this is the best answer. Hits it right on the head of what I want. What if I want the character to replace the ^M with a new line what do I enter in the replace field?

How might I get emacs to search replace

Put a mark right before the character (control-space) move to right
after the character and cut the character (control-w).  Move to the top
of the document (esc-<) and start a "query replace" (esc-%).  Yank in
the character that you previously cut (control-y).  Hit return (or enter)
type in the character that you want to replace the ^M with, hit return
(or enter) again.  Enter "y" or "n" for each case...
