Removal
Remove the trim panel(s) to gain access to the window motor. Disconnect the wire connector from the motor. Remove the rivets that secure the regulator to the inner door panel. Remove the screw that holds the window motor tie down bracket to the inner door panel (if equipped). Manually move the regulator assembly to disengage the regulator slider from the glass lift channel. Secure the window glass in the up position with several straps of duct tape looped over the window frame. Remove the regulator through the door access hole.

If window motor needs to be removed from the regulator, secure the regulator in a vise to prevent the sector gear from moving.[1] Remove three motor attaching screws and remove window motor from the regulator.

[1] WARNING: If the sector gear is not properly secured to prevent movement, the counter balance spring will cause the regulator arm to move rapidly when the window motor is removed from the regulator. This may cause personal injury.

Installation
Install window motor to regulator using original mounting screws. Inspect the sector gear teeth and window motor teeth for proper mesh. Remove the regulator assembly from the vise and insert through the door access panel. Manually position the regulator arm slide in the window lift channel. Secure the regulator assembly to the inner door panel using either new rivets or matching nut, bolt, and washer sets. Install screw to motor tie down bracket (if equipped). Connect motor wiring to harness and test system for proper operation.

Having just done a swap from power to manual windows, there are 3 bolts that hold the motor to the regulator and 4 rivets/bolts that hold the regulator to the door. I could not get the regulator and motor out without removing the motor. What I ended up doing was drilling out the 4 rivets that held the regulator to the door, then I pushed the window out of the track closest to the lock mechanism, then sliding the window back as far as possible in the door frame. This allowed me to move the regulator and motor into a position where I could get to the third bolt through the hole in the door that the manual window crank fits through. However, watch the removal cause the warning Chump posted is correct and if you aren't careful that regulator can bite. Probably not going to brake anything (maybe a finger), but if your hands in the right spot you could very likely need some stitches.
