Help Alfa Spider / GTV 916 window motor removal

Hi everyone - I'm new here, but not new to Alfas, this 916 Spider being my 6th....which means I'm accustomed to Alfa elecrtical foibles.

My question is - my electric window motor assembly is just clicking and getting hot, so I suspect it needs removing and replacing. How do I remove it?

I've also got the bouncing lock thing going on which I see there are lots of posts about around here....but feel best to start witht he window.

I've got the door panel off ok thanks to other posts here.

Thank you.

I did this on Friday and have a spare one for sale if interested.
After having removed the doorcard (as you've done), you then need to remove the glazing after first having removed the rubber seal that runs along the top of the door. I prised this off carefully with a screwdriver. All bolts are (amazingly for Alfa) 10mm except for the ones holding the glazing to the window regulator that are 8mm. Once this is off, it should be removable after disconnecting two connectors...

Hopefully you will get it sorted!
