You need a new window regulator with motor already installed on it, remove the door panel, handles, wiring harnesses, then there should be four to six screws holding in the regulatorblock the glass all the way to the top and remove regulator, then install the new one back into the door in the reverse order. once it's in connect the switch and watch the glass go in motion adjust as needed to make a good seal in the frame. once done, put panel back in placce with wiring, handles. put plastic cover inside door panel back in place or the road noise will be bad and you;ll have to take it all apart again. Should be able to get a new one from a salvage yard for around $100.00 to $150.00. dealerships get $325.00 plus just for the part.

Just bought coupe v6 and drivers window wont work

Drivers windows get the most use so usually are first to fail. Do you hear the motor try to run? If you remove the inner door panel you can try using jumper wires directly to the motor to see what's up. Bad motor most likely.
