Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
I just pulled the panels out starting with the top center then the bottom center. I then pulled the panel straight out. Grab the arm and twist it to open the window. There are 2 - 3/8 (10 MM) headed bolts holding the motor in. Remove the bolts then open the window as far as you can. The motor won't fit through the vent opening but you can pull the arm out a little farther. If you look closely, you will see a "C" type clip which is inserted into the bottom of the round knuckle joint just before the piece that fastens to the window. Spray this joint with a little WD-40. Wait a few minutes for the WD-40 to work then stick either a small flat screwdriver or a pointed awl into the round part of the clip. Pry this clip out very gently. Once the clip is out, the motor arm will release very easily. Reverse to reinstall.
Hope this helps.
