SOURCE: how do I replace the

fairly easy to do once door panel is removed ,it comes as a complete unit ,but if its a pattern part then you will have to cut the existing multiplug connectionand join the two wires together with the new motor,their is normaly three bolts or nuts on the motor and a bolt either end of the runner ,but some pattern parts have a stud and nut not a bolt but all the bits come in the box with an instruction leaflet Also some models have two runners but it will be the same as the original iam am only saying this as i am not familar with all makes of cars but this is not a difficult job to do if you unclip the glass from the mechanism and push it up then get assistant to hold the glass up at the top in the closed position then when the new mechanism is in lower the glass and fix the retainer that hold the glass in position ,shouldnt take more than 20 minutes to do

SOURCE: do you need to replace

You don't have to replace it but you have to take the belt off to remove the water pump for the extra $30.00 i would recomend changing the belt too, unless the belt has been changed less then 20,000 miles ago .

Is the resistor getting power from the relay ?

How easy is to replace the oil pan in a 1998 mercury mystique a mechanic told me he would have to raise the motor to change it, is this true.

Yes its true, many things to disconnect raise the engine, best leave it to a garage of your choice as its not a pretty sight when doing it.
