First you are going to have to purchase another window regulator. Then you will have to remove the door panel and all material until you can access the window regulator.
At this point I can't go further until I know if it has manuel windows or power windows, because each is an entirely different operation.

SOURCE: change window gear on 99 civic
this is from a 97 civic should be the same. remove the door panel. remove 1 screw and pull handle, remove 1 screw and plastic cover over door opener handle. remove speaker cover and three screws underneath. remover window crank. then remove the door panel (held on with plastic plugs...just pull panel toward youself).
to remove the regulator ("window crank gears") Remove the glass held in with two 10mm bolts. The regulator itself is held in with six 10mm bolts. Remove these bolts and remove the regulator. (installation is reverse). Note: pay attention to the Idler arm track (highlighted in green) I think this one is directional (the front has to be at the front and the back has to be at the rear)

the window winder handle has a spring "E" clip so you need to use a this blade and turn the handle till you can see one of the edges of the clip and then push the blade in against the edge of the clip to push it of. NOTE: the clip is under a little pressure so when it comes of it will try to flick of quickly so try to keep your hand around so to catch it.
Then its just the door panel clips which are around the edges of the door panel just pop these off with a good sized screw driver all the way around, some of them will be quite tight so you will need to use a little force.
When putting the window winder back on push the clip back on slightly but not all the way then push handle on slowly when it is all the way on give it a sharp bang so that the clip will lock back in place.
Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Yes they do use plastic in them. after time they wear out and cold weather will finish them off. You will have to replace the motor.
