I just did this on my Tuscani yesterday, :-)
Once you have the working motor in your hand,
Work with the car stoped and with the windows up.
Get the inside door-panel off ( ), cut a slice (that you will put some duc-tape on it after) the inside plastic to get to the 2 covers in hard plastic and remove them, just have to pull on them with your hand.
Remove the 3 bolt that hold the motor (put you hands by the 2 hole where was the plastic covers and feel the motor. Once the 3 bolt off, nothing will pop/spring-out/or unmount by itself. With your left hand, take the motor and manage to get it down to where the lower plastic cover was and you can twist it for you to see the other side of the motor because you have two philips screw to get off. Before separating the 2 parts after getting off the 2 screw, check realy good how it goes with the old and the new motor. get them apart and put the new one like the old one was, put the 2 screw back, untwist and put back in place, bolt on back the 3 nuts, replace the plastic cover, replug the electric cable. Put duct-tape on the slice you made or if you have a all new plastic pit it on, re install the inside panel of the door with the cables connected and test your new windows.

How do i replace left window switch on a 1997 chevrolet lumnia

the actual switch to roll your window up, or is it the window motor? window switch is easy. all you have to do is remove door panel and disconnect the connector from the switch and pop it out of the panel and install the new one. window motor, you have to remove panel and there is a metal frame on inside the door that is sometimes riveted. if that's the case, you may need to rivet it after you pop the rivets. or some make a hole around the motor specifically there to replace the motor. shouldn't be a bad job. all you have to do is get in there and see what you got. not that hard of a job.

Howto repair left back window

Get a tool for removing the inner door panel. Determine which tool is used to remove door handle / armrest (screwdriver or Torx or hex head screw) and get that tool. Remove door handle, then door panel. Once that is removed, you can determine whether nylon tape needs to be replaced or if motor assembly has come loose and needs to be reattached or if the window is simply off its track (if it is, you should already know this because it will drop down by itself). A video is at How To Install Replace Rear Power Window Regulator ...

If you want to have someone else repair the window, and if it has come off its track, use some clear packing tape (lengthwise) to secure the window to the door until you can get it repaired.

Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

Left side drivers auto window will not rolldown

  • Remove the door panel's Phillips screws from the arm rest and the screw in the door handle. Remove the plastic cover concealing the mounting surface for the outside mirror. Remove the window switch by prying it forward and up with very little pressure. Disconnect the electrical connector. Remove any screws around the circumference of the door panel if any.
  • Grab the door panel at the bottom and lift it up to release the hooks on the lower part of the door. Tip the bottom of the door panel outward a little and push up to release the top of the door panel where it is hooked on the top ledge. Disconnect all electrical connectors on the door panel. Remove the panel.
  • Reach inside the access hole to remove the electrical connector to the window motor. Remove the bolts holding the motor to the door. Remove the screws holding the window motor to the regulator barrel.
  • Install the new motor into the barrel of the regulator. If it does not want to line up with the splines, lower the window slowly and the gear will turn and the motor will line up. Install the screws holding the motor to the regulator. Bolt the motor to the door with the bolts. Install all components in reverse order of removal.

    How to un ininstal the electric window motor on a 1997 lumina

    Window Regulators and Motors - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    NOTE Some window regulators are retained at least in part, by heavy-duty pull rivets. To remove these rivets, the center mandrel must be pushed through with a small punch, and the rivet(s) drilled out with a 3 / 16 inch drill bit. The factory recommended repair requires the use of the same quality of heavy-duty pull rivet.

    Fig. Typical W-Body power window regulator and bolt tightening sequence

    Fig. Chevrolet models use a cross-arm type window regulator
    Coupe and sedan front doors use a cross arm regulator. The following procedures are required for removal and replacement of both power and manual window regulators.
    1. Remove the door trim panel, as outlined in this section.
    2. Remove the plastic sheet water deflector and the energy absorber (foam pad).
    3. Remove the door window. Please see Door Window Glass, Removal and Installation in this section.
    4. Detach the electrical connector, if equipped.
    5. Remove the window regulator bolts and the regulator cam nut.
    6. Drill out and remove the pull rivets.
    7. Remove the window regulator cam bolt.
    8. Remove the window regulator from the vehicle.
    CAUTION Do not attempt to service the window regulator motor separately. It is part of the window regulator. The regulator lift arm is under tension from the counterbalance spring and can cause personal injury if the motor is removed from the regulator. The door window regulator cannot be serviced separately. If defective, replace the regulator and motor as an assembly.
    To install:
    1. Position the regulator by inserting the bottom through the access opening in the door, then rotate the top of the regulator through the opening while lowering the regulator to clear the top of the access opening. Align the holes in the regulator with holes in the door inner panel.
    2. Install the door window regulator bolts and tighten to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
    3. Install new pull rivets. Install the upper left rivet first, followed by the lower right rivet.
    4. Install the door window regulator cam bolt and cam nut and tighten both to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
    5. Attach the electrical connector, if equipped with power windows.
    6. Install the door window. Please see Door Window Glass, Removal and Installation in this section.
    7. Install the energy absorber (foam pad) and reposition the plastic sheet water deflector.
    8. Install the door trim panel, as outlined in this section.

    Hope helps (remember rated this).
