My wife has a 2002 Grand Am and for some reason the driver side window stopped operating - it's in the up position but won't go down. Since the motor makes no noise I figured it may be the fuses but all seem fine. My thought is to replace the motor. Does anyone have detailed instructions on how to replace the motor?

You need to do a window reset. Its in your owners manual
This is a quote from the workshop manual
Note ? A driver side window will not fully close automatically under following the conditions: ? The battery has been disconnected during vehicle maintenance or for other reasons. ? The power window main switch connector, or driver-side power window motor connector has been disconnected. ? Carry out the following procedure to resume operation: 1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. 2. Press the driver side power window main switch and fully open the driver side window. 3. Pull up the driver side power window main switch to manual-up position to fully close the driver side window, and keep holding the switch up at the position for about 2 seconds to complete initial setting.

The most common problem with Cabrio auto windows is the Window regulator. Each window has it's own. My wife also owns a 2002 Cabrio, that had a mis-behaving window driver window and the passenger was locked in the up position. After inspecting the drivers window, I found one of the cable roller guides was broken, causing the cable to snag when using the window open / close, and resulting in the window seeming to have a mind of it's own. I had a local garage order the regulator for me, and then I disassembled the drivers door and installed the new regulator (problem is now solved). The passenger window was bound up, I also had to remove the regulator and let loose the tension in the cable system by carefully removing the cover over the cable roller. This window works fine now as well.

I had both window regulators die in my 2002 Jeep grand Cherokee, once while i was operating the automatic driver's side window and another time the passenger side just dropped down and stayed there while it was parked at work and I came out to no window. The Dealership charged $200 to fix it. Ouch.
