If the window has screws or bolts holding it to the regulator track, take them off, push window up, then wedge something against the glass to hold it up.
Since you have the door panel off, can test the motor by jumper wires or cables from a battery set nearby. Just hook jumper wires from battery to motor terminals, if nothing happens reverse the leads on the battery, if still nothing motor is bad.
Reversing polarity to the motor is how the switch can make it go up or down, with only two wires to the motor. I mean, if hot wire to motor on one wire, the other wire carries the power to ground. When you push switch the other way, the wire that was putting power to the motor is now carrying that power to ground through the switch. That's why you can reverse the battery jumper leads to the motor to check both up and down operation.
Hope I haven't confused you. Post back for more (?confusion?).lol.

Double check all your fuses and and wires in connection with your power windows. Unfortunately though pontiacs are notorious for the power window motor regulators to go out, my buddy had 99 firebird and both windows had the same problem, and I previously owned a 98 sunfire and both window motors went out within the same week.

SOURCE: drivers side electric window

if the motor is bad and its not a problem in the wiring, you are gonna have to remove the motor and pull or push the window up by hand, then you need to support the window to keep it from falling down. if the motor bolts in you can bolt it back in to keep it up. if not you can sometimes use a heavy duty zip tie around the track arms to hold it up. i would not recommend the duct tape i see a lot of people use. but thats your call. hope this was helpful.

SOURCE: check automatic transmission fluid 2001 pontiac sunfire

You need to raise the vehicle and start it. Remove the plug near where the passenger side driveshaft comes out. The head of the plug is 7/16. Trans fluid will stream out of the hole when the engine is running when the transmission is full, If fluid doesn't run out, fill the trans until fluid runs out. The fill cap is red and it is on top under and around the air cleaner box. If you need more help let me know.
