Yes. A new Window Regulator is a bout $60.00. (eBay)
You will need to remove the door panel. There are three bolts holding the Regulator in (10mm) and two more holding the window glass to the regulator. It's a little tricky getting the regulator out and back in.
You will need to position the window and regulator about 2/3 up so you can get to the screws.

First thing you need to do is to remove the inner door panel so you can see exactly what has happened inside. To do this, find any visible screws and remove them Usually in arm rest and the handle cover, sometimes some are hidden. The perimeter is snapped into place with small plastic "trees" that most times can be pulled out or pried out with a screwdriver (they also make a tool for this). Once panel is free, push in and up at top to disengage from edge of window lip,
You can get an inexpensive manual like haynes to guide you through this. If you can't find one, your best reference is the opposite side door...Open that one up and you can see what it looks like when it's working. Once youi can see what failed, then you can get what you need to make the repair. Scrapyards are a good inexpensive source for parts but with door components generally they will not take parts from doors that are "clean", as they generally sell those as complete replacements. Be careful working inside doors the metal edges inside are sharp.
Good luck.
PS your post made me laugh...I see that you are a woman, but I doubt if you need fixing...only your Jeep does, and that is fixable!!!

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you can readjust the window mechanics.

If you can take off the inner door panel-not that hard to do-then you could see what caused it to be off track, and probably fix it. If the window regulator mechanism has to come out of door to fix it, a little more difficult but within the scope of experienced owners who do their own work. It will save you big repair bills.

Rear driver side window i believe came off the track, i can here the motor spining but the window does not go down is this a easy fix i can do recently happen after the big snow storm..

Very common problem - especially when the windows are operated with snow and ice on them. Your window regulator is probably broken. There is no cheap fix. The last time I had a broken regulator in a Mitsubishi, The part was only available at the dealer. Most of the aftermarket places stock the motor but not the regulator. The regulator from the dealer will come with a new motor on it. When I replace a regulator on a car that has a good motor, I usually give the old motor back to my customers so they can use it in the event that one of the motors should fail.

Rear window is off track

Its a little time consuming,pretty straight forward. I would send the job out to a body shop . They do this in there sleep and if after you remove the door panel you determine that the regulator is rotted or missing parts , your not waiting around for days with a busted window for your parts to come in. Money well spent. especially if your vandalized or it rains( not to mention the glass window will cut you if your not careful.) Also the sheet metal fram arond this window claims skin even from a pro.

4 Door. Drivers side rear window has dropped down

window regulator has failed. Look for an after market one the GM replacement is junk. Usually it is a clip that holds the cable to run window up and down. probably a safety clip used if someone gets cought in the window, GM will charge you over $400 for the fix. not hard I have it down to about 30 min. and around $100 for the regulator.

Rear driver side power window does not work

This seems to be an ongoing problem. I had the passenger side break a year ago and now its the drivers side. Last time it was about a $500 repair if I remember right.

Rear window slipping down about 1 inch, but still on the track.

The Regulator will fix the problem. The tracks might also need a little adjustment.(loosen bolts move track then retighten) Try holding the window while you are rasing it you might be able to guide it up so that it will close a bit more.

Yes. I have fixed my driver side window several times. The window went all the way down and came off the track, usually because the window automatically went all the way down. The first step was to take the interior side of the door off: (1) I unscrewed the screws around the door and pull the plastic screws out. (2) I disconnected the thin metal rod that connects the door handle to the door frame to be able to pull the interior part of the door away from the metal frame of the door. (3) I unscrewed the speaker to see where the window meets the rubber track. (4) I kept the electrical wires connected so that I could use the electric window button to lower and raise the window. (5) I lowered the window down below the rubber track and loosened the screw holding the rubber track to the door. (6) I manually adjusted the rubber track around the window glass and pressed the electric window button up slowly, making sure the glass stayed on the track. (7) I put everything back in place, screwed in the screws, etc. Be careful not to let the window go all the way down, because it seems to fall off the track at that point. Hope this helps!

Cable has broken out of thier holders where they attach to the window what has to be replaced can i jerry rig it

I'm in the same boat. We had the rear window replaced by the shop a couple of months ago, but the driver side window is doing the same thing. I don't want to spend another $250 if I can do it myself.
