Normally when the motor goes, I would always recommend replacing the the entire Power window regulator, the reason being that the plastic rollers break, thus allowing slipping of the cable, thus resulting in you being frustrated not being able to raise/ lower your window. all that being said a new regulator online is about 130.00 (325.00 from dealer + labor). Autopartswarehouse.com (this is where i bought mine) replaced it and have been happy!. you must already know how to get the panel off and get to the motor, with all that there are several steps left, and you will be happy again, remove the three bolts around the regulator, the 4 bolts securing the window tracks and the two clips or bolts securing the window to the window bracket, re assemble and you will be much happier, Good Luck !!!

durangos have many problems with the windows motors and regulators, I know for personal experience , because I have one, ...when you try rolling the windows down do you hear any noise coming from inside the door..if so.. the cable is busted ..you will need the windows regulator, if no, is probably the motor..you will have to check for power and ground right at the motor connector...if power and ground are present, then you need a motor ....in mine ,I pull the motor and cleaned , and they have been fine for more than a year, I starter with one and them had to do the same to all of them..hope this help

I just changed my front passenger power window motor and cable(the cable broke into). If it makes a sound then the motor is probably good, most likely the cable has snapped.I own a 2000 Chevy Impala LS. There is a good video on you tube that shows how to do it.

2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 passenger window does not roll up or down. When I press the switch on the drivers or passenger side a click is heard. Could it be a regulator or motor?


This vehicle has a cable style regulator, which has probably snapped a cable. Replacement regulators come with a motor already installed. New aftermarket units cost around 125 to 150 and are fairly easy to install.

Windows wont roll up or down


window regulator. no clue without looking at it if you have a cable driven one or a gear driven one though.
if cable driven, sounds like the cable has snapped. if gear driven (most likely) then the plastic gears inside the window motor on the regulator have finally worn and stripped out.

We have a 1999 Grand Cherokee Jeep. The window on the passenger side snapped, fell down and is not working. The plastic unit that holds the cables broke letting the window slam down and it jammed the gear...


If this is what I am thinking of it is called a window regulator. Which consist of a frame and the window motor. Usually they only sell this as one unit. which makes it quite a bit more expensive and most of the time the motor will work just fine.

The power window on my truck will come down, but won't go back up. The motor seems to be working fine. I need a diagram of all the parts so I can determine which parts need to be repaired or replaced....


The power window regulator and motor come as am assembly. Usually the cable snaps and the window drops down and won't come back up. About a $400 repair.
