I can give you a general answer here. The Haynes manual gives pretty good info on removing the door panel, which is your second step. (The first is to disconnect the negative battery lead when you have electric windows, locks etc.) Once you're in there, the motor should be evident. You will probably have to drill out rivets to remove the motor and there is probably an electrical connector which unplugs. Installation is the reverse. Replacing the rivets requires a pop rivet tool, available at any parts store, or you'll have to use small bolts, lockwashers and nuts. I'd try the pop rivet tool. Bear in mind that this is just general info. The job may be quite different once you get inside the door. Electric windows can be a big pain, according to my mechanic. She tells Horror stories about little plastic geared strips which attach to the window and the motor. I guess it's worth taking a few minutes to pull the door panel and take a look. If it seems like it's beyond your skills, you know what the answer is ... find a cheap mechanic. Also, be open to using used parts and motors from salvage yards. This can save you a bundle! Just for the heck of it, call your dealership and ask what it will cost to replace a power window motor. Be sitting down when they quote you the price! FriPilot I can give you a general answer here.
