Window problem

I found out lately my window in the drivers side( Front L) was not mowing at all with switch on, opened up the front panel and found the motor is working well, turning the geras of the windoe regulator, also i found that the actuator arm (lifting mechanism of the window) is detached from the main frame of the regulator, so I presumed the problem was the actuator arm not being pushed up or down by the motor. My questions are;
1. Is the actuator arm part and one of the main regulator, is it detachable that it can be reconnected if things like this happen, or shall I buy a new window regulator.
2. The regulator is riveted to the metal panel, how can one remove it and how will you put it back without using rivets?
Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated, is there any DIY page or web that I can access?

It is connected to the arms by plastic pieces, the plastic broke on my passenger side before.

its just plastic pieces easy to replace

the regulator easy aswell the rivets drill them out , thats the the only thing that will take long the rest its easy...also if the regulator is cracked in certain places i would replace it

if ur replacing plastic pieces u dont need to replce regulator

if u want to buy one at alleuropeanauto parts.com their pretty cheap n free shipping
i replace both my regulators when i bought my e36

thanks a lot for ur advice, will try that alleneuroparts. but will see first if only plastics are in for repair, I have not removed the regulator yet but the actuatotr arm is definitely separated from the main regulator, u think this will need a replacement? will give a feedback when done, thanks a gain.
