All you need are 10mm, 1/4 inch, and 13/16 inch sockets, a socket driver, and a Phillips-head screwdriver...
The rear window regulator gear itself — part number 4467214 (March 2010 list price $26.70,
dealer cost $16.00)...
and Band-Aids and gloves...
Chrysler's warranty time guide shows 3.2 for this repair
Remove two 10 mm bolts from the rear seat. The rear seat cushion will pull right out.
Without the cushion:
Under the seat cushion back panel are two 10mm bolts on each side; I use a ratchet wrench
to remove them. Then, on the rear seat housing, start to remove the Phillips head screws. Some are hidden.
On the top of the regulator assembly is a gold nut (10mm). Mark the position of the nut and remove it.
Now the regulator assembly is loose. The regulator is very flexible where the power window motor is. Lift the regulator assembly up, twist it towards you, and pull it out.
Installing the new gear is tricky. Let the motor do the work or the gear will snap in two.
Be sure the track is cleaned from dirt and grime,
and put a light coat of WD-40 on the track.
Tap the gear with a small hammer until you are just past the contact point of the motor; go no further. Reinstall the motor to the regulator assembly.
Go to the car and plug in the motor; push the power window switch to the up position
and let the motor feed the gear the rest of the way.
Reinstall the pin and C-clip
(in the package they give you a new C-clip and retainer; you do not need the retainer for this repair.)
Now reinstall the regulator into the car.
Put the top end in first as far up as possible and wiggle it in. Be careful, it has some very sharp edges.
Reverse the preceding process to reinstall.
Be sure you line up the marks for the quarter glass and the gold regulator nut so the window aligns properly.
