Rear window regulator broke

My rear passenger window regulator is broken. I took off the door panel and it looks like the window is attached to the top of the regulator. What gives? How do I replace that? I've been searching the 'net for a replacement with no luck. Can anyone help?

    O.K., but where to buy the thing other than the Dealer?
    Driver side rear, cable twisted/frayed/broke... motor & mechanism fine - need only cable! Housing comes apart to replace but nobody sells only the cable! So where can I buy the whole thing cheap? Or does anybody know where I can get the cable?

My 2002 Explorer had same problem. There was one metal rivet attaching the window to regulator. Drill it out and replace it with a new rivet or bolt and nut when you get the new regulator.

The regulator is attatched to the glass using the rivets through plastic disks. You need to drill them out before the glass can be removed.Save the plastic parts for reassembly.Good Luck

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.

Rear passenger side window stuck in down position


1) Yes you are right to think that it is the regulator.
2) You can repair this.

Remove the screws that hold the door panel on.
Remove the door panel. There are alot of clips on the door panel that just need to be pulled out with panel while removing.
Remove debris shield.(plastic piece between door panel and door.
The regulator will be visible at this point.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the regulator. Separate Glass from regulator. Some use clips some use bolts to hold the glass to the regulator.
Remove regulator attaching bolts.

Thats it just reverse the procedure for installation.

Left rear window stuck down. Hear motor working but doesn't lift the window.


For a Temp fix take it to a local glass tint shop and ask them to wire it up for you so people cant steal it. But the cable broke or the metal clamp that attaches to the bottom of the glass came off (if thats the case get some plumers goup or any other glue that stays flexible when it drys and try glueing it back to the bottom of the glass) I have a 97 Lincoln Presidental TC that happen to both my rear windows and I was able to glue the assimbaly back together for a quick fix, good luck

Passenger window will not go up or down


I had the same problem a few years ago except my window was stuck up. There is a cable inside the door that controls the window (not sure what it's called). Anyway, that cable was broken so the motor was working but not the window. Take the door panel off and you should be able to see the cable and if it's still attached correctly.
