power windows went out.. how do i get the panel off & replace..? on 1997 Mercury Cougar

the power windows started sticking one day and while they will sometimes work- ish and does make the sound in the door they wont go down more than about a half inch at a time and will not go back up.

sounds like the motor is bad. the bottom just pulls out from the retainer clips then lift up and panel should release
