driver door window stuck

Hey everybody!

I have an '87 Grand Wagoneer and the other day my driver's side window got stuck down and now won't roll back up. The electric motor is running fine but it doesn't seem to be catching the window to push it back up. Any suggestions on what may be wrong, and more importantly how to fix it?

Sounds like your window flex track is broke. They are plastic and break from time to time. They cost under $30. You'll need to remove the door panel, remove the rail the track rides on and slide off the broken track. Apply some grease to the rail and the new track and install.

I've gotten pretty good at the flex rack replacement. I just unbolt the bracket for the motor and the track from the door and angle the top back about 30-45* and stick the top end out a hole in the door and pull the old track off and lube up the new one and slide it on. run it down a little ways and push the window switch down to suck the track back a little so the top little piece is out of the way. put the bracket and track back in position and run the screws in a few turns and push the widow up and put the top little piece in the widow lifter and run the window up and tighten down the screws. I've got this down to under 30 minutes. I do it this way because screwing with the greasy 1/4" bolts that hold the motor on the track are a pain in the butt and I've got big sausage fingers.

Semper Fi!
