I have no been able to pull down the window by any means. To be clear I was not needing to remove the door panel.
I have done that . In attempting to remove the regulator I havent neen able to move the windo down.
I tried removing the screws that donnect the window to the regulator, but I was still unable to get the window down or remove the regulator.
I have also tried removing the power window motor but I still can't remove the regulator or window. There is a stud at the top of the regulator that is evidently anchoring the regulator and I can't get the regulator out.
Looks like I might be able to push this stud through the inner door wall, but the regulator window holder is in the way.
I looked for a way to disconnect the motor cable at either end, but haven't found a way.
What if I cut the cable?
The repair I am trying tomake is to replace the window motor, which I think is a part of the regulator.
Here is a photo ot the regulator to window connector and the blacked out "8" is the stud that seems to anchor the top of th regulator.
