First remove the inside door panel to get access to the regulator, the unit comes bolted together in one piece until you have it out of the vehicle. Once you have the whole thing out you can replace just the motor. To get it out you have to drill the 3 rivits that are holding it in place then remove the 3 nuts. To replace it you can either use a rivit gun or add 3 nuts and bolts the same size as the rivits. If the cable has to be separated for any reason do not open the black spool, be careful because the cable tension is preset by the factory.

I just replaced the motor without removing the whole assembly from the door (didn't have to drill out rivets). You need to remove any speakers or other trim on the interior of the door. After you remove the three bolts holding the motor to the gear unit you can separate the two inside the door. You'll have to drill a hole in the door to get at one of the bolts - there's a dimple in the door at the location where the bolt is located. Just look at the new motor to see where the bolts are located. The window needs to be up to give you enough room to separate the two inside the door. Once you take out the three bolts just take a screwdriver and pry the two apart. Disconnect the wiring harness from the motor and you can pull the motor out through the speaker opening.
