Removing motor from window regulator

Window regulator broke. Bought new regulator, but not a new motor as the motor is fine. Removed the 3 screws that hold the motor to the regulator, but it won't come off. Is there a trick? How do you remove the motor from the regulator? Thanks in advance!!

I dunno but I would try wiggling it, as the gear may be catching on the body.

Probably just really stuck on there. Sometimes you gotta pry it off with a flathead. I've changed all of mine before and most of the time they just come right off after you take off the 3 screws..

Make sure you have all the fasteners removed I thought there were 4 motor screws...Can you rotate the motor? Possibly apply power to motor fwd and reverse see if it jumps out the regulator....
