Replace Tailgate Switch 87 GW

I have searched the forum and didn't see anything on replacing the tailgate window keyed switch. I have taken the tailgate apart and can see the large phillips head bolts. I can't get them loose and am on the verge of getting an impact wrench to loosen them up. My question is, even when they are loose, how do I remove the window/motor assembly so I can get to the switch?
I have obtained a used replacement switch and motor, I just can't get to them.
As of now, the switch is stuck in the "Up" position, which smokes the motor and kills the battery, so I have disconnected the power.
Any advice will be appreciated.
