Window fell in my 02 dodge durango. Found white piece of a clip in bottom of door. Motor still runs. Both wires unhooked from motor. What to do to fix it?

The piece of plastic you found was the clip that holds window to track. Sometimes you can change the clips most times need another window which has the clips installed. I would recommend a salvage yard

All parts inside door are good , the window was frozen and went to open window and glass seperated from the track, what do I need to do to reattach glass to track? Goo, clips what holds glass to track

Did the plastic window retaining clips break? If so then I suggest to either fabricate metal clips, or buy them, and JB weld them to the glass. In 10 years this is the only way to defeat the plastic windoiw retaining clip problem.

What is the name of the part that holds the cables inside the passenger door

I'm not sure exactally what your mean but if you are talking about wiring, there is just a bunch of plastic clips. If you mean the part for the window that rolls it up and down if you have power windows it's called a window regulator. Hope that helps

My window rocker switch for the drivers window broke - is it hard to replace myself?

The 2005 is an easy one as MNfisherman posted, no screws with it.

The outside of the panel has 2 spring clips holding it in place, use a plastic trim tool, or plastic putty knife to pop up the spring clips. I insert the trim tool, and turn it clockwise to pop it up. First time will be hard.

Once the spring clips are released, pick up on the outside of the panel ( to release the tabs ) and pull towards the inside to remove.

This is what the back of it looks like

I remove the speaker grille prior to this, to provide more room when removing the switch panel tabs, but some have had good luck without removing it ( your call ).
The grille is mounted with plastic tabs, start with the "point" area at the bottom, and pry out, and work your way around if you want to remove the grille.

Three of my windows will not roll down in my 1999 Saturn S series. Sometimes, they manage to roll down, but I then have to pull them back up because they won't roll back up. How much do you think it will...

I had this problem on my SL2 - there was a little plastic clip that was broken and I had to purchase the entire window assembly (or something like that it was called) because the plastic clip wasn't sold separately. I likely paid 300-400 total including the labor because it takes forever just to take apart the door and the part wasn't very cheap either.

Need help with fixing power window

I'm pretty sure, that is sold as a regulator unit only. And it's not cheap. Sometimes it's cheaper at a glass place than the dealer.
