Question about Cars & Trucks
If you have never done this type of repair, I wouldn't recommend it!
It doesn't cost very much in labor for a trained professional to replace your regulator. You can price the regulator yourself at a local parts store but I would buy the whole assembly! Motor & Regulator together, you should get a lifetime warranty on the parts.
Then let your mechanic install it, I only charge around $60-$70 to install them and the regulator assembly shouldn't be but around $125 or so. Hope this helps. But, below you will find some good info if you intend to replace it yourself. Good luck
Your door panel is held on mostly by plastic clips on the inside of the panel, they go around the sides and bottom of the panel. The easiest way to remove the panel is with a door clip removal tool, you should be able to pick them up at any good auto parts store or tool store.
Also, there is going to be a couple of screws that also holds the panel and works to reinforcement it. They should be around the area where your grab handle is to close the door. Most times you have to also remove the handle assembly to remove the door panel.
You also need to remove the power window/door lock switch panel. Most all the switch panels are held in place with clips as well. A screw driver placed in the right place will pop the switch panel up so you can get access to the wire assembly to disconnect it.
Once you get everything removed mentioned above, your door panel will lift off by pulling up on it. You then will have a plastic sheet/moisture barrier covering the inside panel, remove it without tearing it if possible. If you happen to tear it, you can use duct tape to repair it as well as stick it back to the inside panel.
Your door window regulator will have to be replaced. I recommend buying the regulator and motor as an assembly, it makes it easier and usually you get a lifetime warranty on the parts.
To remove the regulator, locate and remove the bolts that hold the regulator to the panel, you will also have to loosen/remove the bolts holding the door glass to the regulator. I like to use some duct tape to hold the glass in place while you work to remove and replace the regulator.

It sounds like you need the window regulator. you need to pry the plastic strip open on the door handle use a plastic knife. once you get that off take the screws out the pry the door panel off pull the panel pu and it will come off then disconnect the wire harness from the window switch. the regulator is more complicated.

Just had the same thing happen to my BA. No hot air. I'm a bit of a handyman so I had a go myself. 8 Hours is a reasonable estimate. You have to remove the steering column and entire dashboard to get the bugger out. Not a job I would attempt again.

This is how the glass shops in my area do it. Clean all the glass out of the mirror carefully. Don't want stitchs. Clean all the old glue off with a knife or razor blade and wash it with window cleaner. Wash the back of the new mirror as well with window cleaner. Put a liberal coat of silicone adhesive on the back of the new mirror and press it into place. Place a small block of wood or plastic on the mirror face and tape it on with black electrical tape. Stretch the tape as you wrap it around, make about 2 complete wraps. Do this on the inside and outside of the new mirror and leave it for 24 hours. Then you simply remove the tape and blocks and nobody will know the difference. Hope this helps. You could also get a auto glass shop to do it. It's not especially expensive. Hope this helps.
