Need help changing window lift motor 07 taurus

My window lift motor broke off my regulator and my driver window quit working. So typical with these cars. Should be a recall on that. Well I took the door off and I'm not sure how to put that part back in the car. Do you just screw it back in place or does the gear on the lift motor have to attach to the regulator a certain way?

Edit:
I don't think my regulator is in the right place to put it back on. When it broke off. My window was half way down and I had to push it up with my hands because it wouldn't work anymore.

Thanks. I'll just pay someone to take the regulator out. I wasn't wanting to do that much work. Was hoping I could screw that motor back in place without taking the track out but that's not happening.

One more question before I give up trying.

Can you put the lift motor back in without taking the regulator out? If you can, should the window be in the up or down position? Having trouble figuring out how the gears fit into the regulator.

Thanks!

You can, but its going to be nearly impossible because of the mount locations. Its not really that hard to pull out the motor and regulator as an assembly. If you dont have the tools, than I understand taking it to the shop.

I have the tools but I don't have bolts/nuts to put the regulator back in if I'd have to drill out the rivets. Would have to go buy some but clueless on what size I'd need.

Well, per the video, he is using a 5/16 inch drill bit, so you would want something fairly close in that size. Maybe 1/4 inch or so. They would need to be fairly short, maybe 1/2 inch long or so.

Wasn't that hard once I figured out what I was doing. Hahaha. But hey, it works now! Thanks for helping.

Doesn't matter if the window is in the up or down position. Directions said the gear needed to lock in place so I got a bit confused there. Was nothing to lock in place. Unscrew it, grease the gear on the new part, and put it back in. End of story.
