Don it. Good half day for amateur. Get Chilton 86-99 Bonneville, 88, Lesabre manuel.. Tricky to find bolts are under end flaps on door close handgrips. Took me a day to figure that one out. Others under light at lip of back of door. Book indicates to strart with window 3/4 up if you can. Flip up window control at rear of panel. After all screws are out raise outer edge of armrest and look for notches 4" and 11-1/2" from rear of armrest to slide inward to remove. There are screws under the door handle too. Screws everwhere. When pulling bottom of panel from door lift with a notched bar to avoid tearing the fasteners out of the cardboard panel. Two screws behind seatbelt notch at top need to come out to allow positioning the glass. The panel at the bottom of the top opening can be removed for more fredom in positioning the glass when reinserting the ball in the lower track on the window. Tape glass with duct tape to keep it from falling. Drill the factory rivets that hold the old regulator and I replaced with stove bolts with nylon locknuts slotted head to the inside the car. Can't remember the size, probably 1/4 or 3/16". Remove speaker if in front bottom of door to use your hand to do work in the door. You must twist the regulator forward with window 1/2 down to remove the ball from the socket in the bottom sliding metal track at the bottom of the window. Don't drop the window after removing the socket, tape it in place. Don't know what you do if you cannot move it to 1/2 up position. By the way, the body shops say you must use rivets, not screws or it will shift, but I have had no problems with the screws for reinstallation several years old. The rivet they use take a big hydraulic pop rivet gun that you won't have. Good luck, I don't envy you. Need to do other window on my 91. The window control may not be the same on the Custom, mine is the Ltd. you may be able to remove the motor from the regulator in the door without removing the regulator if you can figure out how to get the bolts that hold the moter to the regulator. inside the door.

first, there is a retention screw or retention clip between the window handle and your door panel. remove this clip/screw then remove the screws that hold the door panel.

Hi Dear Lov, Remove the plugs from the arm rest and behind them there will be deep seated screws. Push in a long screw driver and remove them. Next lift the window control buttons and when removed from the housings disconnect the electrics. (Keep the switches handy) next take a flat blade tool and starting at the bottom of the door, insert the blade between the panel and the door and gently pull the blade towards you. When the studs pop move to the next until all are released. Lift the panel off and then refit the switch to the cables. Reach inside the door and feel for the operating rods which extend from the handle to the latch mechanism. at each end you will feel plastic clips which will rotate away from the rods when pushed in the same plain. These clips beak easily so be careful. It is worth getting a mirror and flash light and studying them before trying to release them. Check both sides as the mechanism may be different at each end. Once disconnected you will notice two hole opposite the exterior door handle, through which a socket spanner fitted to an extension will fit. Remove the nuts and then remove the handle from the outside. When fitting everything back together make sure the rods are correctly fitted. You may find you need to lift or lower the window, or maybe remove it completely to do the job. Regards John
