Drivers side rear, I guess 5.5 years isn't bad compared to what some of you guys get. I'm gonna pull one from the parts jeep to fix it.

Same here, that is the one that broke on my sport, and the only one that ever broke.

Same here and I had to realign the track to eliminate the bind.
Sir Sam should have the talent to make the window work like a breeze.

Well I got it in without too much hassle. Removing the old new was a PITA since the window wouldn't roll down.

I'm not particularly thrilled with the stud design of the attachment to the window regulator.

Not fond of stud design either. Note that when you reinstall, particularly with the Steiger part, you need to be sure the stud is perpendicular to the window. It's kind of hard to see to bend it correctly but a good check is to make sure that the reinstalled retention clip is equally behind both sides of the stud ball. If it's off toward one side or the other adjust accordingly otherwise the stud will pop out of the retention clip and you will have to go back in and adjust. Happened to me.

Will they repair the window mechanism when the vehicle is out of warranty which most of the 2006 models are by now?

Yep, when I replaced both my rear window regulators with the Stieger i also sent an email to Jeep complaining and got a call telling me to send the invoice and proof of payment and I'd be reimbursed.

Supposedly an official notification will be sent out for 2006 models (at least) in Dec.

What I can't understand is why they do something like this, and specify only two model years...when everybody from 2002-2007 has had issues with the windows. That's just stupid.

I got the letter today too, I have to agree with Sir Sam that it is more trouble to take it to the dealer then to just fix it yourself. I will just send them the receipts for the Steiger kits. :goink:

Took the CRD into the dealer after speaking with Chrysler case manager. I was required to have the dealer "diagnose" the window problem. Service Rep said that Chrysler had approved the work. I "just" need to pay a $100 "co-payment". Since the Steiger parts are less than $100. I'm conflicted. That some get the work done for free, while others (me) are charged a "diagnosis fee" or a "co-payment" angers me.

According to my Case Manager, if I didn't get the letter my VIN is not covered by the extended warranty despite being a 2006.

First one on my 2006 Liberty to go was the left rear, May 2009. Found out they replace them with 2002 Liberty parts, which include full glass, regulator and motor replacement ($100 with my current warranty, $500 without). I found out that the window bracket was going to be the same exact cheap piece of plastic that had failed in the first place, so I chose to spend the $100 on Steiger's part - so glad I did. Why replace all those decent parts and use the same shoddy window bracket that will break again?.

Christmas Eve 2010 (a Friday) my left front failed. Got Chrysler's "so called" extended warranty in Monday's mail. I was so happy to see Chrysler was finally doing something about this ongoing problem. That was until..... the dealership told me that it was my regulator and that Chrysler's extended warranty wouldn't cover it. Also told me that the window lift plate was the most current one so it didn't need to be replaced, which is total BS! It is the same cheap plastic piece of junk. I plan on it breaking at some point in the future. I plan to purchase all of the future window brackets from Steiger. Chrysler's warranty is useless and I feel they have done me dirty! So much for the bailout!!!!!

I've had all 4 windows fail. Front two got fixed under warranty, back two failed in 4th year. Thought this letter was a god send until I go to the dealership and they tell me I'm not covered as it covers only the window mount and not the track. After a lengthy discussion that lead nowhere I've decided to simply try another dealership.

Found this letter pretty funny too since I've called Chrysler Canada about this before and they told me there was nothing they could do as it was out of warranty. Hopefully the next dealership is more understanding.

Anyone got a PRT# for the Steiger part?
