Drivers door window off track 98 GMC Safari

I have a 98 GMC SAFARI and the drivers window is off track and I just can't seem to get it back on. Normally this wouldn't be a huge deal but the passenger window motor is shot so it won't budge and the A/C is out. I am dying every time I have to drive anywhere and paying someone isn't even an option right now!

What's your question? If paying someone isn't an option, you'll need to fix it yourself. Go to an auto parts store and buy a Haynes manual for your vehicle. It will cost around $20. It gives step by step instructions for almost any repair.
You'll need to remove the inside door panel to access the window. When you do, you'll likely find what caused it to get off track. My guess is the window regulator is shot (probably frayed cable). I've had that problem on the wife's 98 astro van. It's a relatively easy fix if you are somewhat mechanically inclined and own tools. If not, you'll have to suffer through the heat. Sorry.
