    Im glad this didnt happen mid- summer... the window was screwed up like a week ago, I had to lift on the window to get it to crank up. I took it apart, and looked at the regulator, greased it and reinstalled it. It seemed to work fine with out weight on it. I installed the window, and its really messed up. now it cranks up, and if i like shut the door the hole window rolls it self down, but the handle crank dosent move. I had to force it up as far as I could, and get plastic sheet and duck tape the hole. It isnt off the tracks, but I dont know what the hell it could be... any idears or questions? oh yea its a 91 teg, manual windows.
    is it possible to convert to power windows, and how hard is it?
    i wonder how much the dealership(or should I take it to local auto body?) would charge me to fix it(probably like $42,516 labor, +2.00 disposal fee, +66.92 tax, +13,500 parts, and three months to fix)

    thanks for all the help...i got a new door(my body was messed up on the door anyway, so i got one in perfect condition, and put my glass in it. Yea the glass falling down was pretty dam funny, because it took me like 15 minutes to get it up, and the I was like ok ill shut the door nice and gently, and bam, window rolls it self down. i was so pissed. i ended up wedging a piece of wood under the glass in the door to keep it up. oh well.....shit happens....
