A Chrysler Voyager window regulator, known as the window motor, controls the window's movement. When a regulator malfunctions, the window does not operate properly, which may damage the glass pane or other window components. Replacing a window regulator at home saves you the cost of paying a mechanic's labour fee.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Park the Voyager and turn off its ignition. Open and secure the bonnet. Disconnect the vehicle's negative cable from the battery terminal using a wrench, turning the bolt counterclockwise.

  2. 2

    Remove all controls, light covers and trim bezels from the door panel by prying them gently with a flathead screwdriver or trim stick, unplugging any electrical connectors at the same time. Place the removed components to the side.

  3. 3

    Remove the retaining screws from the inside door trim panel, turning counterclockwise with the screwdriver, and place them to the side.

  4. 4

    Release the door panel retaining clips by lifting the panel up and out simultaneously. Lift the panel away from the door, disconnecting any remaining electrical connectors from the panel. Handle the panel carefully to avoid scratches or other damage.

  5. 5

    Peel the plastic water shield way from the door carefully. Do not touch the adhesive.

  6. 6

    Remove the U-shaped clips from the lift plates that secure the window glass in place. Remove the glass lift plate from the regulator plates, carefully resting the glass pane on the bottom of the door.

  7. 7

    Remove the regulator guide rail retaining screws. Lift the regulator, pulling it out with the guide rails through the access holes.

  8. 8

    Insert the new window regulator and guide rails through the door access holes. Secure them with the retaining screws and attach the electrical connector to the regulator.

  9. 9

    Reposition and secure the glass pane by sliding it up where the glass lift plates connect to the regulator lift plates. Insert the U-shaped clips.

  10. 10

    Reapply the plastic water shield. Reconnect the electrical connectors to the interior door panel and secure the panel with the retaining screws. Reinstall all switches, controls, light covers and trim bezels to the door panel to complete the installation.

Tips and warnings

  • Using plastic sandwich bags labelled with a marker to store the screws and nuts can help avoid confusion during reassembly.
  • Test the window operation before reapplying the water shield and reinstalling the door panel.
  • Avoid injury by using gloves when handling any cracked or broken glass.
