Removal
Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove door panel and inside panel sound insulator. Remove inside belt weatherstrip. Disconnect window regulator wiring connector.
Using a 1/2-inch drill bit, drill 2 holes in door inner panel at drill dimples located opposite 2 unexposed window regulator electric-drive retaining screws.
CAUTION:Check inside door to ensure window regulator wiring is not in line with holes to be drilled in door inner panel.

Remove 3 window regulator electric-drive retaining screws, using 2 drilled holes and one existing access hole. Push regulator electric-drive toward outside sheet metal to disengage from regulator gear.
With regulator electric-drive and regulator gear disengaged, prop window glass in full up position. Remove regulator electric drive from door.
WARNING:Window regulator electric drive has a counterbalance spring. Window MUST be in UP position to remove power motor or blocked to prevent window from suddenly raising, causing injury.

Installation
Install NEW window regulator electric-drive. Tighten retaining screws to 53-98 INCH lbs. (6-10 N.M). Place duct tape over drilled holes. Connect window regulator wiring. Connect negative battery cable.
Remove window glass prop. Check window glass operation. Ensure drain holes are open. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure.

DESCRIPTION & OPERATION
All wiper/washer functions are controlled by the multifunction switch and Generic Electronic Module (GEM) located in the instrument panel between radio and steering column. GEM controls wiper/washer functions through 3 relays, 2 relays control wipers and the third relay controls washers. One wiper control relay switches between high (HI) and low (LO) speeds. The other wiper relay switches between run and a dynamic brake (armature short circuit) and is used in interval (INT) mode of operation. Interval delay is controlled by control knob on end of multifunction switch lever. Interval speed is also vehicle speed dependent. Interval delay times decrease as vehicle speed increases.
