Driver door problems

The window on my drivers side door won't stay up and the crank won't work, thinking it came off the track.. Having to use a wedge in the window to keep it up. Any way to take the inside of the panel off or am I stuck getting a new door? Thanks!

No it's all repairable.

Pull the handles and the door panel off

Drop window down carefully

You should see how it is attached at the bottom

If it is just off the track get the vent window assembly out if the way

Top side of hard door on the frame work screws for the vent window remove them and one lower on the door frame holds the lower end of the framework for the vent window and window track

From there wrestle it back in place


But be in a good mood not in a hurry and have lots if patience

check out the following:

Go to the home page and click on jeep service manuals; follow drop down selsction to Body Components. scan from pages 178 through 185 of the 211 and you will see the method to disasemble the door panel and parts for the window.
