Question about 2006 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

RR window on my 02 Lib fell and now that door won't open!

I need to open the door to remove the interior door panel to replace the regulator, BUT...now the door only opens 3/4 inch and then the latch catches on something. I'm suspecting the broken window cable may be keeping the lock mechanism from fully releasing. Would opening the front door and then removing the rear door hinge bolts from the front edge of the door help?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

As a last resort, I might try something like that, but remember that the door is heavy and that hanging it from the latch assembly will not do good things to the latch. If you try that, I'd first open the window and tie the door off to the roof rack to keep the door weight off the latch. Likely the latch will not release by removing the hinge bolts, but it may give you more room to get the inside panel removed.

Got in my car, went to roll down the window and heard a pop. Then the window rolled all the way down and now it won't roll up.


Sounds like the window track fell off the window regulator. Sometimes you can replace the roller that goes between regulator & motor, but most times you will need to replace window regulator. Take off interior door panel & see which option is possible.
