The door panel will have to be off the door or such that the bottom can swing out enough to work in the door at the bottom. Remove the speaker. The motor can be seen to the left through the speaker mounting hole. There are three hex head machine screws that attach the motor to the lift mechanism. These are at the 3, 6, 9 clock positions of the motor drive housing. The heads are toward the car interior and are close to the metal of the door, and are almost impossible to remove without a straight ahead approach with a socket. Clearance holes large enough for the socket can be drilled with the right type metal bit or hole saw. Access can be cut with a cut off tool or a grinder with a narrow wheel. This is quick and easy and messy looking but will be out of sight when the door panel is replaced. The door strength will not be adversely affected with either method. Remove the three screws and through the speaker hole pull the motor toward the door interior and toward the speaker hole. Remove through the speaker hole. Installation of the replacement motor is just the reverse of removal.

Why won't the driver side window in a 2001 Chrysler Town and Country open?

I recently had the same problem with a friends 01 Town and Country and it was the drivers side power window motor at fault. A Mopar mechanic friend of mine strongly recommended purchasing the power window regulator assembly with motor attached. If you separate the motor from the assembly, reinstallation is nearly impossible. The complete window regulator with motor assembly was just under $140. Installation took about an hour. Also, the dealership had the assembly in stock which tells me they sell many of them.
