    Yes,

    My window is not on its pulley system anymore. I've taken the motor out as far as I can and came to a sight reviews.ebvay.com , window regulator and motor replacement that almost got me to some good info but what we really need is a diagram on how it goes back together. I cant see well enough. I may take the passengers door apart to see what a functioning mechanism looks like

    I replaced the driver side regulator 4 times, 1 time for the right rear passenger side and now the front passenger side on my 2002. Same problem all the time. The plastic guide breaks and you have to replace the whole regulator unit. To remove the front door cover, remove screws on the bottom, one inside the door handle cover by a plastic cap and one by the mirror. Than lift door. Disconnect cable from door control and 2 rods from the door latch. Similar for the rear door. I will never buy a dodge again.

Jon,

after changing 2 regulators in my Dakota (1 front driver and 1 rear passenger), I can tell you that if the cables have "come off the track", then the regulator needs to be replaced. There are several Delrin clips/fasteners that hold the cable system in place. When one of these cracks/breaks, the cables come off the regulator assembly, and there's just no way to "re-route" since the mechanism is broken. I guess there is a small chance that one end of the cable just slipped out of the slotted holder, but I'm betting that one (or more) of the plastic clips have broken, and you need to change out the entire regulator. There not too hard to do, and you can by replacement aftermarket ones for about a $100. The first one I had replaced was done by a dealership, and it cost me $425.87....most of which was labor. Hope this helps.

Driver side window came off track


it is not off track. the grinding or metal scratching noise is from the window regulator cable that has broke off from the plastic idler pulley on regulator and is now wound up on the motor. you need a new window regulator.

I need to replace the rear passenger side window regulator in my 2001 dakota quad cab. I have taken it apart, removed the old regulator, and propped up the window


I had the same problem and found the broken lower cable guide laying in the bottom of the door. I drilled 2 holes thru the lower end of the regulator and remounted the guide with 2 screws. I then restrung the cable over the guides (not easy to do) and reinstalled the regulator in the door. It works like new.

The driver side front window just slides down. The motor works and can see the cable go up and down.


if this is a cable drive system then the whole regulator assembly will have to be replaced. there is no real repair to do and these will drive you crazy trying to repair them.

1. check fuses
2. if motors are good, more likely it is, it will be the windows regulator or windows switch, both tend to wear out the contacts over times. the windows switch pretty expensive, its run about 123.00 buck each and the regulator run 59.00 each. more likely will be regulator. if it not the windows switch is good. hope that help some, both not hard to replace and not easy.

Cable on the power window motor is off track


You need to replace the regulator. When cable comes off track it usually binds up in the motor. motor, and cable all come preassembled as one unit, known as the regulator.

Window wont roll up


Hi my name is Allen!

When the window falls down it is because the cable for the regulator and motor broke. The only fix is a new regulator/motor assembly from the dealership, or a good one from the junk yard if you can find one.

For further asistance you may reach me at FixYa!
