Question about 1997 Cadillac Catera
It's not that hard to change the electric motor for the window. Yes, a handy man can do it.
Start by removing the negative battery cable from the battery. Then locate and remove the screws that hold the interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on covers).
I personally use a tool similar to the image below to remove the interior door panel; it is held in by plastic snap clips. Try to get as close to the snap clips as possible with your pry bar to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel. Once you have removed the interior door panel, the removal and installation of the window motor will be self explainitory for a handyman. You may be able to find a used motor at a salvage yard for a lot less than $143.00.
I hope this helps you, and I wish you good luck on your repair.
