1994 Saturn Window Motor

Anyone know how to access the window motor to a 1994 Saturn for replacement. The maintance manual I have is very unclear and it looks like the door has
to be removed and then disassembled. Is this correct?

You should be able to get the motor from a local parts shop. I never seen anyone take a door off to replace one. You should be able to remove just the inner door pannel and have access to it.

Not sure about Saturns. Most cars, you have to close the window, and tape up the window to keep it from falling as first step. The motor is the preventer of downward window movement. Some manufacturers chose to rivet the actuator to the door panel. And rivet the motor to the actuator. Two different size rivets. One can use bolts/nuts/washers. Using the right size hardware is critical for window operation clearance. There's a heavy duty spring that aids the motor. It may take a finger or two when removing it, if not careful. A heavy bench vice will aid disassembly and reassembly. Get new side panel and insulation plastic retainers. There's a tool for removing these during disassembly of side panel from door. You don't have to buy the GM version, some parts houses carry similar that works just as well.
