Window motor removal question

Is this a rivet? Says it should have bolts in these locations but this is what I have.

Yup, you'll have to drill it out.

A previous owner may have done that?
Just drill it out and replace it with a bolt, nut and lock washer.

I've done a few in the past that were riveted. You shouldn't have any trouble drilling them out but if you do, use dynamite...

Original was rivets. When you replace them use nylon locking nuts and do not over tighten.

The motor comes out after unscrewing 3 bolt. The track comes out after drilling the rivets. I just needed to change the motor so I'm good now, it's done and working fine.
