Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. The front passenger window made a loud noise and then went down on it's own. I was unable to get it back up without taking the door panel apart and then pushing it up manually. Now it won't stay up on it's own, I had to tape it. Took it to the dealer and they said it needed a new motor/regulator and clips, they wanted $500 and I said forget it. Any ideas what happened and what I could do to fix it myself?

Unfortunately the dealership is right in this case,the regulator has plastic components in it to guide the window and to hold pressure against it while its up if those parts happen to strip or break you will have the problem you faced with now,but $500?'s they must be smoking something good call or go on line to or call them at 1-800-366-2070,they are in Spokane Washington.These guys are great I have had to buy a lot of different parts for my vehicles through them and every time they have been absolutely great to talk to,their prices were very good and shipping was next to nothing I live in Montana and they had all of the parts I needed to me in two days.The regulator and parts are very easy to replace in that vehicle,once you remove the door panel its just a couple of 10mm bolts,if you have never done one before don't worry about it if you take your time and watch how your removing the parts it will be an easy reinstall,and much cheaper then taking it in to have it done.I wish you luck, hope this helped

Loud whistling noise while driving.

I think there is a TSB on that problem. If the wind is coming from the passanger side then roll the window all the way down. Put a 2X4 in the door jam. So the 2X4 will be inbetween the the door and the jeep. Push on the top of the door like you are trying to close the door. What you are trying to do and slightly bend the top of the door toward the jeep. But just do it a little at a time.

Loud whistling noise while driving.

Does the noise sound as though it is coming from either the front or rear axle and does the noise change as your speed increases. If so it sound as though your axle is whining requiring overhauled if really bad.Common problem
