Removing glass

So, The body shop that painted the my drivers door didnt put the handle/lock back to together very well. A bolt fell out and the lock fell into the door. The bolt fits in behind the glass no way for me to get to it. I have a fair assortment of tools but still no luck.

I need to take the window out, Is there a tutorial on how to do this somewhere? Has anyone done it. It seems pretty straight forward but I figured I'd ask before I tackled this in the morning.

Stupid body shop is out of business now, go figure...

You should be able to get to the lock/handle with the window being the whole way up. If not there is 2 10MM bolts that hold it in, after you have the door panel off, you should be able to see the window tracks, roll the window up or down until you can see the bolts.

Thanks Nagyhead, I was able to get one bolt with the window up and the other with the window all the way down. Window stays in...
