1955 manual window regulator removal and replacement

I am looking for the steps, in order, to remove the manual window regulator on my 55. I have the shop manual and the illustrations and reference manual. I still can't figure out what steps to go through. Does the glass have to come out? Does the "bracket" that the regulator is bolted to have to come out also. I took the regulator loose from the bracket and removed the spring retainer that holds the regulator arm to the scissor assembly, but I can't seem to get the regulator free to come out the inspection panel. Thanks for any help that can be provided.

There is a bolt at the very bottom in the rectangular cut out? Did you get that one window also needs to come out for clearance
 
Thanks Martin P and paul5456 for your replies. I have the scissor assembly and the glass out of the door. However, I still cannot get the regulator out. I have wrestled with it for an hour. The shaft will not clear and let the regulator come out. It is too long. If I get the shaft in a position to clear, the back side of the regulator hangs up on the door pillar. Does the pillar have to be removed to get the regulator out? Thanks again for any help.
