The vehicle having this issue was a 2004 Jeep Liberty. On 01/02/12 my passenger front window fell down and would not roll back up. Now, since that time, on 03/16/12 my driver's side window has fell down too and will not roll up. Within, two months both of my windows have failed. There is some kind of malfunction going on here. Does this mean in four more months, that all of my windows will fail? something should be done about this, because obviously this is a problem that not just I am having. There are a lot of others having this same problem with their Jeep. Updated 04/02/12. This side/rear glass issue occurred Monday, Jan. 2, 2012.

#4 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2002 Jeep Liberty
The car is a 2002 Jeep Liberty. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 1J4GL58K82_. On approx the date entered, the left rear electric window glass dropped into door frame and would no longer operate. Investigation found that plastic clip on the end of the window regulator cable gets worn and breaks, and window becomes disconnected from regulator at this point. Very expensive for simple fix, cost over $100 for entire new regulator, as plastic clip is not available separately. Thankfully I am mechanically inclined and I was able to install it myself, as estimate from then daimler-Chrysler was over $300 for repair. Since that time, the other window regulator broke in the exact same fashion, and being the replacement part had gone up even further in cost, I taped window shut. Before I could afford to fix other window, the one I had previously repaired broke again in an identical fashion. All three rear window regulators, both factory originals, and one factory replacement, broke within 3 years. Both windows were then taped up, as I wasn't about to buy well over $200 worth of trouble prone replacement parts only to have situation take place yet again. Thankfully, an aftermarket source now sells metal parts to replace defective, wear prone parts supplied by Chrysler-Jeep. It cost $100 to further repair both windows with aftermarket metal parts, and I have experienced no trouble since. Incorrectly designed/manufactured parts supplied by Chrysler-Jeep are definitely the issue here. It was Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2006 when this side/rear glass issue happened.

#8 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2006 Jeep Liberty
The vehicle involved was a 2006 Jeep Liberty. This is to report a faulty part on the window regulator. Three times mine has failed. Twice the left rear window has fallen into the door due to a regulator which was faulty and on the third occasion is was the right rear window that fell. Lucky for me, I was stopped when my windows dropped. When the part fails, the glass just falls down into the door. The cost to repair is $750. At the dealer because you must replace the whole regulator, you cannot replace just the fifty cent part. The alternative which most people do is to tape the window glass up which obscures the vision and is a safety hazard. This is a chronic problem that Jeep has known about for years. Imagine a mother driving with a child in the rear car seat in a heavy rainstorm and passes a tractor trailer at normal speeds. The window fails and falls. You then have heavy rain and debris coming into the rear window. The mother panics as she is concerned about what is happening to her child and veers into the tractor trailer. These vehicles need to be recalled immediately. The faulty plastic slides need to be redesigned and replaced with a metal slide with neoprene guides. I am not the only one with this problem - a simple internet search will yield hundreds of other individuals who have encountered this problem. I have saved the parts from my door if you wish to inspect them. This issue happened on Sep. 1, 2009.
#9 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2005 Jeep Liberty
The vehicle was a 2005 Jeep Liberty. The rear window on the driver's side fell down for no reason. I pressed the switch it did not move. I pulled it up by hand but it would fall right down. I took it to the Jeep dealer thinking it would be under warranty but they charged me. Two years later it happened again on the same window. I paid for it again. Since, they fixed it last time they scratched the glass and I cannot open the door from the inside. I am single and 99. 9% of the time I am the only one in the car. The window does not even get used and it fails. The window was not used once since the second replacement and it has failed again for a third time. The second time I was at the Jeep dealer to have it replaced the service advisor even said to me that this happens all the time on these vehicles. Well, then why isn't something being done about it? when you read the internet you will find that all Jeep Liberty's from 2002 to 2007 have this problem. The part was not engineered correctly and does not hold up. The part is clearly defective. You will be driving along and all of a sudden you hear air rushing in behind you. Chrysler needs to be forced to fix it because otherwise, they will not do it. They knowingly sold a defective product which is fraud and it is illegal. Your Jeep is never secure and is unsafe. I travel into the city every day and have to fear that when I walk out my window will be down and I will be robbed or someone can just reach in and get in my car because the window is down and kill me, attack me or rob me. This does not even include the numerous other problems: belt tensioner defective, ball joints bad, rear window not working, roof rack lose and faded, windshield leaking, electrical issue, horn stuck on just to name some of the problems I have experienced. Every year or two Jeep expects you to pay hundreds of dollars to have a defective part fixed. It was Oct. 1, 2007 when this side/rear glass issue occurred.
#10 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2002 Jeep Liberty

#11 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2007 Jeep Liberty
Jeep Liberty, 2007 - rear windows fall into door panel while driving or parked. My children sit in the back seat of my vehicle when moving and my daughter had her fingers pulled into the window pocket. Another time the weather was cold with hard rain and the window just dropped, I'm in traffic, I was distracted by incident and it took several minutes to pull off the highway and cover the open window area with a blanket and again there were children in the back seat. The defective regulator on the Jeep Liberty and other Jeeps has been reported numerous times by consumers who have had to replace the equipment in the same vehicle 4 or more times. Chrysler/Jeep refuses to correct the problem which results in the window glass falling into the door, leaving windows open while children or animals are in the vehicle and leaves the vehicle vulnerable if locked and parked anywhere. This failure accurs in over 75 % of the Jeep vehicles and once the part is replaced can fail again within a month. This is not just an expensive inconvenience it does effect the safety of individuals in the vehicle when moving and when vehicle is parked and locked. This issue happened on 07/26/2009.
#12 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2007 Jeep Liberty
The VIN of this Liberty is 1J4GL48K97_. 2007 Jeep Liberty--mileage 26100---left rear window falls down in door---doesn't go up---told $727 for replacement of regulator and glass---poor design--if someone in back seat---could of been hit by flying objects. It was Jun. 18, 2010 when this side/rear glass issue occurred.
#13 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2007 Jeep Liberty
The VIN of this vehicle was 1J4GL48K47_. I own a 2007 Jeep Liberty. In April 2010, I had to have the power window regulator, motor and glass (nothing wrong with the glass) for the driver side front and rear replaced. Of course the warranty expired. I was told that the regulator failed but I had to have all replaced. I was told that the design for the 2007 regulator was changed and that is why I had to have all replaced at a cost of $425. 00 each. Now the passenger side rear window just dropped down into the door without warning (Aug 25,2010). I assume that I will have to have the regulator, motor and glass (again nothing wrong with the glass) replaced at another $425. 00. I am just waiting for the front passenger side glass to fall into the door and have to replace that also. I have searched the internet and found thousands of complaints regarding this issue. Some have had to have the regulators replaced three or four times. Yet there is no recall. This is a disgrace. It is totally unfair for the owners of these vehicles to have to continue to shell out this kind of money over and over again when there is clearly a design flaw. How many complaints will it take before they issue a recall? [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6).

Component: visibility:power window devices and controls details: the window regulator in my Jeep goes out it is a manufacturer defect in the making of the vehicle, it has already happened to my vehicle 3 times in 8 months and gm refuses to recall it. It is a safety issue because the window just fall out of trac k. Cost is not affordable each time @ $500 to fix it.

#17 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2007 Jeep Liberty
The car is a 2007 Jeep Liberty. Replaced the rear power window regulator and glass for the second time this year. They assured me it would not happen again after the first repair since they used am improved part. Dealer states this time Jeep knows of this defect but "can't find a supplier with decent parts" so people are forced to make the same repair over and over. When this happens, I am unable to close the window, causing a safety issue when driving and parking the vehicle in lots. This side/rear glass problem happened on November 10, 2009.
#18 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2007 Jeep Liberty
The car was a 2007 Jeep Liberty. Driver's window began to slide almost immediately after purchase in Dec. 2008. Back passenger window stuck about 2 inches down and then suddenly came crashing down while I was on the interstate. It nearly scared me to death! the back window is in the door. We try to keep the window covered and are not currently driving the vehicle because we can't afford the repair right now. Occasionally the wind pulls the protective covering off, and we have rain stains on the seats as a result. My understanding is they no longer make this regulator because it is faulty, so the glass have to be replaced also with the new regulator at a cost of about $500 per window. This is crazy for the consumer to have to pay for a faulty product. I have contacted Jeep, but they do not seem concerned. I am shocked and saddened to find so many complaints about the same thing and for Chrysler/Jeep not be held accountable. It was 11/23/09 when this side/rear glass issue happened.
#19 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2007 Jeep Liberty
My 2007 Jeep Liberty has yet again had another window break due to their faulty brackets installed by Jeep. This is the second window of mine to go out in less than a year. At first the window was having trouble go up by itself and then yesterday it made a popping noise and the glass fell down completely and will not come back up. This should be recalled there is no doubt about it. This side/rear glass issue occurred 10/03/2010.
#20 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2006 Jeep Liberty
The vehicle was a 2006 Jeep Liberty 4x4. The window regulator on the front driver's side window suddenly broke while driving as I was rolling up the window, causing the window to crack while halfway down. This is the second time this has happened. Last time it was on a left, rear window. I brought it to tyson's Jeep in virginia and they said it is a known problem but not part of a recall. They replaced the regulator and the glass, costing me approximately $500. The parts were available, but are of the same design, so the problem could reoccur at any time. This side/rear glass problem happened on Monday, December 7, 2009.
#21 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2006 Jeep Liberty
The vehicle involved was a 2006 Jeep Liberty 4x4. I was driving on 295 in baltimore, MD during rush hour when my driver's side rear window started to fall. This is the 6th time I have had a regulator problem, second time for this window. I almost hit the car in front of my because it caught me off guard. I went to the dealership and sure enough its the regulator except this time they aren't just replacing the regulator but the glass too. I really wanted another Jeep but since I keep having the same problem that isn't going to happen. Jeep needs to issue a recall, everyone in the dealership said this is an ongoing problem. If they know it is a problem; they need to do something about it. They need to do something before someone dies from it. It is extremely distracting. It also reduces your visibility when you have to duct tape your window shut. This issue happened on Tuesday, March 16, 2010.
#22 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2006 Jeep Liberty
The car is a 2006 Jeep Liberty 4x4. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1J4GL48K86_.

Several items in my Jeep were covered in snow/ice including paperwork and official forms for for my work that has since been ruined due to water damage. This is the 5th time I have experienced issues with window regulators in this same vehicle. In August of 2009, the rear dirver's side window had to be replaced. At this time Chrysler told me that defective parts were being used in Libertys but there is no recall and the replacement option was to replace the entire glass and regulator. In December of 2009, the drivers side window began rolling up crooked and was replaced. The passenger window is yet to be replaced as I am waiting on a response from Chrysler to see if they will cover the $500. 00 repair cost since this is a recurring problem. The failure date was Saturday, Mar. 20, 2010.

The vehicle involved is a 2006 Jeep Liberty 4x4. I was driving home with my wife and 7 month old baby in her car seat while driving, all of a sudden the rear passenger side window completely drops inside the door. I'm very upset about this due to if the window would've broke or shattered it could've hurt our new born baby. I have since looked online and have seen thousands of similar cases with the same problem (2006 Jeep Liberty). I don't know why Chrysler has not recalled this problem with the windows when soo many people are having the same re-occurring issue. Im stuck now with a bill from the dealer due to the warranty does not cover the whole cost of the repair which they explained that I need to replace the motor, window regulator also the glass. Keep in mind I jus purchased this vehicle in January 4 months later im already having problems. This side/rear glass problem happened on May 20, 2010.

I took it in for repairs. Since then (16 months later), I have been in the repair shop for this exact reason 5 more times. My parents have the exact same vehicle, same year, and they are on their 6th window as well. After talking to the repair shops we both go to, we have found that this is a common occurrence. Jeep has been contacted by us and by others. They are well aware of the problem. I believe that this is a safety issue on so many levels because the vehicle is vulnerable if the window is not up.

#32 - Side/rear Glass problem of the 2005 Jeep Liberty
The vehicle was a 2005 Jeep Liberty. I'm aware that this is a common defect, but perhaps there's strength in numbers. I've had no problems with my Jeep up until a few weeks ago, it had been parked for about a month when one day I noticed that the rear drivers side window was down about 3-4". I turned on the vehicle to discover that the regulator appeared to have gone out. This is especially odd considering the window's been used maybe 3 times since the vehicle was new. Now, since I refuse to pay $300 to fix something that the manufacturer has admitted to being defective (I. E. Their fault), I'm stuck dealing with a visual impairment and security issue that could lead to ether an accident or the theft of the vehicle itself. When driving, as I often do in my vehicle, especially on the interstate, I need to be able to look over my shoulder and quickly determine at times whether or not it is safe for me to move over. The fact that the window falls at the slightest bump, not all the way down, but just enough so that the top of the glass presents a visual impairment that causes me to have to unnecessarily maneuver to try and see. There is also the matter of occupant exposure to the elements and the fact that since the window will fall for no apparent reason any time, day or night, in use or not, this presents a wonderful target for would-be thieves and burglars. It was 09/25/09 when this side/rear glass issue happened.
