YOU HAVE TO DRILL OUT THE RIVETS AND USE BOLTS AND NUTS FOR THE NEW MOTOR,SHOULD COME WITH THE NEW MOTOR!
After spending hours on this I found this to be the best way - You can replace the motor without removing the small bracket. To do this there are 5 rivots to drill out. Drill out the 2 by the wire harness leaving the bracket attached to the door. The other 3 are behind the door wall a little further down. Do not remove the lower 2 that are exposed outside the wall, these 2 are attached to the small bracket. I made the mistake of removing these before I realized how everything is connected. You can feel behind the wall for the three hidden ones between the wire harness and the 2 exposed rivots. There is one on top at two on the bottom. Drill large enough holes through the door wall to expose these then drill the rivots out. These three attach the small bracket to the motor. I would probably drill 1/2 inch holes through the wall if I ever did this again. I had small ones which made it difficult to drill the rivots out straight and I messed one up. After all why should it matter if you have a few more holes in the inner wall. Also have a block of wood holding the window up or it will crash down when the motor comes out.
Remove the window regulator and motor from the door as an assembly. Drill out rivets that hold motor to regulator and replace motor. Regulator needs to be riveted back into door for reassembly
it's riveted in. I drove around for years with a broken drivers side window motor... The cheapest way to fix the problem is to get a new door......Promise. Shops were saying nearly $700 to replace the motor.....
Window motor and regulator are found inside of the door panel and may be bolted or riveted in. Should be bolted. Disconnect the window from regulator, take out reg. and motor, then disconnect regulator from motor, reconnect new motor to regulator, reattach those inside of the door, then reconnect the window to the regulator, put it together and see if it works.

Unfortunately you can't just change the motor. You have to buy and replace the whole assembly including the window. Its a rip-off but the motor, ratchet, arms and window comes as one replacement assembly.
If the window motor runs, replace the plastic spacers with ball bearings or bolt nuts. Oliver said it.
