This is what I did to repair mine. First use a small flat head to remove the screw cover in door handle. Remove Phillip screw. Pull door handle to the right and let it hang. Start at the bottom of the door card, firmly pull to release plastic tabs. Grab and firmly pull door pull to release two inner tabs. Continue removing door card and rotate/push door handle through hole in door card. Carefully disconnect all wires from door card to door. Remove the speaker pod. Use a razor blade to remove vapor barrier by carefully cutting the black adhesive. With door open, you should find a portion of the pink upper window regulator wheel. Remove the bolt securing glass to window regulator. Have assistant lift glass as you remove the three bolts securing the window regulator. Disconnect power wire and remove regulator. With regulator removed, remove motor and install on new regulator. Very rarely does the motor fail. (Most of the time the wheel breaks , cable gets tangled up, and the motor binds). Installation is the reverse of removal. Good luck. :beer:
