Ah ha! I used vice grips to remove the screw, but upon closer inspection, the regulator was fine after all. Turns out it was a clip problem.

I thought the regulator was bent out of shape, but when I inspected my new one, there was an identical curve to the rail as well. The clip kept jamming against the door impact beam while going up and down, but once the window was lightly attached, all was well.

Now I have an unused regulator for sale...
