You will need to remove the door panel first this guide will give you an idea of what to do;

This guide will show you how to get the door glass out.

The water deflector is secured by a strip of adhesive between the deflector and door, as well as waterproof sealing tape. Upon installation, make sure a good seal is achieved to keep water from entering into the body. If necessary, use strip caulking as a sealant between the deflector and door.

Lower the window until it and the sash channel can be seen in the door panel opening, then remove the sash assembly-to-window bolts. Remove the sash assembly and the window from the door.

On some late model vehicles it may be necessary to remove the sash assembly, then cut the clips from the glass in order to remove the glass from the door. If this is done, new clips must be installed on the glass before it is lowered into the door and rotated into the run channel.
