2003 Honda: front passenger..I tried to roll it up..controls

This answer was rated:

My 2003 Honda Odyssey front passenger window made a loud pop when I tried to roll it up. Then it just slid down inside the door and is unresponsive to up or down controls. What do I need to repair?
IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH THE CABLE FOR THE WINDOW REGULATOR HAS SNAPPED. YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO HAVE THE REGUATOR REPLACED. IT IS VERY EASY AND CAN BE DONE BY YOU IF YOU HAVE THE TIME AND THE PATIENCE TO DO IT. YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE DOOR PANEL AND THEN THE PLASTIC LINER AND THEN THERE ARE 7 10MM BOLTS HOLDING THE REGULATOR ON AND 2 10MM BOLTS HOLDING THE WINDOW TO THE REGULATOR. LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE GOING TO ATTEMPT THIS YOURSELF AND i WILL POST UP BETTER INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOU...

Yes I am going to try to do this myself. Detailed instructions would be greatly appreciated. Should I be able to find these parts at my local part store or might I need to order them?
