Question about rear window regulator assembly

My left rear assembly is shot. When I look on RockAuto, I find some assemblies listed for 7 passenger, some for 5. But most postings do not make a distinction. Does it matter? Can someone who has done this job help? I have a 7 passenger Envoy XL and do not want to end up with the wrong assembly.

The rear doors are different, with the LWB being larger, so it would make sense that the 2 models use different window regulators. I haven't looked at them when I've had the panels off in my EXT, so I'm not 100% sure.

Thanks for the advice. Part ordered. My next question is .... the window is up and the motor just grinds when activated. That is fine, since I don't have the new part yet. But how do I get the window to go down without the motor to remove the broken regulator assembly? Can I force it down somehow so that I can then free the window from the bracket on the assmebly? It did not seem to want to go down easily but maybe I am not pushing hard enough?

Mine did the same on a front door. It didn't make a difference. I was able to take it out. IIRC, the new one is in the up/closed position as well.

Okay, thanks. The Youtube video was showing it down halfway for installation. There is less room to get at the bolts to loosen the regulator brackets from the glass in the closed position, but I think that I can still get at them.
