Hello and welcome to Just Answer.

Here is the manual procedure for removing the regulator assembly.

Note....
Once removed you will need to remove the rivets that hold the motor to the regulator.
Careful when you do as the assist spring will snap apart when the motor is undone.
The gear holds it in place.
I usually pinch the regulator with vise grips or wire it to keep it from moving.

OK, here it is.


Removal Procedure
  1. Lower the window to the three quarters down position.
