remove the panel screws and the handle screws and clips usually behind window handle, if electric ok.
remove panel lift bottom out and panel up after clearing door base, be careful not to pull wires or break plastic. lower window so bolts of lower/mid
trac is visible. loosen but have someone hold the window from falling inside, it will break easily so don't torque or drop it inside. once trac is loose remove
through top but turning if necessary to clear the top of the door. not too easy

Good question. The motor has a gear drive for the plastic cable which moves the window. When you loosen the bolts for the motor, there will be a separation of the gear from the plastic cable. Then you will be able to move the window without interference from the motor.
There can be several ways to brace the window. You may find metal braces inside the door. I use some "C" clamps about 3"long that I obtained from Big Lots. But you can also use small Vice grip pliers and wood. Just clamp the wood to a brace and rest the window on the wood.
There is not a lot of room to work with, but the motor is easy to change out. One word of advice- if you can unplug the wires from the old motor before you remove it, plug the new motor into the harness before you take even 1 nut off the old motor. Remember to have the Ignition Key in Run position or the vehicle running.
Then try the new motor. Your problem may just be a bad switch. I hope you have been helped by my solution.

For a X reg (2000) Jaguar S- type: to remove the rear left winder mechanism do the following... Remove the door panel: remove two Philips Screws from under the small rubber mat in the door pull recess. Starting at top outer edge lever the panel away from door using something that does not damage the paint (I used a flat wooden spatula) - you will hear the poppers as they release the panel; work down and around the panel using your fingers. At some point the bezel around the door opening handle will become loosened and you need to carefully remove it - I found this awkward. Lift the panel upwards off the door and remove the cable that goes to the switches. Next remove the large access cover made of soft material stuck on with body putty and the circular sticky plastic disc covering a hole in the lower centre of the door. Remove the loudspeaker - four bolts into door metal and a cable. Remove the trim strip from the bottom edge of the window opening. Assuming the window can be moved slide it so the securing peg can be seen through the small hole uncovered when you removed the sticky plastic disk. It appears as two concentric circles of plastic, outside diameter about 1cm, with a hole through the middle. Knock out the middle peg with a punch of about 4mm dia. This will disappear into the door and will be needed later! Once the inner peg is removed the split outer peg can be pushed through releasing the window from the regulator mechanism. Pull the window all the way up and secure with duct tape to the side of the frame so it doesn't crash down. Remove three nuts securing the mechanism push it in to the door void and remove the electric plug. I did this through the speaker apperture and found it awkward to get out - patience is needed if yours is as difficult. Manoeuver the mechanism out through the access hole and survey the damage.
