Removing the regulator and getting the new one into place can be tricky. Just take your time and pay attention to how you remove the old one and what bolts and screws go where.
Once you get the door panel off you can easily see how to remove the window which is riveted to the window regulator..Here are instructions for determining the rear door in a Taurus.
Pluck the window switch and lock switch from the rear door panel with the trim tool. Pull the wiring plugs out of each switch manually before setting the switches aside.
2Remove the rear door panel retaining screws with either the Phillips screwdriver or socket set, depending on the year, make and model of your vehicle. If the panel will not lift off the rear door at this time, you may need to pry the door panel trim pins out of the door with the trim tool before removing the panel by hand.

Plexi works fine, but it doesn't have the embedded heating wires. To replace the glass normally requires that the hood section below it be replaced with it. This usually means removal of the hood material from the back of the car, and reattachment by staples to the mounting strip. Most suppliers have instructions on how to do this.
If you get a good used rear window, you might be able to simply 'unglue' the feature strip (that's the hood material below the glass) and reattach it to the 'new' window with 3M's special adhesive for this.
