It is not called (drierreceiver) It"s called A (ACCUMULATOR).
You should be able to fallow your big line from the COMPRESSOR
along the left side of engine to the fire wall, will be mounted on the
fire wall. It will be about 6"x12" it will have a safty switch in it. That
will be the low pressure switch!!

The grinding noise is likely to be the pulley bearing. You are best off to replace the whole compressor and have the system recharged. For that year you can get one from AutoParts for about $200. Other parts like gas and a receiver/drier would be about $100-200 and labour about $300

How to replace the ac compressor in a 1997 grand prix

Take it to a shop and have it professionaly replaced. You will not have the necessary machine/equipment to properly evacuate and recharge the a/c system after replacing the compressor.
If you do, please make sure they also replace the recevier/drier at the same time or you likely will have no warranty on the compressor and can very likely cause further problems later on.

Low Pressure Valve 97 Grand Am

The low pressure valve is down by the AC Compressor. It is part of the aluminum manifold that connects directly to the AC compressor. It is accessible from above, but easier to reach from under the car.

By the way, is there any particular reason why you want to recharge your AC system? If it isn't working, adding refrigerant will not necessarily fix the problem. If the refrigerant has all leaked out, you probably need to evacuate the system first.
