I need to replace the motor on my DW746. Is there anything tricky about this? It looks like all you need to do is pull the through bolt from the on-saw bracket, take off the belt, and the motor pops out of there. I guess that humongous spring will force the bracket out into your waiting hand, but my experience is that it's never this easy. Any tricks to it?

Can be lots of things. If you don't open the door, to see what god on, you won't find out. Could be from a loose screw, to a broken gear or some other things. You have the car close bye an you can look in it. We have to guess. Most guesses will be wrong, an anyway if you want to solve the problem, you have to open the door anyway. Or just bring it to a repaire shop.
Thats going to be a tricky pull. you can actually do BOTH methods fro pulling that motor. Which ever is easier for you would be better.
As far as the rod knock. Rod knock simply means that the rod bearing has spun and is no longer a smooth surface. potentially, you could pull the motor and replace just that rod and bearing if the crankshaft was unaffected. the majority of the time, more work needs to be done. I think in this case, it may be cheaper to remove the motor and replace the crank and bearings. A replacement used motor will probably run about 1k if you can find one at a yard.
You must have the replacement window mechanism before you attempt to take off the door panel. You don't want double the work ! Window winder mechanisms come with or without motors depending on your needs ! It can be tricky but perfectly possible by a confident DIY'r.The door panel has pop fasteners and 2/3 screw/bolts in the door pull/inner handle.
This is the door the get's used constantly and on occasion slammed. Sometimes the connector and/or lead powering the window motor gets jarred loose and needs to be reseated or the motor seizes and needs replacement.
You can purchase a door handle removal tool from any parts store which will allow you to remove the handles. Then remove the trim screws holding the door liner panel and pull the door liner panel off. You may have to reach in with a helper screw driver blade to twist out some to the push in plastic holders. Be careful not to force anything loose or you may have to re-epoxy the special fasteners.
You should now have access to the connectors to the switch. Re-seat them and test for motor function. If no function replace motor. You should be able to locate aftermaket replacements on line or at a good parts store. Dealers may stock them but more than likely will have to be ordered anyway.
Reinstall motor, retaining screws, handles. Pins are a little tricky but a long point needle nose pliers comes in real hand.
This is a little tricky but you can do it without really taking anything off the engine.
The starter motor sits on the left hand side of the, underneath the engine block.
When you open your bonnet you will see the clutch cable etc stickign up and then a bit oif space behind that.
If you look into that space, hanging of the engine will be the starter motor.
The stater motor is connected by two bolts (top and bottom), you will need a good socket set and an extendable socket piece to get to the bolts but you can feel around find them.
1. Undo negative terminal to the battery
2. Undo the ground wire from the starter. (It will have a little rubber cap on it - it a 10 mil bolt in Australian Imports)
3. Undo the bottom bolt first (otherwise the top one is a little tricky to get out
4. Undo the top bolt.
5. Pull the starter out (to the left) - you will need to wiggle it aorund a little but it will come out without having to take of anything else)
Installation is the reverse.
When i first did this it took me about 30 mins....
you will have to pull the door panel, make sure you tape the window up after it has been unbolted you will have to unhook the wiring harness from the motor and then there should be 4 nuts on the regulator rail itself. it may be a little tricky getting it out. i would look on Amazon to find the lowest price on a replacement regulator
on almost all 4.6s the pcv is on the passenger valve cover. it is usually black and has a hose going to it. the hose is about 1/2" or more in diameter. just pull out of cover and pull off hose to replace. why do you want to replace?
As you say you are clueless about fixing anything, I suggest you take it to the service center and get it done. Replacing a electrical part has to be done properly, and fixing a turntable prob can be tricky.
