My driver side window was stuck down today. Upon removal of door panel found motor to be extremely hot. Tried jumping it for the heck of it and it didn’t work. Smells fried. None the less I got the window up and was just looking for instructions on replacement for the motor and regulator removal and installation instruction would be fantastic. I am going to upload a picture of part that I’m buying. Thanks in advance for the help.

Hello, I'm Danny.

Basically, the window motor and regulator are held to the door shell with bolts and the glass is held into the regulator with two fasteners. It's fairly simple and should take you two hours from start to finish.The hardest part is getting everything held in place with two hands. Here is a tutorial showing how to get the door panel off put I think you've got that figured out and a tutorial showing the regulator and motor replacement:
