Well, by golly I can sure try. Looks like a pretty fair sized job and you have to remove the window to get to and remove the handle. The instructions below are not the best, XXXXX XXXXX are all that GM offers, so hang in there and we will see if these will work out for you. You will already have the door trim off, so I will skip that part and start you with the window. Just take your time and be careful and you should be okay.
