Cool window replacement

Hate to be a party pooper but you should get a manual.
It is hard to explain on the net. Kinda like workin on a motor with the hood closed.
If you google it, you will find window motor sites that explain with (photos).
Is the motor spinning but the window won't move? That is what mine did. You can get replacement rollers from Advance Auto.

Its real easy, just get in there and find the window motor and unbolt it and install the new one. The window motor costs from 40 to 60 (new). You don’t have to take the window regulator out or anything else to replace the window motor.

Before you get in over your head.....Get a manual. The Haynes manual covers this fairly well, but not really worth the price. You will need to drill out the pop rivets that locate the regulator to the door frame, and remove the motor and regulator as a unit. It's best to have someone there to hold the glass for you. When you have the regulator and motor assembly out and on the bench, notice that there is a big wound spring that holds tension on the regulator. Be careful of that spring, since there is a lot of energy stored there. There is a hole in the gear plate that will align with a hole in the regulator arm. You will want to take the side plate off the motor and rotate the shaft by hand until these holes align. Put a bolt through the holes, and finger tighten a nut on the bolt to hold things in alignment. Then unbolt the motor from the regulator, and install the new motor. Once you have the new motor bolted to the assembly, you can remove the bolt that you installed through the 2 holes. You did not get your finger cut off either now did you? Installation of the regulator and motor is the reverse of the disassembly. If you don't have the very big pop rivets, and the special pop rivet tool (and it's bigger than the ones that they have at Home Depot) use 1/4" bolts that are 1" long, with lock washers and nuts. They work just fine. Button everything back up, and enjoy your labor.

Those who beat their swords into plowshares, will surely plow for those who did not.

What is wrong with your motor?
Does it make the noise like it's trying to roll the window up/down but the window doesn't move?

What happens, is there is a bushing in the main gear that gets worn out. Just get a window motor gear kit from AutoZone. They're about $30. Taking the door panel off is the hardest part. Just find the motor, unbolt it and take it out. It explains itself once you get the motor out, just take your time and when you get the gears back in make sure you grease them with some white lithium grease or something similar.
Let me know if you get stuck on something and I'll try to help you out.

Got panel off but the metal panel that motor is attached to makes it where you can't get to the motor. Can feel the motor from the speaker hole but unable to see what your are doing? Think it may be the gear because it trys to roll up and down but stutters. Will roll up and down with help.
