WJ Drivers Window Inop
I have a 2000 WJ Laredo with the 4.7L. It's been a great vehicle, I bought it new in Nov '99 and have had very few problems over its 175,000 miles. I came back from being out of town for the week last night and headed out of the airport parking lot. When I went to put the drivers window down to pay the parking lot fee, the window wouldn't go down.
Clearly it was frozen as the weather in Denver had been pretty frigid. Of course this has happened in the past with no issues, once it thawed it would work fine. This time, no go. There was a little louder clunk that happened the first time I pressed the down button.
So now, there is a noise I assume is the motor and the glass moves just a little bit, but then just a whirring motor noise and no movement up or down. It seems something broke and I'm in the process of reviewing the manual and will pull off the door panel when it warms up next week some time.
I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced the same issue and if it sounds more like the motor assembly or the window regulator.
