Thanks for the donation!

you will have to remove the regulator and motor as an assembly. then you need to drill out the rivets that secure the regulator and window motor together. below are the steps to getting the motor / regulator assembly out of the door.

REMOVAL:

Remove the door panel and the water deflector.
Remove the door glass (window).
On front door regulators only, remove the regulator retaining bolts.
Using a 3 / 16 in. (5mm) drill bit, drill out the regulator attaching rivets.
Move the regulator rearward and disconnect the wiring harness from the motor.
Disengage the roller on the regulator lift arm from the glass sash channel.
Remove the regulator and motor through the rear access hole.
