I have had this problem on half my windows. Stop buying more and more regulators. Just fix the problem. It took a lot of searching to find this site, but it was worth it. It fixes the issue, is much cheaper ($30), and stops it from happening again.

Installation: http://pocketlogger.com/?pid=jpw_install

Be careful, if you try to rack the window up and down when it fails you will damage some plastic internal parts of the regulator.

ALSO: try using a small c-clamp on the window slide to keep the window in place after it breaks. Keeps your jeep secure and prevents all the duct tape goo. Mine always seemed to break while on a road trip... LOL

Hope this helps someone......

Yeah I'm not sure this helps me since the part I broke is actually located in pic 4 of the instructions at the very bottom. My window stays up, it just wont go back up. Good read though

Re: I'm an idot for doing this now I need advice...

ok going to get at this shortly. Questions:

Any tips/tricks to help in removing the motor/regulator assembly itself?
Any tips/tricks to help remove the weather stripping around the glass?
Any tips/tricks to removing the glass? Is this necessary?

Probably most important: What position should the window be in prior to starting this? Right now its about 95% up.

Equally as important: Tips on making sure things align properly when putting it together?

Thanks!!!

Yep, just be careful with the glass I was afraid I was going to drop it or crack it. The weatherstripping was a little tricky to get back in, but yes, finesse is key.

Re: I'm an idot for doing this now I need advice...

Happy to report that it took me all of 25 mins to complete this work and the window is as good as new! I just followed the instructions in the video, modified a few steps to my own personal taste that I felt made life easier and all is back to normal with the WJ. Whatever that means. LOL

Thanks guys!

BTW, i did not remove the window or the weather stripping.

Glad to hear that all went well! I will have to check out that video in case it happens again on mine, I followed instructions from my Haynes manual which said to remove the weatherstripping.
