How to install window glass/window regulator/carrier plate

I am in Mexico in a place where the mechanics massacre nice cars, so after crooks smashed my window glass to find nothing in the car... I bought new glass but the mechanism inside was already ruined. I need to install the glass only just to correct my blind spot right now.... (cardboard) I have removed everything and there seems to be no way to install the glass? Can someone help me? I am a Canadian girl in Mexico.... PS I will NEVER do this myself again... so no need to buy manual....

Welcome KCee:

I can post some info for you, on this. Is it the front right or left front? Since the window regulator is also damaged I guess, why not replace it too? If not will it hold your new replacement glass in place? Please reply and I will try and help & Good Luck!

Oh thank you

Hi thank you Rickaren....
yes the inside mechanism is gone, too, but it is so expensive here in Quintana Roo I will wait until I know someone is coming from Canada and they can bring it....
just for now I was thinking to replace the blind spot cardboard I have.... it is the back rear passenger seat window... does that make it the right hand side?
I thank you in advance as it is about to rain....

Here you go everything about rear window glass on your Nitro. These vehicles do not service the window regulator and it is part of what is called a Carrier Plate. I have included (all 18 pages!) to remove and install both the rear window glass and the Carrier Plate. Hopefully you can install the new window glass even if the window regulator does not work or is in the down position. I suggest you print out all pages even if you don't have to remove or replace the window regulator/carrier plate for future reference.

Removing the trim panel and replacing window glass that has already been broken out could be doable, if you don't have to move the regulator it appears. If that doesn't work you should have some help to continue on, since it could be easy to get hurt, or break your replacement glass. Good Luck, again!

Got a message from KCee that she couldn't get the glass in position today. It looks like the plastic regulator is in the way. As you can see from the above, that requires some work to remove. Hopefully she can find someone that can help her with what I have posted to install the new glass.

I will also post instructions later in this Thread concerning front window glass that looks to be about the same as the rear doors that may help other Nitro members here.

REMOVAL FRONT DOORS

Apologize for these improper scans, but if you use the REAR Door scans that are nearly the same you should be able to understand what is required to install the front glasses. GOOD LUCK
