As I was driving today my passenger window slowly started sliding down by itself. The switch wouldn't work so I tried to pull it up with my hands, when I let it go it completely fell all the way in and won't move, do you think it just fell off the track? I can hear it moving inside the door when I press the switch for it
Alright thanks, that's probably $30-$40 if I'm not mistaken
Uh, no. Dorman ones (these are what you want, not the ebay crap) will run you around $100.00 ea complete from Auto Zone, Adavance Auto etc. I have replaced most of mine in my WJ. Word of advice: Slamming your doors hard is the main culprit of this type of failure. I close mine easy now and have not had any issues since.

99 times out of a hundred, its just the regulator, NOT the motor that needs to be replaced. Local auto parts stores usually only carry ones with the motor included and usually for over $100. Rockauto.com has complete units, with motors for around $60. Or without motors for around $30.
What you can do while you wait for shipping is take the door panel off, take the old regulator out, pull the window up and put a couple bolts in the holes along the top where the panel snaps in. They are at perfect height to hold the window up with out it bouncing around.

I was able to fix mine for free (the rear passenger window anyways). There's a fix I found where you use a piece of metal hanger wire to secure the window regulator cable (bc it's the plastic anchor that breaks). It's been working perfectly for over a year now. If money's no issue then go ahead and buy new...but may not be necessary. My 2 cents.
