Help-Window fell off track

My driver's side power window appears to have slipped off track (window is 1 inch down. Won't go up or down, but motor is still working). Is this a do it yourself fix, or difficult enough for the dealer? Anybody been through this?

This is a do it your self in my mind, all you need to do is remove the plastic door panel, disconnect the control wires for the power options so that the door panel is out of your way, peel back some plastic (do this very carefully so as not to damage it too much) and you have little port holes that you can look and access it through. When you are finished simply reveres what you did to take it apart to put it back together.

This happened to me about a year ago when I had my jeep 96 GC detailed they left some residue on the passenger window that glued the window shut. When I put the window down it pulled off of the clips that hold it on the suspension, for lack of a better term.

The hardest thing to do was to get the window back into the little clippie, the metal was very taught, and took me and a buddy to spread and put the window into it. I would say this mite be about a 1.5 - 2 beer job.

Hope this helps ya

Great. And I've got a six pack at home just waiting to be drank. I think ice build up on the window might have pulled it off track when I tried to roll it down. I'll give it a shot tonight. Thanks!
