Hi randy chrismon,
Here are the procedures.
Window motor is part of regulator assembly. Entire assembly must be removed.

1. Remove door panel. Remove plastic sheet.

Do not drop the glass inside the door.
3. Carefully move the glass until you can see the glass-to-regulator bolts, then remove them.
4. Carefully pull the glass out through the window slot. See Fig. 11 . Check the guide pin for damage Replace as necessary.
5. Disconnect motor harness connector and retaining clip. See Fig. 12 . Remove motor and regulator bolts. Remove the regulator and motor assembly through the center hole in the door.
6. Before installation, lube all the sliding surfaces of the regulator. See Fig. 12 . Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
7. Ensure the guide pin is installed in the rear channel guide properly. See Fig. 13 . When installing the channel guide cover, apply the double-faced adhesive tape to it.
