Is there a quarter glass and side window shade? Do you have any car repairing skills and do you have the tools? It will not require special tools, just a metric socket set, 1/4" drive, screwdrivers, plastic prying tools, Torx drivers, time and patience. And the replacement window regulator, the motor may be still okay to use.
