Mark the glass position and reinstall in the same place on the new rail, the glass rail may not come with the new regulator, in this case it will most likely be pop riveted on to the regulator..

Step 3 Disconnect the glass from window regulator.

Step 4 Tape the glass to door frame. The glass should not require removal.
o Tip: Tape the glass out of the way to allow access to the window regulator and window lift motor assembly.

Step 6 Remove the window regulator mounting bolts. Slide the regulator assembly out through the interior access opening of the door. Remove the motor.

Step 7 Attach the original motor to the new window regulator and install the regulator assembly. Tighten the mounting bolts.

Step 8 Reconnect the electrical connector to the window motor.

Step 9 Install the window back onto the window regulator.

Step 10 Re-install the vapor barrier.

Step 11 Re-install the door trim panel and handles/switches.

Step 12 Test the power window for proper operation by rolling the window up and down in complete cycles for proper testing.
o Tip: After re-installing a window lift motor and regulator, it may be necessary to re-program it following manufacturer specific instructions. Not following or performing this step may result in improper power window function.

Replacing window regulator


You can buy the plastic clips from the dealer, break the old ones, there is no tool that I remember using, in fact I don't remember having any problem, are you sure the regulator is at fault? why not just replace the motor?
