My window on the driver side is down, I need to replace the regulator, but I can not raise the window to take out the screw that hold the glass. How do I raise the glass to get to the screw

    You need to cut the cable in the old regulator. It's a very common issue, but this is the only way to raise the window.
    If you have suction caps they would be a great help to hold the window up while you are working on the regulator.
