I appreciate your reply regarding removing the window motor.
I have the factory manual, but in my opinion it is poorly written. I mean, I can certainly read but the instruction is given with poor illustrations and is so chopped up that I have to jump back and forth between 25 pages of information. The truck is a C1500. The Auto-Zone info did not help me, but thanks.
After 3 hours today I became so disgusted that I gave up and just popped the panel back on the door. The motor is fastened on with rivets and I was tempted to drill them and let the motor fall free inside the door, to enable me to remove that inner steel panel but decided not to do that. Glad now that I did not.
The last window motor I installed was in the right door of my 1992 Chevy van.
I think it was the worst beating I ever had! I got the dang thing out, but just barely. At least it was not held on with rivets, nor had the inner steel panel.
I guess I will have to live with a window that stays up.........pg
