’08 Infiniti EX35

Driver side front door won’t open from outside, but still opens from inside. Already removed outside handle to check for damage, and it was OK. Took door panel off, and was going to take the inner steel panel off, but couldn’t get exact procedure for dealing with the window carriage and glass from the usual Nissan help sites, and lost my nerve in going any further. Does the window have to be removed to access the inner door, or can it just be raised. My fear was when the carriage was unbolted from the inner door panel, that I wouldn’t be able to get the bolts back into the carriage after reattaching the inner panel, as the carriage moved away from the panel when I started to unbolt it.
