That depends on what's wrong with the window? If it's just broken glass, first you need to purchase a replacement.

Next, remove the outer door skin. The inner door panel does not come off, so don't waste your time trying to figure that out.

Lift on the outer door handle enough to expose the retaining pins on the under side of the handle. Use a small punch or small diameter rod to push the retaining pins out, then remove the handle.

Open the door and remove the screws from around the perimeter of the door skin. Make sure you have something/some one to support the door skin so that it doesn't fall to the ground and get scratched.

After you have removed all of the screws, carefully lift the door skin off to expose the inner workings of the door.

Run the window frame as far down as it will go, then remove the glass channel.

Clean up any broken glass so that it doesn't trap debris or interfere with the movement of the new glass.

CAREFULLY, slide the new glass into the appropriate space and align it with the window regulator hardware. You may need to loosen a few of the bolts to get the glass channel into the rollers, but once it's all exposed, you should be able to figure it out.

Test the window to make sure everything is aligned properly, and you may want to lubricate the tracks and seals. Use silicone spray to lubricate the seals.

After everything works properly, put the door skin back, followed by the outer door handle.

NOTE! If you damage the pins that hold the handle, you should be able to purchase replacements from your local Chev dealership, IF they have agreed to stock Saturn parts.

Good luck.
