  6. Disconnect the battery negative cable.
  7. Remove the door glass bolts.

With all of that said, you should be able to "hold" the glass in the up position using a few zip ties once you get the door panel off. That will at least get you home until you can replace the regulator at a later time.

Were you able to get the door panel off ok? If you need further advise, feel free to ask.
