Question about 2007 Dodge Nitro R/T New Cars

My rear window won't go up or down and I pulled it apart and the cables were frayed and out of the little pulley, I think it is the regulator. Can I replace this easily myself or should I take it in.

You got a broken plastic parts of your window riser, and that's the cause of derailment. If you can find the broken part, use dual epoxy to bind them.Align the nylon teeth on the gears....If the nylon gears and teeths were broken then you have to replace the whole part.

Left rear window went down and won't go up

Posted this earlier...similar problem..

First do you hear it trying to work, is it like a "clack, clack, clack" sound? or you hear the motor running smoothly? You will need to remove the door panel and take a look behind the plastic water seal to see whats going on, it is either going to be the regulator ( part the motor is attached to...cable broke)/damaged or more likely the nylon bushings inside the motor itself, they run like 10 bucks on Amazon. If you take the motor out of the regulator assembly be careful not to let the cable system come apart/unwind( use nylon ties while motor is out to hold in place). The motor itself is straight forward open/replace worn/falling apart nylon bushings/relube/reassemble. The tricky part is not screwing up the regulator assembly...depends on your skills.

How to rewind window wire

you can not. The regulator must be replaced. I think the Lincoln LS has the same regulator. Rears famous for the cable snapping. Same issue in front sometimes.

The rear door power window regulator may become inoperative, leaving the vehicle operator unable to raise or lower the rear window glass. In most instances, only the power window regulator mechanism requires replacement and the window motor can be reused.

Hi the wire that runs through the motor is come apart. The motor works but the wire jams in the pulley area, and the end where the spring is, is out.

that rear window regulator cable breaking is a common GM fault and I think i told you already you are going to have to buy a new regulator and install it or have it installed.

Rear window wont go up. Motor works but seems to be binding

The window regulator, is cable driven, the regulator will have to be replace, when the cable goes bad, that's the sound you hear, you can more then likely move the window up and down a little.

2001 GMC power window repair- front drivers side

I am not 100% familar about the innerworkings of your particular truck but in majority of GM aplications there is a Bar that goes along the Bottom of the Window that has plastic clips in at least 2 locations these clip attach to a Cable and pulley system that is attached to the power window motor raise the window when You press the button

Follow this link to see a photo of the Whole regulator assembly

*many of the pieces can be ordered individual from the dealer
before I order anything If I were you I check and see if the cable had come off one of the pulleys causing it to get stock and fray the cable... You might get away with just putting a block of wood in the bottom of the door to support the window when you manually pull it to the raised position and try and free the cable.

Note that the entire assembly can be taken apart and the window can be left in the door. This is a several hours long job for a mechanically inclined person with no experience I have changed 1 on a pontiac Aztek 2002 model and a 2002 Trailblazer which uses the same part as the envoy ...

note carefull of cutting the knuckles I did that a few times when replacing the assembly.

good luck

Rear Passenger window won't roll up

No the only way to fix these wire regulators is replace them, they are fairly cheap, think about it, you pull the door panel, remove the regulator try to fix it and put it back, right away it fouls up, you have worked hard for nothing, replace it.
