So every window in the wagon is off the track! I was able to find two Dorman 74444 window track guides locally. How many do I need per window? Will two do the drivers side? I was planning on purchasing the remaining ones on rockauto.com but really wanted an exact number to purchase. Trying to get my drivers side done so I can get through the Fort's gate showing my contractor ID.

Thanks!!

I actually did a Dorman 74444 yesterday. Got two at the local Pep Boys in Davie, FL. Autozone didn't have any, but said they could have them next day. While windows have two, they never both break. Just replace the broken ones. I've never had the opposite one break.

I get them from RA for half of what the parts stores charge. I replaced them all because I was already in the doors and glass had to come out to remove the garbage tint from them Sad

Looking at the inside of the drivers door, the right one is broken. Left one good, but feel I should replace it while the door is apart.

Problem I'm having is the top part of the inside door cover will not come off. Looking at removing the speaker near the right bottom to get to that bad one. Any hints?

Screws: two end of the pull strap, one behind door handle, two in armrest, one in bottom back corner in pocket.

Panel is then held on with press in trim clips and slip fit at top.

BTW, top and bottom are not supposed to be separate pieces ;-)

That's my problem, they are in two pieces. The panel is pretty busted up. I've already gotten all the screws out. The top will not come off the door.  I guess I'm not going to break anything, as it's already broken. I just need to man handle it off.

Grab it at both ends, and lift from the back, vertically/diagonally. It's held by tabs along the window channel. Helps if window is down.

So I got the right hand side in and completely back together. Top speaker duct taped in, moved a Christmas tree that was still good to a panel slot that wasn't broken off and still held, put the screws back in and the extra and it's good!

Window rolls down properly. Will be my ride to the Fort starting Wednesday.

And DEFINITELY use a heat gun to snap in the roller on the track and the pin in the roller! Learned that one from 81X11 thread! Thanks!
