Best Answer

1. block-wedge your window so that it does not move. 2. remove interior door panel. you will also have to disconnect your window switches to totally remove the panel. 3.remove plastic sheeting CAREFULLY, as this can and should be reused. 4. when looking at the naked door, you will see 2 dimples near the front of the door - if you drill through these dimples, you will find that they align perfectly with the rivets that hold the window motor to the regulator - drill through the rivets and the motor will fall out. 5. by going through the door's access panel, install the new motor - bolting it to the regulator. 6. re-install switch and check to ensure it is working. 7. replace plastic sheeting, ensuring that it is sealed in place properly so no water can enter. 8. replace door panel.

The window motor is attached to the window regulator by screws. After removing the door trim you must detach the regulator from the door by drilling-out four rivits. Then remove the screws from the old motor and install the new motor. Re-attach the regulator with bolts and put the trim back on the door.

How do you replace a power window motor on a 1995 Pontiac Firebird? Oh man... this is the same problem with my wifes F150. If you drill through the inner door sheet metal or plastic you can access the final of three rivets. To remove the motor you have to drill out the rivets. Get a rebuilt motor for about $80 (ouch) and reassemble with the nuts and bolts that were included in the box, that replace the rivets. I think I had to cut the wires and solder up the original connector to the motr. The wires were color coded. You can try to remove the window and regulator as an asembly.. but you would be a fool. Drill. It'll take you under a half hour.
