I know how to remove the regulator and window assembly from this car, it's actually a pretty common setup for late model cars with cable operated power windows.
my problem is how to remove the two screws that hold the window to the regulator trolley. the screws are only visible when the window is lowered, they are covered by the inside of the door frame when the window is closed. i know i could accomplish the task by destroying the cable/regulator assy and just replacing it, but i wonder if someone knows how to do this task without destroying the regulator assy?

Typically a window regulator, it has a lot of plastic parts that can break fairly easily, remove the door panel and while closing the window via the switch pull up on the bottom of the window. and then replace the regulator. if the motor doesn't help you pull up the window check the voltage going to the motor, if you have 10 to 12 volts then replace regulator and motor, if not replace the switch.
Relays are pretty much always as close as practical to the piece of equipment they power. This would put them inside the door. You can test this by operating the window switch and listening for a click -- the click is the solenoid in the relay pulling the contacts together.
You could go to autozone or pepboys, they have a "Haynes" manual on the year, make and model of your car. In it, it shows step by step instructions with illustrations on how to remove the door panel and replace the window motor. This manual shows a complete how-to on your vehicle and retails for about 14.99.
Dear Kim: From your description, it sounds as though you have a problem with the window regulator and/or motor it self. Nissan and most other manufacturers have now gone "unfortunately" to a cheap design which seem to be very prone to failures. The regulators use a small cable which runs on nylon pulleys and guides. The only point in which the actual force of lift and lowering is applied, is at the center of the regulator and runs on one track. The most common failure is when the cable comes loose because of a pulley or guide failure. The second failure is with the teeth on the motor. The motor and the regulator are available separate. They are not difficult to replace and do not require any special tools. Good luck.....
Try removing the fuse to the windows and see if that resets the system. I know what your talking about of the 02 Altima, have a issue with mine using to much oil and the dealership says there nothing wrong.
