Take the door panel off there are 2 screws one is located at the bottom of door panel the other is hidden behind the button panel which contains the up/down switch for the window use a flat head screwdriver to remove the button panel. After these 2 screws are removed take the panel off by lifting the panel in an upward direction it is hooked to the door. unattach wires and then everything should be relatively easy. remove regualtor by unscrewing two bolts on top and drilling 2 rivits that at the bottom of the door. the window is riveted to the the regulator so that will also have to be drilled. Do not drill the 3 rivets where the motor is located. the motor can be removed by unscrewing 3 star type screws. to put it back together you'll need to buy replacement nuts and bolts to replace the rivets you drilled.

Pretty easy... First, remove the interior door panel to access the motor and regulator. Unplug the motor connector. At the base of the window are two clips that hold the window to the regulator...remove them and pop the retainers out of the regulator mount. Raise the window and hold it in place with duct tape...two strips from front, over the top, to the back. Remove the bolts that hold the motor and regulator in place and remove the assembly. Installation is the reverse. Good luck!

All you do is take off the door panel remove foam (plastic, rubber) weather guard & disconnect the wires for locks and window... remove speaker. There will be bolts (usually gold) . There are clamps holding the window to the regulator / motor loosen then pull window out through the top of door. When window is free just shimmy the regulator / motor out of the door on the bottom left side (there should be a decent hole to get it through...) once out put new regulator / motor in and place window in new clamps on regulator / motor tighten bolt back together and put panel back on....

How do you replace window regulator in a 2003 dodge grand caravan?

Remove the door panel, just a couple of screws. unbolt the regulator from the window and push the window back to remove the studs from the regualtor holes. push the window all the way up and run a piece of tape from inside the glass around the top of the door and to the outside of the glass at the front and rear of the window. the regulator is bolted in with 4 bolts, two at the top and two at the rear. once unbolted, you'll have to cut the zip tie in order to rotate the two regulator run channels to manuevur them out of the door. just reverse the procedure to install. before you tighten the regulator all the way, bolt the window up and pull up and back on the upper back corner of the window to prevent any wind leaks
