Default Replacing 98 Civic power window regulator?

The car already has power windows but the drivers side motor is starting to go. Is this just a simple swap type of install? I'm assuming I'd just remove any bolts/screws and slap a new one in place of the old one?

Here is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) which shows how the window regulator is.

You should check that the power window switch is okay before you replace the window regulator. Also, try cleaning the rubber channels with q-tips and rubber alcohol, and then apply silicone grease or spray to the rubber channels; this may help the windows go up and down easier.
