    Very simple job...............From inside the truck, with the rear window in the up position, take off the tailgate access cover(18 or 20 screws). Disconnect the power to the motor. Disconnect the drive cable from the motor body. Unbolt the motor from the bracket- I believe there's 2, maybe three bolts/screws. Take off the old motor and install the new one in reverse.

    While everything's apart, it's worth it to spray some graphite lube down the cable tube and inspect/lube the drive gear.......

    Before you buy the motor, make sure that's really the problem. The back window in my '87 moved at a glacial pace when I bought the truck. When I opened it up to see what was going on, I found that the cable between the motor and the window regulator was all gummed up. The factory lube had dried out. $13 later I had a new cable and the window worked like a champ!
