Rear Driver Window Falls Down

I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited that the rear window just falls down. Last week I heard a small bang in the door, and after that the window would not let up or down electrically, but started falling down. After checking, I could push the window up or down with my hand. Any ideas what is causing this?

Thanks

    I had the same problem first the drivers side rear window and 2 weeks later the passengers rear window, all you can do is replace the regulator, you can get them from Mopar.

    I have replaced both rear window regulators and now the passenger side has broken again! It was under extended warrenty before but now it's my dime - this should be a recall issue!!

This is common with most Jeeps. The window regulators are ****. Both of my back window regulators in my Jeep failed overnight within a week. I called Jeep about it and they pretty much said ya, it's not a safety recall even though my Jeep could have been stolen without anyone having to break in. Instead of paying $800-$1000 from the Jeep dealership to get them fixed, I opted to go to home depot and get some of those thick aluminum flower hangers and bent them so that they hang my windows up and mounted them using bolts and washers. The windows won't roll down, but at least I'm not paying for more regulators to go bad in the future. Do a search online and you will see mega horror stories from people constantly replacing them with no payback from Jeep. This is definitely the only Jeep I will ever own. Chrysler/Jeep sucks for customer support. I would not recommend changing a window regulator unless it's on their dime, but good luck with that!!

We've fixed this 4 times on our 2003 so I did research and found this explanation: It has seemed to be a problem. Due to the center console it is easy for the arm to rest on the switch for the rear driver side window. This causes the spring that controls the window to break. It seems as if it is off track. You just need a new window regulator. Unfortunately it is a dealer item and unless you you go to a junkyard it's expensive.

2001 oldsmobile aurora rear door driver side window glass falls down and does not work with the electric switch


If you can hear the motor running while pressing the window switch you may have a broken clip or something in the way causing the window to slip off track. If no sound comes while pressing the window button you may need a power window regulator motor "OR" the window button itself may need replacing. If the window was down when it stopped working and had to be manually rolled back up, this can cause the glass to randomly fall back inside the door. This is because the car thinks that the window is still down and will continue to fall until it tells the computer that the window was closed using the power window button. If the window falls at just the wrong angle you could end up having to replace the glass as well.

You will need to replace the window regulator, thats the part with all the cables coming out of it. The door panel will need to come off in order to replace.

I usually spray guide tracks with a silicone spray. It works pretty well. Up north where I am, when sprayed on door seals it keeps doors from freezing closed as well!

Rear window falls down


The same thing just happened to me. I took off the door panel, pulled off the white barrier, and found the problem. There is a white plastic connector at the bottom of the window that connects the cable to the window and the track for the power-window. The connector has broke and the cable cannot grip the connector so the window falls. Its hard to tell because it will still be connected to the track, its just a small part of the connector that broke off. I have found that the only way to fix it is to replace the whole assembly. Don't waste time taking apart the motor housing, it is a pain. I found, and bought, the whole assembly on ebay motors for $120.00 shipping and all. If you have some tech abilities it shouldnt be too bad. If you need more info, just e-mail me, Im waiting for my part and will be assembling soon.
