1998 rear side window replacement

Thanks for reading this. I have to replace the smashed right rear window's glass (pwr windows) on our 98 OB.
I do know how to pull the panel but any other hints would be appreciated.
Didn't find any threads here so far.

There is a screw where the door unlock pull is and one under the arm rest. There may be a 3rd,cause I'm going from a 96. The rest are clips into the door frame.
Vacuum all your glass out of the bottom and as you raise the window the 2 bolts that secure the frame to the rail will align with holes in the panel. Obviously, cut the plastic there. Watch how the roller rides and raises the frame. Make sure all of these bolts are tight before putting panel back.
If you don't run into Murphy, should be @ an hour.
