Answers :

Remove the door panel: 1 Unscrew the lock knob. 2. Remove the door release escutcheon (cup inside of the door handle). 3. You may nee to remove the A pillar interior trim ( the plastic running from the dash to the roof ). 4. Remove the door pull handle to unscrew the screws underneath it. Look for little round plastic covers to remove with an awl or ice pick to gain access to screws. 5 Get a long flat head screw driver or a wonder bar and work your way in under the panel and interior door skin starting with the bottom rear portion of the panel. You will feel the tension of the door panel clips. Pop them loose one at a time. It is best to use the tool to get two or three fingers from each hand in there and firmly lift the panel in a quick pulling motion. When I say firmly, I mean don't pull so hard as to break the panel once the clip releases. Once you have the panel off there usually three screws holding the window regulator on the door. Unplug the wire connector to the motor.
There is a screw or clip holding the portion of the regulator that slides along the bottom of the window. Take that off and save the plastic and rubber bushings for install. Installation is the reverse of this procedure.
Test the window before reassembly. Tie up long hair and don't wear jewelry when working on electronics. Good luck. You can find these procedures specific for your car at the library in a Haynes or Chilton's manual. Sometimes they have factory service manuals too. You can also buy the after market books at Pep Boys or Autozone, ect. They are good to have for reference if you work on your car and they have electrical schematics too.

Remove all screws on the door. Push up and pull on the inside wall until the side panel pops off. Carefully remove the sound insulation thus exposing the motor. take a flathead screwdriver and pull out the circle thing Take notes on how the cables for the window are wired. take them out AND BE CAREFUL! they can rip off your fingers and damage your hand. remove motor. replace motor in the exact same order as when you took it off. Have another person hold the window while your re-install the cables for the window. put the round thing back in it's place and use a needle nose pliers to bend the metal flaps back in place. then use some auto super glue to re- attach the sound proofing then re-attach the interior, push the lock through the hole then push the handle back through the hole and screw all the screws back in place.
