It is located under the passenger side dash behind the glove box. You'll have to lay on your back in the floor board just to see it. unplug the the connector, then remove the 3 screws from around the motor. You'll need to push the bundle of wires that run across it to the side and almost force it out from there. good luck, you almost need three hands
Four bolts not counting the links, I just did a Grand Prix yesterday, got the kit from Napa for $100. the new one is thicker than the old. Old one came out easily.On install had to lower the subframe about an inch and a half and had a jack under it as to not drop it if the bolt came out all the way. Now bring the car up off the jack points under the a-frames on both sides as to simulate the car being on the wheels on the ground. tighten the links first, they should be pointing straight up wheels straight. Then tighten the sway bar bushing brackets on the frame. If you do not put the weight of the car on the struts the bar will tighten at an up angle and may rub on the control arms or touch the cvj boots. Hope this helps, ask more if you need to.
To change the window motor driver side, follow the steps below:
remove 1 visible bolt left side of arm rest
Pop out window switch/door lock/ mirror adjustment control panel with a screwdriver
Use panel remover or just pull on interior panel to remove must slide it off of door handle
Slide control switch panel down through hole you popped it out of
Pull vapor barrier loose bottom right side to expose coiled spring and window motor
Tape window in the up position using masking or package tape
Mark a straight line across coil spring to make sure you can realign it when reinstall
Use tool j-38864 connect it near outer part of coil sprint where it hooks to retainer or in a pinch use pointed vice grips at same location ensuring they are firmly locked on spring ( be very careful, I'm not responsible for any injury if you are not)
Force spring clockwise to disengage it from it's retainer point
Pull spring slightly outward just enough to clear the retainer point and slowly let it uncoil counterclockwise and let it sit there
Disconnect wire connector from right end of window motor
Use your hands and push 3 plastic retainer points outward as you lift up on window motor to disengage from retainers careful not to break the plastic retainers comes out pretty easy
Install new motor into the plastic retainers, make sure filly seated ( lining up plastic Guides into holes in motor (3 points)
Reconnect wire connector to new motor
Use J38864 or vice grips to recoil spring, resit it to retainer point as before you have to be very careful in order not to hurt yourself
Remove tape from window and test up/down switch ( key must be on)
Reseal vapor barrier in place as it was prior to starting
Slide switch control back up through hole in door panel from where it mounts
Slide door over door handle
Align retaining clips to holes and push them home with gentle raps of your hand start at the top and work downward on panel

That is how to change the window motor of the drivers side of a 2000 pontiac montana.
It should be located near the ac controls. I have an 86 F-150 with dual tanks, and my tank selector switch is in the ac control panel near the glove box. If it is not located in the ac control panel, then it should be located in the dash near the door.
You have to pop off the front bezel surrounding tat area it should pull straight out towards you it uses tension clips I think there might be 2 screws down at the bottom it you pull out the ashtray or cupholder area,then remove the 7mm small bolts that hold in the HVAC controls.
Remove screws by mirror, and around the door armrest, use a flathead screwdriver to pop out the electric window/door lock controls and unplug the wire harness. Now take a bigger flat head screw-driver and pry around the edge of the panel where there are little plastic retaining screws. Pull slowly and make sure screw-driver is directly next to plastic screw. Now, pry all around the edges, and pull the panel straight up and pull than set it on the ground. You will now see the inside of your door. There may be plastic covering over the door that you will have to slowly pull off or cut. Now you will see your window. There should be a carrier rail on each side of the widow or straight across the bottom holding window in place. Re-align window to holder, (if there is any broken parts, you should get them replaced) You can turn car power on and still use and re-plug in window control buttons to help adjust the carrier rail. Now reverse procedure for replacement.
i have been having that same exact problem with my 2002 grand prix for over a year now, and when my ac is on the lower setting the it doesnt work plus the headlights and lights on my dash go out. On Max everything works. i changed the blower resistor(about $35), still doesnt work. i changed all relays and fuses related to the ac, still doesnt work. i changed out the actual ac control switch in the dash, still doesnt work. i have changed everything but the blower motor and have asked every mechanic and auto parts retailer i come across and no one knows the answer. The best answer i got is that it is probably a wiring problem like a short somewhere.
