In this video, we're going to be working with our 2006 Chrysler 300. We're going to show you how to remove and replace your vehicle's read window guide on the rear windows. This is important for making sure the window goes up and down straight. If your regulator is functioning properly, it's possible that this is rotted, bent, or damaged, and causing your window to bind or slide off track.

Here are the items you'll need for this repair: 10mm socket, ratchet, socket extension, interior trim removal kit, Phillips head screwdriver, painter’s tape, razor blade

The four plastic push pins on your door, there're three on the outside edge here, and one on the inside edge, all you have to do to remove these is pop the centers in. You can use a screwdriver to do that and you don't have to knock them all the way through like that, you can just pop them in. Use one of your 1A Auto trim tools to get behind it and pry the clips out. So there are four Phillips head screws along the bottom of the door panel and one up in the corner here in that four. There's a little tab under the door handle that you have to pry down with a trim tool and there's another Phillips head screw in there. Our piece of trim is missing but you'll normally have to pop down a little trim flap here to access that Phillips head screw.

Once you've got everything exposed, you can go ahead and remove all of those with a Phillips head screwdriver. Once you've got all your screws off, you may not even need your trim tool, pull the panel out and release all the clips, then slide it up and off the door lock. Pop the tab over for the latch rod on your door handle, rotate it out of the way and slide the latch rod out of the pole. You can then reach the connector for the rear window switch and unplug it and remove your door panel from the vehicle.

Now we'll remove our interior water shield here in the door panel. Now you can see ours had been taken apart before, and somebody wasn't very careful with it, it's all cracked up and broken. So there's really only so much I can do now to save it, but this is a perfect example of why you want to go slow and careful, especially with water shields like this. Now what I'm doing is using a razor blade to separate the adhesive because these water shields are so delicate on these cars. All I'm doing is laying it flat against the door on top of the adhesive, and just pushing down nice and smooth while pulling out on the water shield. You can see even then I'm cracking it, this stuff is just really, really fragile. Once all the adhesive is separated, pull your wire harness and your door rod through the weather shield, and place it off to the side.

One of ours is missing, but there should be one of these black push-pins on the opposite side of the upper door panel as well. Once again, simply pop the center in. Use your trim tool to pop it out. Do the same thing on the opposite side, and with this one you need to kind of pull out, in, to unhook it and remove it. Loosen these two 10 millimeter screws with a socket and ratchet. Once they're loose, reach inside of the door panel, slide them up into the openings, and pull back, then pull down and remove your window guide.

Reinstall the steel for your window guide. Slide the bolts back into their openings, down in their slots and tighten them up with your 10 millimeter socket and ratchet. Lock the upper plastic trim back over the edge of the door. Just got to kind of line it up, and push it in while you roll it back into place so it actually engages behind the steel on the door. Pop the tab on your push clip back up, reinstall both of them. Again, one of ours is missing. And lock it back in with your thumb.

Reinstall your water shield. Be sure that the wire harness and the latch rods come through in the appropriate places. It can be a little tricky to line up with it's as damaged as ours it, hopefully yours came off little bit nicer. If you need to, you can use a little bit of tape to help keep this in place. Normally the adhesive should stick back together.

Reconnect your window switch and your latch. Remember the rod goes in, clasp snaps over it. Make sure that the lock slides back through the panel in the appropriate place. Line up your panel, snap the plastic clips back in. Reinstall your four plastic push clips. Reinstall the four Phillips head screws along the bottom edge of your door panel, the one hidden under the handle, and the other one hidden behind your door handle, and you're good to go.
