Question about 2003 Dodge Caravan

Replacing window regulator

Hi. We have a 2003 Dodge Caravan & the driver's side power window stopped working. Took it to mechanic to troubleshoot & they said we need a new regulator & motor which would cost 400 dollars to replace. I have purchased the appropriate regulator & motor at a parts store and am attempting to replace it myself to save money. I have removed the door panel, vapor barrier & all the bolts attaching the regulator to the door, but now I am having trouble detaching the window from the regulator. It looks like the window is fastened to the window with 2 plastic clips. My question is there a tool or method to remove the glass from the regulator? I have tried pulling the glass, wiggling the glass out & prying off the plastic clips with a screwdriver, but these did not work. Appreciate any input. Thanks! James

You can buy the plastic clips from the dealer, break the old ones, there is no tool that I remember using, in fact I don't remember having any problem, are you sure the regulator is at fault? why not just replace the motor?

I'm having the same problem. The window is "stuck" in the closed posistion which makes it very difficult to figure out how to detatch the window from the regulator rail. If you say the new regulator's clips will go right onto the glass, how? Do they clip on or something?

Right front door window will not roll down.

Assuming it's electric, it could be the switch or the window motor/regulator. If possible try swapping the driver's side switch to the passenger's. If it works - switch, if it doesn't, most likely the window motor, located behind the door panel.

Probably motor and regulator, if you tried both switches on driver and passenger side suspect both window motor and regulator on passenger side sometimes while pressing the switch on the passenger side bang on the door panel inside and sometimes it may move if it does then suspect only the window motor.

sounds like the window regulator. this is the cable mechanism that the motor runs to pull the window up and down. sometimes after time the cables fray and break or get tangled. need to remove inner door panel to replace, and is usually sold as a set, regulator and motor together.

2003 Dodge caravan. Driver power window stopped working.

There are two screws at the bottom of door panel. The panel...pull from bottom first out toward you. work your way up the edges. When door panel is lose lift up and the top will come lose. The window regulator and motor are as one. Check fuse block under hood on driver side.
