Remove the visible bolt from the left side of the arm rest.
Remove the window switch/door lock/mirror controls by popping the entire panel out, may need to use a flathead screwdriver.
Slide panel off of door.
Pull vapor barrier loose on the bottom right side. This will expose a coiled spring and window motor. Tape the window in the up position using masking or packaging tape.
Mark a straight line across the coil spring, to help with realigning the new motor.
Use tool j-38864 connect it near outer part of coil sprint where it hooks to retainer or in a pinch use pounted vice grips at same location ensuring they are firmly locked on spring.
Force spring clockwise to disengage it from it's retainer point.
Pull spring slightly outward just enough to clear the retainer point and slowly let it uncoil counterclockwise.
Disconnect wire connector from right end of window motor.
Push the three plastic retainer points outward as you lift up on window motor to disengage from retainers careful not to break the plastic retainers comes out pretty easy
Install new motor into the plastic retainers, make sure it is fully seated.
Reconnect wire connector to new motor.
Use J38864 or vice grips to recoil spring, reseating it to retainer point as before.
Remove tape from window and test up/down switch.
Reseal vapor barrier in place as it was before.
Slide switch control back up through hole in door panel from where it mounts and slide door over the door handle.
Align retaining clips to holes and push them home with gentle raps of your hand start at the top and work downward on panel.
Replace the bolts in the arm rest and pop back in the controls.
