Door panels are easy, it's what's under them that can pose a problem. Just remove the screws from the armrest, and latch. Around the edge, put a thin flat screwdriver and go along until you feel resistance from a pop pin. Gently pry until it pops out of the door. Go the whole way around until the panel is loose, and lift it off. To reinstall it, hang it from the window ledge before you start to push the pop pins back in.

2004 jeep liberty, window drive broken, fell down, now rear door is locked and cannot open inside or out


If your careful you can get the door panel out of the window trim at top with out breaking it. Hooter day is best to do it as the plastic panel is more pliable. Once out wedge it back some and pull the trim out. This will give you a good inch plus gap to work threw. Most like the cable has wrapped around it. Flash light to see it and bent coat hanger, long screw driver or bar. You should be able to get it open.

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
