New user here,
1999 GC. Passenger window stopped working. I replaced the regulator unit via ebay. It worked 24 hours then stopped and kind of self destructed. Bought a regulator locally and it worked a couple of weeks, then seemed to appear OK but not be able to move window up and down anymore. Replaced it under warranty. Newest regulator worked a week then started leaving a small gap at top. I "rocked window glass" back and forth slightly and window went up all the way, but now it won't go down more than a quarter inch. I pulled the panel off to observe it, and there's nothing obviously wrong, although I can definately see the unit working. I'm going to pull the pins to see if the window will drop by itself. I'm wondering if there's a "window glass binding" problem that's causing these regulators to die.
The van has not been wrecked, the door/window has not been repaired other than this issue. Any suggestions, thoughts or insights would be greatly appreciated.

I had a funny window problem with a Ram pickup a couple of years back where a spot weld broke at the bottom of the track and caused all manner of problems. Hard to spot unless you were really looking for it. I drilled it out myself and repaired it with a small nut and bolt, and everything worked fine after that. Take a real close look at all the moving and non-moving parts. Something's messed up somewhere.

Also, I'm assuming this is a power window, even though you used the word "regulator" instead of "motor." If motors are dying, I would suspect water getting in there somehow and shorting them out. Also, lube up the tracks real well with some of that white lithium grease to keep things sliding smoothly.
