Jeep Liberty Power Windows



  • It is with a heavy heart that I report that my last factory-installed regulator went out in my 2006 Liberty this week. All four windows have broken in the 2 years I've had broke just last month! Just like everyone else here, my dealership refuses to acknowledge that it's a problem. They suggested I rub Vaseline inside the rubber seals with a Q-tip to keep the rubber from gripping the window so hard. Seriously? I was also informed that they'll never be recalled because it's "not a safety risk." I really beg to differ with that.

    Reading everyone else's posts made my heart absolutely sink. It's hard to believe that Chrysler would turn a blind eye on such an obvious flaw in their product. Needless to say, when my warranty expires in 6 months I don't think I'll be worried anymore. That's because I am selling it.

    Good riddance, Jeep. Rhymes with CHEAP for a reason I guess.

    Oh brother Brokn, at least most of us got them to admit it is the regulator.
    Of course, last time they fixed mine and it went bad in one week, they tried to tell me they didnt see any problems.
    My husband stood there almost believing them, but I made them look and they finally replaced the regulator.

    I am sure that none of you would actually use Vaseline since it eventually dries to a tacky residue. If you must use something, use only silicone spray lubricant. Best method, with the window up use something like a smooth butter knife to create a gap between the inner seal and the glass and use the small tube that comes with the can. Spray downward past the inner seal while moving the gap along the seal all the way across - hopefully getting spray on moving parts inside the door. Do not spray the seal itself - I will just get on the glass.
  • i have a 2004 jeep liberty all of my windows just stopped moving and the fuse is good what could it be
  • I lease a 2007 Jeep Liberty. Leased it in April 2007. July 2007 I had to have the driver's side rear regulator replaced. June 2008 it went again and they replaced it. I just had the passenger front one replaced. You are right they do no acknowledge a problem. I spent 2 days on the phone with the complaint line. I did get them to agree to cover the rental I had but when I asked if they could send the info I needed to provide in an email it was like I was asking for too much. They are mailing me the info. I told them they would be hearing from me if I didn't get it. They said they wanted to know if it happened again. I told them no if but when! Said I was tired of having to walk around my jeep every time I got in to make sure all my windows were there. I told them I relize it wasn't an engine problem but windows are a safety issue and if it happened again I would take the steps to Lemon Law it!

    When my window went bad (oh the third one I think), I took it over and had it fixed and then it went bad right away again. They listened and talked among themselves and told my husband there was nothing wrong. I got on the phone with them, while he was there and insisted they do something. So they fixed the regulator and then said they did it just because they couldnt find anything to be wrong at all with the windows.

    Well, my warranty is apparently about to be up. I'm wondering from now on if I will be able to go to a repair shop, and explain that I know it is the regulator? That should be cheaper to fix and much easier than going to the dealership.
    I still want to trade this thing in, but in these economic times I dont think I can.
  • Believe me I understand about trading it in. I love the Liberty with the exception of the windows. I am leasing and am stuck with it until 2010. I am going to yell everytime it happens until they get tired of me. There is a compalint line you can call :lemon:

    I need help with my 2007 Jeep Liberty's drivers side door .
  • lsct86lsct86 Posts: 6
    Does anyone have directions on how to repair the front (power) and rear windows ?
    Like most you we can't afford the 300 to 400 dollars to repair them every other month .

    Thank You
  • I own a 2004 Jeep Liberty. Since 2004 I have had all 4 windows fall down. It's become where I know almost every other month, sometimes more, I will have a window fall. I have taken every approach with both my dealership and corporate, from trying to be nice and understandable, to being very upset and angry. Bottom line is I am at the mercy of my own car never knowing when a window could fall. It's happened during bad weather, it's happened with clients in my car, it's happened where something was stolen out of the back of my car. It's honestly a safety hazard for a woman driving by herself...The frustrating part is that I have had no other problems with my Liberty. It's been a great car, except for one very big problem. Jeep always gives me the reply of "well we fixed it". No, no they haven't if the problem keeps happening. They told me they get about 3 of those a day. In the state I live in, if you multiply that out by the # of dealers that's almost 750,000 cars with a defect, yet they won't fix it.
    Does anyone know if this can be fixed by non-Jeep people. And I mean a fix where it is not temporary, but an actual fix where it will never happen again? Jeep themselves have said it falls due to the fact that the part causing the issue is plastic in the window, and that with weather changes it expands and contracts which causes the window to slip. Please let me know if anyone knows if it can be fixed outside of Jeep? My worry is I have an extended warranty and I worry about taking it outside of Jeep and having them say that my warranty is now voided if they see someone else worked on it.
  • The only permanent fix I found was selling my Liberty and buying a Jetta. Good luck!

    A body shop or windshield exchange station will do this for you. At least these people will know how other vehicles are built and they will have the proper expertise. Jeep dealers have to obey to Jeep rules :(

    I have a 2007 Jeep Liberty and about a month ago the rear driver window would not stay up,or automatically move up. Last week the drivers window went out! I took it to the dealership where under the extended warranty.. ( I run up the miles with my job) I was able to pay the 100 deductible and get the two fixed. apparently the cables or regulators were the problem. I love the Jeep absolutely love it except for the windows, sadly I am never buying a Jeep again due to the same exact problem that I see MANY MANY people are having. I am preparing to get screwed financially by this problem due to the situation with my mileage.
  • I just traded my Liberty in for a new Honda CRV. The sad part is that I absolutely loved my Liberty, and had no other issues except for the windows. However that was a big issue, I was worried to have clients in my car and you could never leave things in your car since you never knew when it could fall down. Out of every SUV I have driven it was the most fun to drive,but too risky with the windows. Myself and 2 other people I know just got rid of them recently for the same issue and everyone said the same thing, if it wasn't for the windows we would have repurchased another Jeep. Now, none of us will ever purchase jeep/chrysler again. They really are shooting themselves in the foot for such a stupid issue-THAT COULD BE FIXED. Looks like for now I am a Honda girl, at least I know they typically produce good cars. Hopefully one day Jeep will get their act together. :(
  • join the crowd and make sure you pass the word on to your friends : DON"T EVER BUY A JEEP PRODUCT !!!!!!!
  • :lemon: :lemon: JEEP :lemon: :lemon: enough said ???
  • I love my jeep and I'm very sad to read that the power windows are an issue with so many liberties. I have a 2006 and for the past 2 years I've had issues with all 4 power windows not in I couldn't roll them down. I've also had one of them fall down.
    I just took it in a couple weeks ago and hopefully they have made a permenant fix. For anyone with this problem, they replaced a body control module that runs the electrical things in the jeep. Since I started complaining about this before the factory warranty expired, they replaced it for free and even threw in a free oil change.
    I am surprised that jeep hasn't recalled the liberties because I agree that the windows falling down or not rolling down is a safety concern. I don't know how recalls there somewhere for consumers to complain?
  • from what i have read the windows are not a safety hazard .
    I have seen jeep's going down the road with tape holding them up ( ours has tape on it too as we can't afford the 300 to 400 repair cost.
    I have written to Chrysler with NO satisfaction .
    Best thing you can do is to pass the word to family and friends NOT to buy ANY Chrysler product .
    This is not limited to just the Liberty's , ALL Jeep's are having the same issues .
    They are all :lemon: .
    If you have any luck please keep us all informed .
  • I have had the same issue for the last year. I bought my liberty used at around 15k miles and is now almost at the manf. warranty of 36k and I am taking it back to the dealership for them to replace the 4th window that has broken. I was told the first time I took it in that the previous owners had already taken it to them to fix one of the windows already. It is not surprising that these american car manufacturers need a bail out. They make crappy products. They should make sure they are producing quality cars if they are bailing them out. Which we know the money will just end up in the CEO's pockets. I will sell this and buy a Japanes car next time. I love my diesel liberty with the exception of this whole window fiasco. Maybe it is time for the Japanese to take over due to we americans have gotten too lazy to build good products and we are also too lazy to get up and fight these manufacturers that are trying to sell inferior products. The gentleman I deal with at the dealership doesn't seem to care how many times it has broken. I asked how long it would take to fix and he said just leave it with me for the day. They do not have loaner cars or will not pay for a rental. They said I need to call the manufacturer to see if they would even reimburse me for the rental. It is the busy holidays and I am running around in the rain with the drivers side window down getting wet. I finally got very upset and told him that I will come in and not wait the whole day like I have the last 3 times. After much persistence and letting him know I am not getting off the phone until we schedule a time that I am not wating all day he finally agreed to work on my car first. TO ALL LIBERTY DRIVERS WITH THIS WINDOW ISSUE BE SURE TO LET THE DEALERSHIPS KNOW HOW UPSET YOU ARE AND DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER. DO NOT LET THEM MAKE YOU WAIT.
    I am in Phoenix, AZ area. If anyone wants to join a picket line I am game.
    Thank you for letting me vent. I hope you all have a great day.
  • My wife and I purchased a 2007 Jeep Liberty from a dealership in Cullman, Alabama in February 2007. We enjoyed the truck for a bit, but once we had it for 6 months we woke up one morning to find the passenger side rear window had fallen into the door over night. i thought someone had broken into the vehicle, but didn't see any glass. We took it to the Jeep dealership near our new home in Mckinney, Tx, and they fixed it for us. Then exactly two months later, the other side fell into the door under similar circumstances. then the passenger side front window fell into the door. All the while, I thought when we were taking these into the dealership for a fix, they would "Fix" the problem. however, when the same window fell into the door a few months ago, i discovered they are not.

    Bottom Line: If you are a tax payer, you are now essentially a shareholder of Chrysler and GM. We have just invested in two companies that do not fix problems, but perpetuate them. I want out of this Jeep so bad. And I only hope the company stays around long enough so that the resale value of my POS doesn't fall any more than it already has. This company is an absolute joke! what ever happened to pride in building American vehicles has surely flown the coop with the Chrysler. Every Chrysler employee should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this to happen to what was once a fine representation of American craftsmanship. they all have played a part in allowing this company to do this to the consumers. shame on Chrysler.
