You dont need to replace the motor just fix it. Remove the door panel by taking out a couple of screws around the inside door handle, the bottom rear of the door and pull the panel up and out. Unplug the window, door lock and courtesy light plugs. You will find three bolts that hold the motor in place. Remove them and the motor will fall out. Now unplug the motor and it is ready to fix. There are a few people on eBay selling the bushings that go bad, buy one of these kits. Each motor gear assembly has three bushings, they are sacrificial and will rot over time, it they where not there damage to the motor gears could occur they protect against it. The bushings can be tricking to get in, but if you get all three of them diagonally in and push hard they will slide in. When putting the motor back in make sure the outer gear goes onto the crescent shaped large gear in the door, if not you will just be putting the motor outside the gear. Put the connectors and door panel back on and you have spend one hour and $9 (That's what I paid for the bushings on eBay)
