i did not have to un-rivet anything. when i say assembly - it's the WHOLE piece: windows guides, motor, and cables. everything. 4 bolts holding it in place. i just lowered window some, secured with masking tape to the outside door, loosened 2 bolts holding glass to the regulator, popped 4 bolts holding guides in place - then it justfolds inside the door and comes out. new one goes in and done.
i can't believe there's that much difference in design between the 2 yrs. i looked at my chilton, and the new body style begins as of 1999. but, usually, they don't do that radical a change. who knows.
btw, if you smoke, installing rain guards is a great choice. from that on, you just keep window cracked open all the time, without riding that motor up and down. they don't last, i had both of them replaced this year, and i bought my truck march 2007 with only 58K miles on it.
if that's what you have, i am not surprised. once again, sorry, and apologies for unthoughtful remark.
