Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

When i bought this car from a private party i was not told about this issue, however I was curious as to why my window had issues staying on the track. Only after my window had exploded did i find out the cause.

The window lifter had broken in half. this keeps the rear part of my window from hitting the seal on the outside of the car when i shut my door. Obviously i didn't replace it until the unfaithful day i decided to close my door a little too hard and my window shattered.

I have a two-door model car, as you see in the picture i provided, so finding this part at a junk yard was not an option. Instead I had to search and figure out what part number this item was. That was not easy considering every diagram i found did not contain this part.

After calling a dodge dealer, i found the part and ordered it. For my car this part cost $117+tax, however i needed it shipped overnight which upped it to $141.28. I had it installed by sears for $80/hr, which is how i came to my cost figure. Overall, this was a pain in the ass. For anyone else with this problem Below i have the part numbers for the driver side and passenger side of a 2dr dodge/plymouth neon.

Driver Side: 4783723AB Passenger Side: 4783722AB

These are the rear lift plates. They are typically located towards your door handle and latch.
