I see you did not tape the window up as I adviced you. That is why the window fell down but, as you already know a screwdriver works too. Don't worry about snapping the cables, they were going out anyways. I tried different things (lubing, bending, etc) to avoid buying a new regulator but, once they are gone, they are gone! One more warning, if you have tinted windows, BE VERY CAREFUL, the window regulator will scratch the film. Don't ask me how I know...
