Question Taurus Window Motor Replacement

2003 Ford Taurus Sedan
The rear drivers side door, window won't work. Removed door panel and troubleshooting shows power to the to the motor from switch. Also motor is getting warm and window won't budge.
There is only one bolt and 4 rivets. Has anyone had experience replacing these motors? Does the window regulator come out with the motor. Thanks in advance for any info.

Last Ford window motor I replaced was on a '92 F150. Unless this one is a lot different, the rivets can be replaced with short bolts and self-locking nuts. Just have to make sure nothing will interfer with the travel of the window and all the mechanisms.
