Can anyone point me in the right direction to replace or repair my manual window regulator, drivers side? I can not for the life of me either find the part online to replace it or even any information for repair. Every search I do comes up with damn power windows. What do I have the only XJ with manual windows or something? Anyway, it works and all, but I can not roll the window all the way down or else it will not come back up. All other windows work perfect except for the drivers. Just get the nice clickity click due to worn teeth. I have seen at auto parts stores where you can get the GM style plastic toothed strip and cut to fit but I am not sure if that would be able to be fitted into the Jeep track. Does anyone know if there is something out there I can get to fix this, or know where to get a regulator assembly to replace mine? Granted I only paid $250 for this beast so I do not want to spend a boatload to fix a window.
Are you sure its worn teeth?
My window only go's halfway down and then stops, if you try to take it further, it won't move but will no longer come back up without pulling it up about an inch before it catches again.
The lower third of the 'fuzzy worm' regulator strip was rusted off.
I got a replacement at the pick yard for $2 but drilling out the rivets in the field didn't work so well! (ran 2 battery's down) Ended up punching them out, which in my case was easier and faster than drilling. I just broke the window out rather than trying to get to the door glass stud, getting it out looks to be the hardest part of the job.
Have been staring at it for a few months now trying to figure out if I can somehow change out only the regulator strip, and avoid that door glass stud. Don't need to break my good window. So I cant tell how to reinstall yet.
BTW it came out the front access hole (speaker) easier.
I need to look at it again but I am assuming that the end of the strip has worn teeth since the handle just spins, I have to actually push the window up enough and turn the handle for it to re-engage. It happens when there is roughly less than an inch of glass above the weather strip.
