hi, here is the procedure for the regulator removal and reassembly the only difference is that the new motor will or should come with new bolts to assemble to the regulator and then install the regulator and pop rivet to the door ,connect the power to the motor and raise it to about halfway or so to get at the bolts or nuts that hold the window to the regulator,then bolt in the window ,,
