SOURCE: My driver's side window motor

First you will need to remove the inner door panel to gain access to the window motor and regulator. The are only serviced as a unit. You will need some masking tape or duct tap for the next step, on the bottom edge od the window glass you will fine that it is attached to the regulator. There are two clips you will need to remove ( they pull out fairly easy) Before removing them place strips of tape over the top ov the door frame down both side of the glass to hold it in place. Next disconnect the wiring from the window motor it will be mounted in the center of the door frame.You will find 4 bolts 1 in each end of the regulator. You may think your trying to get a square peg into a round hole wiggling the regulator out but it will come. Installing is the opposite of removal, just be sure to plug in your motor and take the tape off the glass before trying the operation and alignment before putting the door panel back on. Hope this helps

Windo motors wont work

The driver side window switch is the master switch, the power or input to either roll the window up or down goes thru that switch. Double check all the connections on the back of the driver side window switch are good. With a DVOM you can also check to see if 12v are even getting to the master switch in the first place. If you aren't even getting power to the main power window switch you could've blown the power window fuse.
