There is like 5 or 6 bolts that you have to take out,then you drill the rivets out. then you remove the whole assembly,install the new assembly,either rivet the new one in or use bolts and nuts,use small bolts to allow the window to roll up. make sure you lube the track really well.

How to raise window if switch is broken

You must remove the door panel then remove the drive motor that raises the window and move the window to the closed position, then reinstall the drive motor. If the window regulator is broken you must block it up with a piece of wood.

remove the door panel the plastic clip attached to the window has broken away from the regulator arm. you can replace the regulator easily at that point or you can cut a 2x4 to fit and do not forget to unplug the regulator motor. jam the wood between the window and the bottom of the inner door frame.

How do you replace a front drivers side power window motor? It is stuck all the way down and I can't pry it up. Is there a way to release it so I can get to the motor to replace it?

You have to remove the door panel. Remove the window from the regulator( two screws that hold the glass to the regulator) . Pull the glass up and wedge two pieces of wood from bottom of door to hold the window up.
Make sure its the motor thats giving you the headache and not the regulator. Regulator is notorious for snapping from the motor.

Can i manually get the drivers window to close, my electric window has broken and i need to close the window

If you remove the door panel to gain access to the window regulator assembly you should be able to disconnect the glass from the regulator assembly and then manually put window up....would probably be best to replace the window regulator/motor assembly while you have it apart then it will work, if that is not the route you want to take then you can find something like a piece of wedge shaped wood to put in between the glass and the door to TEMPORARILY hold it in place.

I need to take a power window motor out of my 2001 chevy silverado 2500 but dont know how

You need to replace the " regulator". this includes the motor, cables and pulleys ect. $80-100. Open door, remove door panel, cut the clear plastic around the door handle, loosen the 2 clamps on the top vertical travel rails that clamp to the window, (this is all part of the regulator) . somehow you need hold the window up, (I use a towel, 2 pieces of wood and a big clamp) now the window glass can be released from the clamps on the regulator. unbolt the regulator mechanism and replace. should take an hour or less the first time. about 10-15 minute thereafter. bc

My window glass stuck down ,can not bring it up to close the car window

most likely your window regulator is broken. if so i would remove the door panel and loosen it form the regulator side it up and prop it with a piece of wood. M.B. fuses their windows in an (x) ps=attern i.e. lf and rr-rf and lr. see if the opposite window works.

Need to remove rear right side door panel to fix the window

More that likely, the plastic guides that run up and down the "window regulator" are broken. If you take off the door panel, check for broken plastic pieces in the inside of the door shell. It is a common problem. However, the fix is not that easy - or cheap. It requires replacing the entire "regulator" with a new one. The repair requires removing the door panel, taking off the screws that hold the dual rail regulator and cables and unplugging the motor. The new regulator is about $70 from or you can order from Autozone for around $105-115. I can't find anyone who sells it without the motor which is probably not bad. However, replacing the whole thing is much easier anyway. I'd suggest that you get the new one before you remove the old one. It is a lot easier to see how to take it out if you know what it looks like.
