How do I put the new passenger side front window in?
It could get complicated, best bet is to have a n auto glass shop do it..

SOURCE: passenger side window
disconnect the battery. remove the door lock knob. remove the bezel around the interior door latch by sliding the bezel towards the front of the car. carefully pry off the air bag logo. There is a torx screw under it - remove said screw. Carefully pry off the two screw covers under the door pull - there are two torx screws under these two covers - remove the screws. With a flexible flat spackling tool, caerfuly run the tool around the door cover, releasing the clips that hold the cover to the door. lift the door cover away from the door, and disconnect the front speakers. disconnect and remove the airbag. Carefully remove the foam liner, exposing the window mechanism. Carefully pry up and remove the drip rail from the interior side of the window. re-install the air bag (else you'll set an error code) and reconnect the battery. Run the window up or down as needed to expose the connection between the window and the lifter mechanism. disconnect the clips on the two sliders that run in the channel on the metal clip attached to the bottom of the window and carefully press that slider towards the door - which will unclip the slider from the lifter mechanism. Now the window should pull up and out of the car.
replacing the window is the reverse of all this, making sure the window is aligned in the tracks inside the door so that it goes up and down smoothly.
All I need now is to figure out how to adhere that track to the bottom of the window - that's what broke on my car - something that will adhere to the glass and metal!

You may be able to find a working door in a scrapyard. far easier to install. Not terribly expensive.
You can get decent instructions in most inexpensive manuals haynes has one for about $20 available in most larger parts houses.
good luck with it!

to replace window motor,....
take off door panel, disconect wires for power window controlls pull back plastic that covers door, if you have a feel around inside the door you will find the motor,
its on a chain like device, take that off motor, disconect wire that goes to motor.
on the inside of the door panel there will be the bolts to take off the motor, undo these and your motor is out,

Before you replace anything, inspect the connector pins in both the driver's door switch and the passenger door switch. If you don't find any problem with these connector pins, replace the driver's door control switch.
