    Okay Guys, I'm a happy bunny at last. The fixing kit arrived, is now installed, and hopefully I'll never need to do the passenger regulator again. I had a few issues along the way - it took ages to get the plastic rivets out, one of which I had to cut with a hacksaw! Also the top of the door card with the 2 metal clips didn't come off with the panel, so I removed all the (useless) staples and glued it back together.

    Big thanks to the OP of this thread (thanks Bob ) I've added my own pics to show the fixing kit which cost $79 including the pliers and tape plus shipping. It was a bit fiddly to do but got there in the end, I'm not sure why they supply 2 long and 2 short screws, 4 long ones made the job much easier

    Anyway, here's a video of the faulty window before starting so you can see what the symptoms are



    The repair kit

    My faulty regulator, you can see in the bottom left where the plastic tube had come out of it's joint (note also the holes in the plastic corners of the regulator, they serve no purpose, but the metal fixing bracket uses these - so why did Dodge not do this simple bracket at the factory?? - it would have saved a lot of warranty claims and busted regulators

    After removing the 3 screws on the motor bracket, disassemble, fit the repair kit, then replace the motor screws. Use the screws and nuts to fix the ends - notice that one side is 'face up', the other is 'face down' as per the instructions supplied) The metal fixing bracket is supplied flat, so the pliers are used to bend the ends where the screws go.

    Wrap the electrical tape round the metal fixing bracket and the window regulator tube at both ends

    Now the fix is complete, it was still hard to get the assembly back in the door, but you can afford to be quite rough with it as the metal makes it (hopefully) impossible to snap the plastic tubing.

    Finally here are a couple of pictures of the metal clip which holds the front of the window glass to the regulator, just to make things clearer.

    and this is where it fits, I practised on the garage floor before putting it back in the car
