How do you remove a window motor on a 1988 Lincoln town car?

After removing the door panel and plastic weather shield, you can reach inside the door and feel the motor and the three bolts holding it on. You can't get to them with a tool. They (dealership) want you to spend $$$ at the dealership, but if you have a holesaw or can borrow one from a friend, there are three small dimples in the sheet metal directly over the bolts. Use about a 1" holesaw and use the dimples as guides to start the drilling process. It takes only a few minutes, and then all you need is a rachet, extension, and a 3/8" socket (I believe the bolts are 3/8" that you need to remove.)
