Has anyone ever changed the window regulator on a xj , if so what was involved?

A very good question as the driver side regulator on my Jeep has a dead spot when the window is down. I have to pull up on the glass to get it past the dead spot and then it will wind up. Does the regulator in your Jeep appear to be riveted in and not bolted?

don't know. what I do know is that one day I was putting the window up, and it dropped. I have a lordco crappy repair part, but I have not installed it yet. (looks like I have to take the glass out & to do that I have to take the vent visor off. (I need to pick up 2 way tape to replace the tape on the vent visor)

Sounds like you may be missing a few teeth on you reg tape.

Keep me posted on this too, as my jeep has the same problem.

Lots of mods.
Injection is nice but, I`d rather be blown!
