Last week the window on my Jeep started making a horrible noise! A violent grinding sound that would make the most callous of people cringe! Here's how to fix it!

Step 1: start removing the door panel

Undo all the screws
<p>If it's just the worm screw that is broken, and the motor is running fine, this is a brilliant, cheap and easy fix: <a href="http://www.lunghd.com/Tech_Articles/Body/XJ_Power_Window_Regulator_Fix.htm" rel="nofollow">http://www.lunghd.com/Tech_Articles/Body/XJ_Power_Window_Regulator_Fix.htm</a></p><p>I used about 1 hour for the whole process, but almost 3 days before I found the link to this genius walkthrough :-)</p><p>The cotton pin is approx 2,2mm, and I used a 2,5 mm drill for the holes.</p>
<p>Nice write up. I just did it today! One suggestion would be to tape the window up in the door frame after unbolting it from the regulator. This eliminates taking out the sweeper and pulling the window. Thanks for the assistance so I didn't miss any steps. :)</p>
Thank you so much for posting this information and photos on how to fix your car window. The passenger window on my jeep has been broken for a couple of months now and it's very annoying. I have been looking for someone who does <a href="http://www.pellanewengland.com/ForTheHomeowner/Windows.aspx" rel="nofollow">replacement windows in maine</a>, but now I can just do it myself.

Thanks for all the tips and the pictures! I was hoping I would look at this and be able to change my window on my own, but I think it just confirmed that I should find someone who knows how to <a href="http://www.progressglass.ca" rel="nofollow">replace windows in Edmonton</a>, haha. Thanks again though.
I have found that if I had to do it over again I'd probably try to find better quality parts. The regulator I put on my jeep was an inexpensive aftermarket one. I'm not thrilled with its performance.
