Actually, Chrysler made this task pretty easy because the motor sits between the inner metal door skin and the door panel. The ardest thing is getting the door panel off with out breaking all of the door clips.

BUT, first before you order a new motor or regulator (BTW,the cheapest price I found is on eBay) , disconnect the motor's harness and see if you are not getting juice at the connector. Install a voltmeter or light bulb between one of the two slots and ground and try the switch (make sure the ignition is on) then try the other slot to ground. If you get juice, your motor isn't working. Now let's check a little further: Cut off the plastic tie on the motor and remove the two screws holding the magnetic field housing and remove the housing exposing the armature. With you fingers turn the armature to determine that it is free. Lift up the armature so the the commutator is just free of the brushes. Take a Q-tip in some solvent and clean the commutator till the copper color is showing. Make sure the brushes are free to move and press the brush lead away from the motor shaft to allow the brushes to move forward as much as the can. insert the armature back into its original position making sure that the brushes are pushed back with a small probe. Next slide the field housing back over the armature and replace the two screws and reconnect the wiring harness. Now try the motor! If it doesn't work, you only wasted five minutes. If it does work you may have saved a lot. It may last longer than you need especially if you lighten up on using that window. It will usually give you warning of future failing, which you probably ignored before.

The fuel pump on a Dodge Caravan is not on the motor, it's located inside the fuel tank.

first take of the door panel. Next you will see the window regulator. The there is going to be 4 bolts or so that you are going to need to take off, after that unhook the window. Then pull the whole window regulator out and replace the whole thing

I have repaired both electric windows in my 1988 caravan. There is a white plastic track that the motor pulls and pushed and this is what opens and closes the window. It is located inside the door behind the door panels. Usually the track breaks, with age and you need to replace them.

Yes and no, you'll need to replace the computer,trans,motor mounts,front exhaust pipe and possibly the wiring harness, not a job for the inexperienced

It is at the base of the rear window inside the door panel.

They typically seize to the shaft of the wiper motor. Sometimes you literally have to peel them off.
