This is common,the motor should be facing toward the front of the door,and the holes will only line up one way,disconnect glass from regulator this will make it easier to line up,you may need washers if holes are damaged.

Front passenger window won't roll up

It is your power window motor & regulator, the cable broke. Here is what you do, order one from, that's what I had to do. To remove it you have to remove the door panel take of the plastic water barrier, there are 2 bolts that hold the window in place, then grab the window on both sides & bring it up to the top, take some masking tape or duck tape it to the window on both sides of window to hold the window up take out the 3 bolts that hold the motor in place then take the bolts that hold the regulator, make sure you unplug the connector from the motor then pull the regulator and motor out of the hole at rear of door.
I know this because I had to do the same thing about a week ago.

You have to drill out the rivets
-- to remove the window regulator & motor assy

If the motor is bad (test it-put battery
12v to it) then you drill out the smaller
rivets to remove the motor & keep the
window regulator if good.

If the regulator is bad, remove the good motor
& put it in the new regulator

The regulator can be bolted back in as you
will not have a big size pop rivet tool for that,

Before you remove the rivets, check the height of the
window glass above the door,when window is down
You can set it just above the molding per build or down
even by adjusting how you bolt the regulator in

The regulators wear out & cause a sloppy window movement
& the plastic on top can not be fixed

nor can you afford one.

Power window reset

The window reset procedure is as follows:
Remove the door panel, disconect the glass from the regulator (then slide it up and tape it out of your way), remove the regulator (& motor) from the door, remove the motor from the regulator (so you are left with just the motor), plug the motor back into the wiring harness and using the window switch rotate the motor "up" for 6 full rotations or about 4 seconds. re assemble every thing, motor back on the regulator, regulator back in the door, window back onto regulator. (HINT: when installing the motor onto the regulator set the regulator in the middle so when it is in the door you can access the two bolts to reattach the window). Once it is reassembled, LEAVE THE DOOR PANEL OFF. Without using the express up, raise the window all the way up, then without using the express down, lower the window all the way down.
Your window should now be reset. test the express down and up.
Reattach the door panel.
Sometimes you have to repeat the above steps a couple of times to get it to reset.
good luck, HTH

Hi the forward clip of y driver side mirror is completly broken im petrified to roll down my window bc its broken off the track 3 times and finally that part broke and im in the military and daily have to...

my suggestion is to order a power window regulator, you can get from several auto parts stores onlinelike, I had a similar problem on a 2000 model and looked at fuses and relays, all were good. the regulator can be as much as 300.00 at the dealer, was a good choice for me. remove the panel, this can be tricky so start with the latch area, 1 screw behind a plastic cap, 1 in the door pull area, start removing the panel at the bottom and use a flat blade screw driver or similar item to get under the panel should pop out, and this will sound like you are breaking it, but it will be fine. remove the innerlining plastic (tears easily) so be careful with this. three bolts on the regulator and two window clips or bolts. 4 bolts, 2 each side of the tracks, reinstall as you have taken apart. good luck and look for about three to four hours of time.

How do I install a new windows motor- to include the cable drum (drivers side). The old motor burned up and the cable broke. Thanks Hans

You'll need to buy a new motor and regulator. You can go used or new, it's up to you. The regulator will include the cable.

- Remove the interior door trim,
- Disconnect the power cable from the window motor,
- Remove the window bump-stops (one at the front, one back),
- Remove the glass window from the regulator (two bolts),
- Slide the glass window out of the top of the door,
- Remove 3 nuts from the window motor,
- Remove all window regulator bolts,
- Slide the motor & regulator assembly out the top of the door.

- Mount your new motor to your new regulator,
- Install the new motor & regulator assembly in the reverse order.

It is likely a bad regulator. Remove the door panel and unbolt the regulator and motor, They are usually just bolted in on GM.

Power window driver side is stuck on 1986 Cougar

it sounds like there is power there. Window motor/regulator is most probable cause of your strife. I had the same problem luckily it was just a bolt that had shaken loose of the support arm on the regulator i reattached the bolt and it opens and closes well enough
