Cannot remove window regulator from door, need help to fix it! How?

Cannot remove window regulator from door, need help to fix it! How?
Well guys, i am trying to fix my rear right side window regulator but i have some issues in here i cant get this well done without help.

My window regulator has started making some noise like some sort of "click clack, click clack" when i push the button....i mean....is this motor problem or what !?!?! Just does this noise and doesnt move...so i guess its time to repair...

I have a problem....my window its all way up...ok...so i cannot even thing on follow any DIY....i found in net....cause it wont work..

So....window all closed...no way to remove window....so i tried to remove window regulator with my window closed...

I started to remove the motor...i cant...have a bolt knocked out...i mean...i cannot remove one bolt.....so i cant even remove the motor alone...

I suspect my window regulator has been fixed once in time...motor cable/wiring is changed...i mean...they fixed and i guess they changed wires...i guess its PRE or POST restyling motor....

Well after removing all bolts....i can....from the window regulator....and since i cant remove my window....i tried to rotate the window regulator to remove it....i cant....the regulator its stucked on the window....well its kind expected...since the window and regulator are longtime friends...

Now, after these long story....what can i do....i dont even know what is the main problem...motor or other thing...can i remove the regulator in pieces...i mean...try to get it by parts without cutting any cable ?!?! And if i had to cut any cable, is it possible to fix it ?

I mean, i wanna do anything that wont need too much money to fix....after all i may have to also replace motor or window regulator completely....but if i can fix it...will do it...

Thats from my left door but in the right door i have one like these...same issue...i guess its post restyling...cause they changed wiring too..







From my right door, the one i need to fix.....the holes are damaged...i guess last time they fix it...they made it wrong...








Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!!!!!!!!
