this may seem remedial, but i really need help with my window motor. please do not refer me to the thread that is on this website about how to install cause i am stuck on keeping my window up. i beleive i have all the parts together right and in right. now, i have to bolt the motor to the door, (no, i am not putting rivets back in). i see how it mounts to the door, but my question is, how do i keep my window up in place while mounting to the door? by that i mean with everything put back in, my window is still slipping down. does the bolts/rivets (your choice) have to be in in order for the window to stay up? please help in anyway possible.
also, no smart comments please. i am still learning so bear with me.

I've seen people use a rubber wedge like you would cram under a door to keep it open.

I think I used a piece of wood cut to specs. You have to tight down the bolts so the gears bind with each other and it wont slip after that.

A spring clamp on the door beam will hold it up. Or a block of wood, screwdriver, hammer or just about anything wedged in there.
If none of that works for you have a friend hold it up while you install the motor.
And whats wrong with rivets? They make the job a lot faster.

I used my eastwing hammer. Rolled the window all the way up, wedged it between the bottom of the door and the bottom of the window and it was the perfect fit. I beleive it was the 22oz, so it was longer than your standard hammer.
Pretty much anything that will fit, a measured and cut 2x4 would be a pretty good idea as well.

thanks for the comments guys but i already have it wedged. my question is, what is keeping the window up after i completely install the motor/regulator? i only have the bolts to put back in but if i do take the wedge out of the window then the window falls.
