Instructions for 2001 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab drivers side front window with the center beam (non-scissor) like regulator / window glide. This is a moderate to easy job that can be done by a home mechanic and requires no special tools.


1. Remove the window control module from the door with a flat head screwdriver by prying it up and out of the hole. Once out, disconnect the two wiring harnesses and set the module aside.


2. Remove the inside door panel. There are 5 screws total, 1 under the door latch (pop open the plastic cover), 1 under the door handle, 2 along the bottom, and 1 small screw very top right.

With screws removed, push from the bottom and slide the panel straight up about 1 inch, then pull the top out to gain access to one more wiring harness and the door handle rods. Disconnect the last smaller wiring harness, then disconnect the 2 rods connected to the door handle. These rods simply pop out of the white plastic connector by pushing on them sideways with your fingers. Once it pops out sideways, pull the rods straight up to remove them from the hole in the connector.


3. Pull the white insulating cover partially off from top down far enough to expose access to the inside of the door.


4. Remove the glass. Put the window all the way down until the 2 bolts holding the window glass to the slide are exposed. Remove both bolts, then pull the window up and out of the door from the top. It's easier to get the glass out if you remove the trim around the edge of the window frame. All trim is simply friction fit and pops right out and back in. Note you will have to tilt the glass just right to get it out, but it does come out (from the inside of door was easiest).


5. Remove the window motor and slide. They are an assembly and come out together. First, disconnect the motors wiring connector (that wire is fed thru a hole in the door panel). Then, remove the 3 bolts holding the motor on, and remove the 4 bolts (2 top, 2 bottom) holding the center slide on. You can then pull the motor and the glide all out through the big hole in the door as a unit.


6. Install the new assembly in exact position as the old assembly. Before putting glass back in, reconnect the window control module to the door and test that the slide motor is not DOA and that it powers the center slide up and down smoothly without binding the cables/etc.


7. If everything looks good, put everything back on in reverse order.

I need to replace the rear passenger side window regulator in my 2001 dakota quad cab. I have taken it apart, removed the old regulator, and propped up the window


I had the same problem and found the broken lower cable guide laying in the bottom of the door. I drilled 2 holes thru the lower end of the regulator and remounted the guide with 2 screws. I then restrung the cable over the guides (not easy to do) and reinstalled the regulator in the door. It works like new.

1. check fuses
2. if motors are good, more likely it is, it will be the windows regulator or windows switch, both tend to wear out the contacts over times. the windows switch pretty expensive, its run about 123.00 buck each and the regulator run 59.00 each. more likely will be regulator. if it not the windows switch is good. hope that help some, both not hard to replace and not easy.

Driver side window in 2001 Dakota


Jon,

after changing 2 regulators in my Dakota (1 front driver and 1 rear passenger), I can tell you that if the cables have "come off the track", then the regulator needs to be replaced. There are several Delrin clips/fasteners that hold the cable system in place. When one of these cracks/breaks, the cables come off the regulator assembly, and there's just no way to "re-route" since the mechanism is broken. I guess there is a small chance that one end of the cable just slipped out of the slotted holder, but I'm betting that one (or more) of the plastic clips have broken, and you need to change out the entire regulator. There not too hard to do, and you can by replacement aftermarket ones for about a $100. The first one I had replaced was done by a dealership, and it cost me $425.87....most of which was labor. Hope this helps.
