WINDOW MOTOR REPLACEMENT

1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 150,000 miles

How do I replace the driver's side power window motor on a 1999 Chevrolt Monte Carlo LS? I already have the door panel off and new replacement motor, but I need instructions from this point forward so I don't damage the door or window, or the window spring. Thank You.
