    I'm replacing the window motors in my 99 bird. Just curious if anyone has a template that I could print to show where to drill the holes?

    I've never heard of having to drill new holes in a door when replacing window motors.

    The rivets that hold the window motor in place are not easily accessible. Alot of people drill holes to make them easier to get to. Once the panel goes back on you never know the holes are there. Did it on both my doors.

    As for a template I've never seen one. Just kind of eyeballed it.

    As raynor said you can easily feel and look for where the rivets are. Use a bigger drill bit so you have some space to reach the rivet in case you don't hit it dead on. There is no need for the holes to be dead on. Once you can see the rivets use a bit that is big enough to slowly eat away the rivet head. The use a punch or screwdriver and tap the rivet in with a hammer. Once you tap all three rivets out the motor should be easy to remove. Use the supplied screw and bolts from the new motor and install. I decided to go to the home depot and get some nylon nuts that match the new screws in the case the bolt/nuts get loose with vibration.

    Thanks I was able to replace them. Found a pic on Google with measurements. I used a pilot bit then a step up but to drill the holes. Come to find out there was no rivets, they were screwed on with a nut but we're the original delco motors
