Do I have to take the whole regulator off, just to replace the motor itself?
I have already know it is the motor that needs to be replaced.

This is on the drivers side.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hey Sarurtech9,

Thanks for responding to my question about the replacement of the power window motor on my Moms Old Monte.

I know you said we had to take the whole regulator out, but I went against your advice and I wanted to share the results with you.

I am not mechanically inclined and I knew the more I took everything apart, the less chance it would all work right when I got done, so I put a little c clamp on the gears near the motor on the inside of the door.

Took the old motor out, put the new one in.

The only problems I came scross was dropping the nuts into the door, and I had to plug the switch in to jog gears on the new motor for correct orientation.

It actually takes less time to just remove the whole regulator also I wouldnt do it in the door for safety reasons. There is the spring loaded arm you mentioned that you held with a clamp. While its in the door its harder to see and keep your fingers out of and being caught in there. So it maybe be possible I wouldnt recommend doing it in the door because it actually makes it harder to do and take longer plus for safety reasons.
