Replacing Window Guide

I have a 1993 Dodge Dakota with electric windows. The window on thew passenger side does not go up straight. After pulling the door panel and inspecting the mechanism, I noticed a small hole on the rear edge of the window…about 4 inches from the top edge of the glass.

After calling my parts house, my hunch was right and there is supposed to be a guide in that hole. They have the part.



now the question!!! My manual does not cover the replacment of this part. Can any of you give me the steps that I need to replace this window guide.



Thanks
