How can I get a template to determine where to drill holes in inner door panel in order to remove power window motor.

Actually, the car is a !972 Grand Safari Wagon

By now there would be no such template 40 years later. I think it is safe to drill some exploratory holes, after all ya gotta do somethin, don't get intimidated by it. Estimate the locations of the holes by comparing the new motor mounting holes with what pattern shape needs to be drilled. Also, look real hard to make sure there are no marks like a tiny indentation made by GM to tell you where to drill. I have seen that on GM cars before.

Thanks for the reply and encouragement. Looks like that is my only solution. As for as the dimples, my shop manual states they were added six years after my model.
