You need a coil spring compresser, and the proper skill level to use it.
If you try to change the coils without a compresser, you CAN & WILL GET HURT. Coil springs are not something to fool about with if you do not have the proper tools. These things are danagerous.

first remove the door panel there are three screws that need to be removed first 2 under the inside door handle and 1 on the lower left hand side behind a reflector then pull off the panel it will be held on by push clips, once inside move the plastic weather bearrer to the side ,run the window half way down you should see 2 window holding brackets pull the window up so you can drop it in the brackets, first get some black window adhesive fill the brackets with adhesive put window in brackets and roll it up and leave it up for 24 hrs.If the brackets are broken you will have to replace the whole window motor assemly which you can get on line for 89.00 not the 250.00 at dealer and you can install it yourself its easy to do.

Ahhhh....had the same problem. This was a challange for me. I discovered that an ancher on the window where the cable connects had broken of. I was going to buy and new assembly but it was a 170 bucks. So I took the window out...there is a pin that holds the window to the assembly, once you remove the pin the window slide out the top and the assembly can slide through the door opening. I cleaned the broken piece of plastic that the cable was attached to and used (very important) JB weld. It's a bonding product you can get at any auto store. I glued the piece together and covered it like it was frosting (it sets fast) and put the whole thing together again. This was a year ago and it still works. 6 buck but there was a bit of a learning curve. It works though!

It probably did not fall off. There is a plastic piece on the regulator that can break if in a bind. When this happens, the window just falls into the door. You need a new regulator/motor assembly for the door this happend on. Dealer is expencive. Napa will have it for $120.
