I just wanted to chime in on this thread and thank you for posting this photo and idea of your window regulator fix. Thank you! When my wife told me our Jeep's rear passenger window fell down and wouldn't come back up, I started tearing it apart and found the problem. Found your fix and performed it just the same. Added the small holes for a small wiretie on each cable too, and the window now works great. All for a grand total of $0.00! Gotta love that!

Thanks again,

Tom

Thank you.

I really liked you idea as opposed to paying $100 that I didn't have. So when I went to put it back together I realized my cables had gotten all jammed up inside so I had to make new cables with a trip to lowe's and $6 later I had new cables nd then did the trick. The only problem was the first time I must have made the new cable 1/4 inch too short so after another trip to lowe's and $3 more bucks I got it all fixed up.

Thanks again!

No worries, finish up college and then you should be able to build a fresh new one with all that extra $$ you are going to earn!

My next project is going to be a good way to integrate my RV lights into the Jeep so I dont have to worry about stringing tow lights to the back of the jeep when towing. We towed it to Arizona last week and everything worked great with the exeception of using crappy tow lights so it will be nice to find a way to use the Jeeps brake and turn signal lights.

Anyone done this before?
