the pulleys are worn, which is quite common, they will need to be replaced. You can get regulator kits on the web or at a dealer (if you want to pay an arm and a leg).

Check wiring harness in between door and body, most likley there is a broken wire in this harness.
To get the window up you will need to remove the panel and apply a power and ground direcly to the moter connector. if it does not go up then reverse the polarity

Power windows don't work on all 4 doors and power lock doesn't work on the driver door. 2004 jeep grand cherokee

On the driver side, the window/door lock module has the power lead either pulling away from the connection or has broke entirely. Another common cause is the wire harness between the door jam, this is the area that has a rubber boot covering the wires and from opening and closing the door, it creates a broken or loose connection over time. Open the driver side door, grab the rubber boot that the wires run thru, and move it around. Some times this will help create the connection and restore the power. If not, the door panel will need to be removed to inspect the wire connections.

How do you remove the driver side door panel on a 2004 Jeep Cherokee.

- Remove trim plug from mirror flag bezel.
- Remove screws attaching trim panel to door
- Using a trim remover, detach trim panel perimeter push-in fasteners from door trim panel
- Lift trim panel upward and separate from door.
- If equipped, disconnect harness connectors for power accesories.
- Disconnect latch rods from inside handle actuator
- Finally, separate trim panel from vehicle.

I suggest check all information in the WJ Repair Manual Section 23 Body with graphics and other details.
