Problem Description and Possible Solution
The window glass lift plates tend to bend or break and cause the window glass to tilt and bind in the door. The lift plates can be replaced separately from the window regulator. In more severe cases, however, a new window regulator may also require replacement.

I took door panel off and welded the cheesy flat steel. Haven't' had a problem since...Anyone have problems with the interior door handles not working? Pass. and driver side will not open from inside, I
have to roll the window down to open either door from the outside.
i bought a 2002 chrysler concorde in 2009 for $1900 and the driver side window started having a tough time going up and down, then it started slightly tilting, then eventual it just stop working, i took it to the shop and they said that the window motor had burned out and they had to repair the window track that misaligned.
This seems to be a pretty standard problem with these cars. The lift plates are designed so that the stresses of use are focused right on the fold of the steel, which any metallurgist can tell you is the weakest part. Boo!
The window gets out of the track and has to be guided into place by hand while the window goes up.
Replaced passenger side a few years ago, now drivers side. Was unable to get just the lift plates, had to replace entire glass/plates.
It started with the window getting stuck, off and on... and let to a loud clunk and now the window roles up off the track and has to be guided into place by hand while the window goes up. ~ I love Chrystler (lol)
