Once you get the door panel off how do you get to the regulator/motor to replace.

I just replaced a window regulator, found a very helpful "how to", detailed with pic's, solved the problem thanks to the guides help. The guy really did a good job.
What do you think?
#21 of 28 power window problems
Apr 11, 2009 (11:17 am)
My son's 1997 (2door)grand prix(182,000 miles)has power window problems. As electrical issues are not my strong suite, I need help.The drivers side window runs very slow and sometimes not at all. The passenger side has not worked since we bought the car six months ago. The passenger side doesn't work with either switch so I ruled out the switches and they seem to have a common fuse and the driver side has power, so it doesn’t appear to be the fuse. I pulled the fuse out and there is power to the fuse block when the driver side window switch is activated but not when either passenger switches are used. Would this indicate a bad motor, a short in the electrical system or something else?
#22 of 28 Driver's Side Rear Window Problem
Dec 06, 2009 (1:22 pm)
The driver's side rear window comes down on its own. After taking the door panel off I realize that the motor works but ony one of the tension cables move. One is loose and one is very tight. It appears that the motor is strong enough to move the window down (due to gravity ofcourse) but not enough to move it up. How do I get the window to stay up?

Help, I read your reply to above subject. I have the exact same problem you
described, can you please tell me what you did to correct? My 12V test proved window motor good, my test light lit up when applied to the prongs of the plug that
goes directly into motor. My switch works in both directions up and down, but when I plug in motor, (2 of them (both already tested)), I get no positive movement whatsoever. anybody reading this that can help please email me at jjmrsfnctc.com. thanks to all in advance and help please. Ground problem?
plug problem? dont know and need help....

I sort of have the same problem. Back window won't do anything, it slides down when it wants. I have duck tape holding it up for now. What needs to be done to fix it without taking to someone? Please help

Unless you are mechanically inclined, your best bet is to carry to a pro.
More could be revealed once you remove door panel. There is a tension spring
mounted on window regulator that keeps window in the up position. This could
be bad, the regulator could be bad, the motor could be bad. You will probably have to go through several electrical tests to include motor, switch (both master and individual door). Advise if you are capable of performing such tests. As you test
you eliminate one possibility after another until you arrive at the final definitive problem. Once found, should be simple enough to repair.

Once I determined that the motor was bad I ordered a window regulator for my 02 Grand Prix. I used the guidance from Paul's Traveling Pictures (Google "Pontiac Power Window Repair".) It really doesn't take a lot of mechanical ability to do the job. Once the part arrived and I examined it, the light came on as to how the system works and fits into the door. The best advice I got from Paul's Traveling Pictures is to cut the cables off the old regulator. This releases the window and allows you to slide it up and down by hand. After thirty minutes of work (not including the time to remove the door panel) I had the job done.

I would like to know how you replacesd the power window motor for only $34? The best price I got was $200 and it wasn't a dealership.
Could you direct me to the sources you used? How do you remove the door panel, etc.?
