More Info

Excellent guide to removing the panel, this is the same way I've done it. I'd like to add a bit more information to assist in placing the window back on its rail.

You WILL need a 10mm socket driver. A second set of hands will help!

1) Re-attach the power window controls so that we may temporarily operate the window.

2) Looking at the internal door through the largest opening, roll the window down until you can see the bolt that holds the window on the mechanism. If you move your eyes towards the door hinge, you will see a circular opening in the door and a second bolt that holds the opposite end of the glass.

3) CAUTION!! Make sure the window is held in place while performing this step, or the window may fall into the door and break! Using the 10mm driver, remove both of these bolts and maneuver the window back into its track. (you may even have to pull the glass all the way out of the door) Slide the glass back down into the door, making sure it is sliding straight down and remaining in its track. Bolt the glass back into place and operate the window to ensure it stays in place.

4) Close up the door and enjoy knowing you've saved $175 dollars for doing this yourself!
