Window Regulators

Im getting quoted $350 for a window regulator on my 2004 jeep liberty. I was tld the part was $199. When I look on line it seems you can get the part for a lot less. this is not a dealership quote. Can anyone tell me if this is a fair price? It is the back/passenger window. Since I have owned the car that window has probably been used 5x- no kidding. thanks in advance for your insight.

You can pick up the part from rockauto for $80.00
My wife and I installed it, wasn't hard at all. 2006 drivers side rear window.
Don't let the dealer inspect it, telling you it could be a .25 pin. We made that mistake for $127.00 for nothing.

Picked my regulator up out of a junkyard (car-part.com)...paid $50. Very easy to put in.

Junkyard regulators are likely to be the badly-designed factory ones that will fail sooner or later (I've had three fail in my KJ, including a factory one replaced under warranty by the dealership that failed again six months later). For another $30 on top of what you paid, you could have a brand-new regulator with improved design that addresses the inherent weakness in the factory ones.

My passenger side rear window had the same problem and with a lot of searching I found a few options. Since Chrysler doesn't see this as a safety issue, they'll be no recalls (not yet). So the problem is the regulator and from reading so many many complaints of people getting new ones put in and only after maybe 6 months it'll go out again. I didn't want to pay $300+++ for an inferior part and I wasn't going to drive around like that and wait until Chrysler stepped up to the plate. So I found the best solution for less than .25 cents and so easy to do. But the window has to stay closed until a better part is produced. Here is the link to the web page with the step by step instructions...

This is the best solution.

They are not cheap, like $100 for each window. I did the passenger rear. Really nice craftsmanship on the part. Great instructions. I will do all of the windows and probably before they break.

I ordered my repair parts (I've had to do 3 so far on my '06) from http://www.autoandart.com. Well built parts and a lot less $$$ than SteigerPerfoirmance (who I'm sure also make good stuff)

Steiger's stuff is made by Steiger in the US. They developed the original repair brackets for the KJ regulators, and inevitably there are now competitors getting copies made in China which they can sell much more cheaply than Steiger can.

And...? I was pointing out a place to buy replacement parts that are better than the OEM parts and for less money. People have the right to know whats out there and make an informed decision.

I used the same. I just did one on my pass rear. I was surprised at the quality and strength. I expected much less but thought I'd try it. It is a nice well made part that fit perfectly. It was very easy to do. I did the trick of bending the end tab down on the slide to put it on then bent it back once on rather than drill out the rivet. Much easier and faster and you can't tell I did it.

It really is an easy fix and cheap (can be). Simple tools and 1/2 if skilled or maybe hour or two if you're not. Just take your time and try it. It is pretty easy and there are tons of YouTube videos that walk you through it.
