Keep your window handle close, as you might have to raise and or lower the window by the regulator to get the right position for the glass to slide off the track. You will reassemble it the same way by moving them back and forth. .... PS. don't forget to grease your track with white lithium grease before reassembling."

There is one thing that is not evident, or at least it wasn't to me, at the base of both the door handle and the window winder is an escutcheon, That escutcheon is in two pieces, one slides over the other, though you can not see that it does. It takes two people to, one to push the outer escutcheon back to allow the second person to see the little pin in the shaft which must be tapped out to get the handle off so the door panel can be removed."
