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 ( http://www.tuscanituner.com/forums/showthread.php?t=119 ), 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.

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.
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.
Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
Lower the window to the down position.
Remove the door trim panel.
Remove the door water deflector.
Remove the window-to-regulator bolts.

Partially install the three bolts (2) to hang the regulator in the door.
Position the regulator in the door and hang it in place.
Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. 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.

Window Regulators and Motors - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
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
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
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.

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
