You don't need to do all that if you are just replacing the motor. Regulator does not have to come out. Remove panel. Remove access hatch. Look for the place on the regulator were a bolt can go through. Put a nut and bolt in. This keeps the regulator from collapsing under the pressure of the spring when you remove the motor. I think its 3 or 4 bolts that hold the motor in place. remove them. The motor should pop out.

Warning!!!! Don't remove the motor without securing the regulator with a bolt. The whole thing will spring down on you. If you have a finger in there you could loose it.

Its a bit tight. You'll need to reach in there and get to the bolts. Look at the picture in that other link. see the 3 bolts? Obviously you won't get that view on yours because the picture shows the skin off. But you will need to reach around the motor to get to the bolts.

Now if you want to change the spring....thats a different storey.

Jim,
My window motor replacement went without a hitch today. It works better than the drivers side. Thanks again for your help.
