    there might be screws in the bottom of the panel and the arm rest if not then the panel should pop off by putting a door panel tool behind the panel and pop the plastic clips out

    Better leave this one to the glass shop because removing the trim panel is the easy part! It gets worse.
    Without the skill and tools may save money also. Replacing a window regulator is NOT a job for a novice.
    Even with pictures and instructions!

    Randy stop!! It's not nearly so simple as the earlier answers might suggest! I see that you're in our area (Meyers Auto Tech in Kennewick)... please swing by the shop and I'll print out the procedure and some images for you that will walk you through it. There are a couple of discreet clips and screws that if not dealt with properly will result in lots of broken parts and great frustration! Please call or stop by when you can, ok? Scott
