remove the door panel. be very careful and make sure you get all the screws out. Should be maybe 2 on the bottom half of the door, and 2 on the top half. one is right by the handle, which is the one i forgot the first time i took my door pannel off. carefully pull the panel upward, and outward at the same time. Once the panel is off, disconnect the controls, and remove the light from the panel. Remove the plastic cover very carefully, it will tear, just keeps noise, and air, and the elements out.
There will be 3 screws, they are torx bolts, once you pull those 3 out. They are located middle of the door towards the right side. The motor will drop down a little bit. disconnect the wires for the motor, and wiggle the motor off of the regulator. the crown vics have a decent size hole to get into the door panel, you can also remove the speaker if that would help you do it. other than that, it just lining up the new motor into the car, pushing it into the regulator, and putting the 3 bolts in, make sure they are snug, and not cross threaded. put everything back together, and your set.

there are two main designs. One uses a bearing and flange at the backing plate area, release that and you can pull the axle and bearing.
the Other design is call a c lock axle. Inside the carrier, there are 4 spider gears. Two are splined to the alxes and two idle on an idler shaft. Remove this shaft, and then you can push the axle shaft inwards about an inch or so.
this will allow you to remove the c shaped retainer that is engauged with a groove at the inboard end of the axle.
So, now the bad news: often the c lock axle uses the axle shaft itself and the inside bearing race...which means if the bearing has failed, you need to replace the axle also.... Inspect carefully. Metal temper is the issue and once that is comprimised, you need to replace.
