2002 Wrangler windows

I have an '02 Wrangler X and over the weekend the driver window's zipper function broke. Now I can't open or close the window. I remember something about the dealer telling me that the zippers are all guaranteed for life. Is this true? Any similar experiences to share?

Thanks for your help.

No impact, no idea on the warranty for life. It is a common problem though. You have two options. One, buy new upper skins. Two, an embroidery shop may be able to sew in a new zipper for you. I had that done when I was living in Uruguay and it held up for about 3 years. Then it broke and I went ahead a put new skins on.

Fleabay's got zipper repair kits for TJs pretty cheap. Sometimes the back of the zipper pull will open up, causing the teeth not to mesh correctly. This can be fixed by pinching the backs slightly with some pliers, and lubricating with some silicone base lube.
