clipdan: now it looks like ANOTHER window has failed on my wife's Liberty (the one
shown in this video)... Looks like I'll now be doing this repair on the
LEFT REAR Window. Followup video to follow, once it gets a little warmer.
I've got it taped for now. =(
usgaul12: It's a good video but it can barely be heard
cdawg4391: front passenger side. When the window goes down (from being completely up),
it free falls for about 2 inches before slowing to "regulator" speed. Weird
as I've been reading up on this and most others seem to have the issue
where the window just falls inside the door and won't come back up. Mine
also makes a loud grinding noise going down. Any thoughts on what it may
George Smith: Great video, as an FYI i ordered the Dorman 748-568 Passenger rear complete
replacement, Motor and all. This comes from Amazon.com with free delivery
for $88.59. It arrived in 4 days. And it is the new version with the metal
drive lug on the worm gear drive cable. You can't beat this. It is
identical and top quality. I have the old one out, it was a project,
Tomorrow I will try to install this new one. This video saved my life and
money. Thanks so much.
clipdan: no problem. I enjoy helping people through my videos. Good Luck... Watch
the video, I recommend a replacement company.
clipdan: @usgaul12 ---> thank you. yes, the audio is low. that is my fault... I do
not have an external mic to use, I thought that the internal mic on my
camera would be good enough... Not so much... If I continue these self help
video, I do need to try and get an external mic device to help... thank you
for the comment.
usgaul12: @clipdan: You're welcome pal, I'm myself trying to detach the crystal from
the (supposedly) faulty piece in my '06 rear window but still haven’t
managed. The only thing I know from a couple days ago is that something
must be broken because the crystal went all the way down by itself and the
regulator wouldn’t move it up again, though the motor produces some noise
clipdan: @nymcscott -> glad to hear. Please let me know how you did, or if you need
help in a certain stage of the repair... Take your time, and you guys
should do fine... Good luck, and dont forget to let me know...
clipdan: I cant say I blame you. This is something that should of been addressed
long ago. But even a replacement would break again. Bad design... Unless of
course they replaced it with a metal one, as I did shown in these videos.
Thanks for checking in.
cdawg4391: Hey Dan....is the window regulator the device upon which the base of the
window sits? If so, mine may be diff. than yours.....I have a 2003 Libby,
and that "base" is metal whereas it looks like yours was plastic. It
doesn't look l ike anything sheared off of that piece (no sharp edges
indicating broken plastic) so I wonder if you may think another component
might be broken. The window will go up and down but when it goes down the
worm cable comes up through the door panel on the front pass.
clipdan: @tbbaot I paid $90.00 (ONCE) - steigerperformance[DOT]com... Make sure you
tell them left or right side,as well as front or back., I created the
Driveway Mechanic Video Series.to help people with the same problems that
need fixing. If you have a broken one as well. Good luck... =)
cdawg4391: Had a deal where I was puting down the passenger side window and heard a
pop - next thing, I see the cable coming up through my door pnel up against
the window! Ever had that happen?
Alexandra ARHISU: i ordered my parts two front windows and the left back one, we got them so
tomorrow we fix our windows, i saw your video after it happened to us so
they are all taped up looks ugly lol but so happy we are doing it finallly
ill let you know how it went.
InoRealLife .: our liberty's glass makes a very loud squeeqy noise, will this help? thanks.
tbbaot: It's useless to replace the Jeep Liberty regulators and other window parts
because the parts are the same cheap plastic and they fail over and over.
Liquidplumber74: I will never buy anything from Chrysler again because of our 06 liberty
than we traded for a 2013 crv. Jeep never recalled this and told me they
were at the mercy of their parts supplier.
clipdan: the pop you heard was most liely that plastic bracket finally letting go.
Where the cable is threaded into it. Once broken the window motor fed you
cable up through. YEs, I am sure that is it...
clipdan: @nymcscott -> I wish my boss gave me a $500.00 bonus... If nothing else,
good luck with the repair. How many windows do not work on your vehicle? So
far, my wife's window is still fine (to date, from 05-11 to 11-11), and
still going... The part that I replaced, is way better than the plastic
factory one... Good luck, let me know how you guys made out... If nothing
else, I say get by Christmas, if you can... and use your tax refund to help
buy your parts needed for the repair...
clipdan: Glad the video helped.
clipdan: @whywidehide -> thats great W.W.H. - Please come back here to comment post
repair and let us know how you did. Do you have a link for that part to
share? I am glad this video helped you out along the way. The repair is all
you, I only help nudge people or perhaps answer any unclear questions.
Thanks for watching. Good luck.
clipdan: Yeah, I will need a new camera for this problem. The one I am currently
using doesnt have a mic in on record.
clipdan: yes replacing the broken piece only would work. In fact thats what I did in
this video. Watch parts 1 and 2.
clipdan: Hello Cdawg. A window regulator is electric or manual, and it basically
controls the up and down motions of a side window on a car. Basically the
entire assembly. Some folks will call them window regulators, window
guides, or window tracks. A manual would have a large crank gear in lieu of
an electric motor. Think of the term regulator, because it will regulate
the amount of windflow coming from a window, full opened/closed or
somewhere in between... Hope that helps your understanding.
Alexandra ARHISU: im gonna convince my husband we need to do this we are so broke we have no
money left his boss hates him so he got 500 dollar bonus we barely have
enough for christmas but i think we can do this following your video. i
need to order the parts though. Thank you so much for this its awsome!
jjkrueger44: oh sorry didn't get that far yet... Thanks for the great videos and the
George Smith: This is for the right rear 06 Liberty window regulator, the new design with
metal drive clip is available from AMAZON.com , simply go to Amazon.com and
in their search box type in "DORMAN 748-568, that will bring up the part.
Dorman also has all the other windows.
250maine: Thanks for the help. Took about 1 hour from start to finish .. now back to
clipdan: @tbbaot ---> Not True. I replaced the failed part in this video with a
METAL window bracket. Didnt you watch the rest of the install?
jjkrueger44: Would just replacing the broken piece work? The motor seems to be fine. I
found a "2002 - 2005 Jeep Liberty Power Window Regulator Repair Kit Rear
Door Pair" on AM-Autoparts. They also have a pair for the front doors as
