    Common...

    Just did one the other day on a Durango..same setup

    Part on the window regulator broke.You should find a plastic piece or 2 in the bottom of the door.
    Window regulator has to be replaced.
    Comes as one complete unit including motor.
    Not to hard to replace

    Follow instructions on link below...'Cept you dont need to remove the glass from the door.You can unbolt it from the regulator and then raise it up fully and support it with a block of wood while you remove and install regulator
    Remember ,when you remove the door trim panel ,take out all the screws and then lift up and out on the panel.It has plastic hooks that will break off if you pull directly out on it.
    and make sure to disconnect the inside handle rod from the handle.You'll see it when you get there.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the info. Two things. First, I could find nothing related to power windows on the link you included. Probably just me. Second, Autozone has only window regulators without motor, Should I look elsewhere and must I replace motor along with regulator?

    Thanks again. The link worked and I printed the instructions. I may be wrong but it looks to me like the regulators shown on the website you sent me are manual as as opposed to power. At least I see no motor. Agree??

  • docj 03/12/09 9:14 pm PST

    Click it again and scroll down to the power regulators.

    Got it. Have ordered the regulator and will let you know how it goes. Thanks a lot!

    Doc, I hope you are still out there. I received the regulator today and it is identical to the one I took out. Put the new one in and guess what. Does exactly what the old one did. Goes up fine when attached. It comes unattached about half way down. The new regulator did not come with replacement glass holder channels so I used the ones I had. These are what comes unattached from the glass. Acts like they are not tight enough to the glass or the glass is binding on the way down. I have thought about crimping them or shoving something between glass and channel to tighten them up. Any thoughts?

  • pvt1 03/20/09 2:44 pm PST

    All I needed to do was re-epoxy the glass channels at the bottom of the window back to the glass. Problem solved, I hope!
