First jeep problem...

Well guys it's been just under a month and I've ran across my first jeep problem...

Went to remove the back window for the first time today and both ends of the zipper were pulled all the way to the passenger side in the bottom corner by the tailgate. The zipper on the top pulled all the way to the left just fine without a problem, but the other part is trapped on the bottom passenger corner with the zipper teeth off so that I can not pull it down or up even 1/2 inch.

I've ordered some cleaners, products and zipper lube which should be here by the weekend so I'm waiting until then to work on it again, if the weather permits I'll simply lay it down in the back of my jeep but it would be nice to be able to completely remove it and know that everything is in working order.

Anyone have any good advice? I can post pictures tomorrow if needed...

I'm not sure, man. Seems like the lube and some muscle will do the trick.

Haven't had the windows out of my Rubicon yet but I still have to work hard getting the 06 to release. They are really pretty stout so muscle and lube would be my best guess. It works on the 06.
Good luck!

Get a D- ring style key clip and put it through the hole on the zipper pull to give you some additional leverage. Can you post a pic? Having trouble visualizing exactly what the problem is.

I had a pair of plyers kept in the jeep to pull on the zippers with. You can pull a lot harder with 'em.
