I didn't attempt doin it myself since my hands are huge, but indy said it was a PITA.
Really?? That bites. My driver side actuator is acting up. I priced the actuator at about $65 bucks through Autohausaz. Changing the window regulator is a piece of cake. I was hoping the actuator would be easy too.

Edit: Looks like BMAparts has it for $50.
