I don't know much, but this has happened to my 2001 Durango RTfour times...
Well twice it was the motors and twice it was the cables.
Hopefully it's not either for you! Either way, you should be able to take the panel off and leave it UP until you can fix it, if that makes sense?
Good luck, You can go to auto zone and buy a manual for your truck and it will show you EVERYTHING. I love mine... I have it on PDF, downloaded it for free from somewhere on the WWW, but I don't remember where from. There are diagrams for every I mean Every part on your truck in there.
GOOD LUCK!!

I should have paid more attention to details on my windows when I took the panels off to replace/repair my speakers. If your D is cable based, you may have to replace the whole assembly similar to alot of import cars like Toyota and Nissan. They sell the assemblies with and without the motors. I used to booked a website that had all the assemblies you can buy on the cheap, better than going to your local pick and pull yard.

Which window exactly is the one that broke?

Here is a listing for the window regulators only for the front windows of the durango. this comes with motors. Trying to find the site that had it without motors to save a quite a bit of money unless your motors are shot.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000RH5UCE/...p;linkCode=asn


Same price for either Left/Right Front assemblies. cheapest price so far on the web and so far, I have been unable to find an assembly without the motor to lower the price down.

Price for all the assemblies including the rear windows:

Swab it depends on the junkyard but the cheapest ones tend to be the ones that you pull the parts yourself. Just pull the door apart first to see what you need and go to town.

Hate to rehash a old thread but today, my driver's window broke. It started when I roll the window down, heard some sounds like the glass is scratching against something but isn't. When I rolled the window up, you hear a loud pop, then window fell down.

Went out and google the net for a couple of hours bargain hunting for the cheapest price window regulator. Unfortunately you will not be able to buy a window regulator without the motor. So for the complete assembly with motor, this website has it for the lowest price as they do not charge for shipping.

https://www.am-autoparts.com/AM/Wind.../Durango/2000/

Also, they have a 5% coupon code (google for it) to get it a little cheaper. My part is suppose to arrive before the end of next week. Good thing I have a second car to drive! Cold front is over DFW right now and it is bone chilling out here with the winds howling!

Thanks Indy,

I already ordered the complete assembly. I found that site before but it did not really tell me if it is only the regulator without motor? I guess I may give them a call to check for pricing.

The one I ordered from am-autoparts, costed me $61 with free shipping. Cheapest ever for a complete assembly. The part is made by Doran and lots of users posted good reviews on its reliability and durability. So at least this will be a 10 minute part swapout as I don't have to disassemble the electric motor.

I'm getting ready to do one too. Did you get your parts ok from this company? Were they the right ones? Would you reccomend this company?

Mongo,

I would recommend it. So far so good, just make sure when you order, you are ordering exactly for the door you indicated. Otherwise you will get the wrong part.

The install was less than 10 minutes to take out the old part and put in the new part. Most of your trouble will be taking the door trim and disconnecting the wiring harness to the master switch console if you are working on the front driver door. While you are at it, go buy some electrical grease and put some over the head of the wiring harness to your power windows/locks. This will prevent electrical issues with your windows randomly working in future.

Blue2001,

The rear doors should be easier to do vs the driver door as there aren't as many controls that you need to disconnect. Basically you will need a log rod (I used my 10 inch socket extension tool) to lodge the glass window from falling down to the bottom of the door. Then you can remove the whole assemby. I think if I remember, there are two bolts that hold on the shaft, and 3 bolts that hold down the motor assemby to the door frame. there should only be two bolts that hold the actual glass to the assembly. So I think 7 bolts total. The motor/regular/shaft is all one complete assembly. I think most bolts, you need a 10mm socket or +/- size and/or no #1 phillips.

If you never done this before, there is a link in this forum on how to change your door speakers with picture illustration, you can use these illustrations to assist you on how to remove the door trim to gain access to replace your power window assembly.

Blue,

You can go to the website that I posted where I bought my window assembly. The price is very reasonable.

The window glass has a metal insert at the bottom that also serves as the sleeve to connect to the assembly. The sleeve is connected to the assembly and held together with 2 bolts.

With the glass held up with a rod insert, you bolt down your assembly but don't tighten the bolts yet, just finger tight them. Then bring down the window to line up the holes to put the bolts back on to hold the window glass back on the assembly, once you have got this done, then you can begin to tighten the remaining bolts on the assembly to the door frame.

Default Omg people on these forums ramble so much

Omg! People on these forums ramble so much! I always hate when i look up a question it draws a search result with the question and i come to the site to see people having a conversation about nothing pertaining to the question!

Your question: Your cable broke and your window fell in the door!

Answer:It's The Actuator! It comes with a track that you bolt on inside the door and has cables attached to it! Cables bad window fell pull window out at an angle get new actuator remove old put new in bolt window to actuator! Window will work then!

Check Autozone.com Or Advance.com Or order from partsgeek.com or autopartswarehouse.com for driver side or passenger
