    I have done it a couple times. I always cut a hole in the door by the motor to access the bolts. Most speaker holes will allow you to see it.

    Real easy with proper access holes.

    BTW - Liz Vicious is HOT! ;)

    It will cover the hole, for sure, if you have lower carpet panels. I reall can't remember where to make the hole. I just remember looking through speaker hols and seeing that if I cut a hole over here, I can get to those bolts real easy :)

    Look down the door and see where the motor is and see where you need to drill some holes.
    '
    If not, I think you need to take the regulator loose, scissor it down (might have to take out the window) and get the motor up to the access panel area. Its actually pretty easy to gut the door. Not that hard at all. Just pe prepared to cut your wrists up and be totally pissed off by the time you are done lol

    Cutting an access hole is the way to go. Its fast and simple.

    I found the hardest part was in reassembling them so that the window and gear are matched. I'd suggest using tape to mark where the window is when you remove it (easier to do about half way down) and making a mark on the gear teeth as well.
