Rear Window Issues

Wed when I was driving home attempted to put the drivers side rear door glass all the back up when I heard a loud bang come from the door. I thought someone had struck the door with a rock until I looked back and noticed the window was down further then it initially was.
I pushed the lever to get the window to raise and alls I could hear was the motor noise and the window stayed 1/2 way down. Within a mile the window crept all the way down and stayed that way until I got home. Once I did I used a pair of needle nose pliers to raise the glass all the way up and once I did it slowly crept back down. For now I have several small pieces of wood acting as wedges to keep the window upright.
I have an 04 Liberty Sport with 154,000 on it. A few years ago the stationary glass on that door was broken and had to be replaced. Can someone let me know what they think the issue could be? I plan to go out and take the panel off soon and try to see what the heck happened.
A buddy of mine told me he has a friend with a Wrangler that had the same issues when his glass got hot and it was just a matter of getting the glass back onto the track.
Thanks in advance, Sam

You have experienced a window lift/track failure. Not uncommon, many owners have experienced the same issue - multiple times. Some owners of certain year models were being reimbursed by Jeep for this. I do not remember which years being covered.

I called the dealership where I bought mine from and was told there is recall for this issue. But, the guy I spoke to wasn't the service manager I usually deal with so I will call back Mon.

Steiger is where I am going to order the parts from, not bad, around $95 per side.
