    The window is down, won't come up. Is there a trick to get it out of the way? I can bairly fit my arm throught the square hole, just to be able to touch the top of the old motor.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Front/sides or rear?

    The rear cable can be easily disconnected and run with a dril motor.

    take the plug off and run 12 volts directly to the motor. if that doesnt do it nothing will.

    Got it all taken care of today. Talked to clarkjw24 last night and he walked me right through it. Thanks alot John, you rock:saweet: :saweet:

    1) remove door panel.(duh)

    2) remove two bolts and two nuts the hold the track system to the door.

    3) get the window off the track rollers and either remove it or support it up out of the way.

    4) take the brace and handle rod off. Take track system out of door.

    5) replace motor and reassemble.

    Nice!

    Don't forget to clean the tracks (rubber and felt piece that the window slides in AND the roller tracks on the regulator). I then use the white spray on grease on all tracks.
