Help replacing a headrest motor


The motor for the passenger seat headrest on my "new" 2000 BMW 525i BMW is broken. I have a working motor in my "old" 1997 528i and I would like to move it to the new 2000. Is this something I can do my self? I am fairly good with simple mechanics (I can replace a window regulator etc.) so if the motor is a "plug and play" type thing I would like to try it myself rather than pay to have it done. Any advice? Anything I am likely to screw up on the electrical system by attempting this?
