Hello,

The window motor is connected to the window regulator, you must take them out as a unit.

Remove or Disconnect
Negative battery cable (with power door components).

Bend the tab down on the window run channel to slide the door glass from the regulator roller assembly.
Regulator assembly rivets.

Regulator and motor as a unit.

Regulator and motor assembly to the module panel.
Window.

Bend the tab upward on the window run channel.
Window and module to the door.

Lock rods to the retainer clips.

Module panel screws, starling with the top front and top rear screws.
Door lock linkage.

Please let us know what happens.

Best, Ken

You need to remove the whole window regulator out. Then you'll need to remove the motor from the regulator. Some are riveted in, and some bolted. I would clamp the the motor and regulator "together" in a vice so when you take the motor off, the regulator doesn't come flying around causing injury. Once you pull the motor off, that spring is gonna let loose. Be careful, and good luck.
