    Here is a link to a web site that will have the instructions that you need. You will also need to know how to use a rivet gun, I just did one this week. The window frame is held in by Torx bolts that are accessed from the front and rear of the door. Once the frame is out, you will have to drill out the rivets that hold the regulator to it. Not exactly a no-brainer type of job, and you have to be careful not to damage ( break ) the glass.
