Just went through this myself yesterday. My window worked on a cable pulley system, there are 8 bolts that hold on the window regulator which includes the motor. My motor and regulator where fine. The glass is attached to the regulator by two plastic clips. The front clip is $42 the rear clip is $38. It is easier than you think to fix. I hate working on cars but the dealer wanted $350 to fix it so I took 45 minutes and did it myself. This site has a great step by step diagram. http://www.a1electric.com/grandam.htm !

Happened to our 1999 Grand Am 2Dr. Dealer wanted $529.00 to fix it. I purchased the whole Window Regulator, including the motor, new off Ebay for $65.00 delivered.

Cheaper to buy the complete Regulator with plastic sash clips than pay a dealer $50-$60 for just the plastic clips. That is if you can find someone to just sell you the plastic clips.

The other posting the A1electric site is what I used as my picture guide. Helped a lot.

There are guides that clip on the glass, one is on the upper rear of the glass,and the is on the lower front. Most of the time the one on the rear breaks causing the window glass to tip forward. You can remove the old clip & install the new while the glass is out of the track.And then reinstall the window by seating it back in the channel.

Order a new window regulator, and you need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

Realigning a window on a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix requires the door panel to be removed. After the panel is off the window can easily be put back on track.

One of the best ways to price a new side window for your Pontiac Grand Am is an online windshield quote. Many shops have instant quotes available online and can be found with a Google search. If you search for "auto glass quote" and enter your info that should be a good indication of the price. I ran a test quote for the LA area and found that a side window for your Grand Am will run about $340, but that will vary depending on where you live and the exact power window you are looking for.

There are a couple of different reasons as to why there would be power window failure in a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix. One reason could be a faulty fuse or it could also be a short in the window motor.

In order to replace the electric window motors on a Pontiac Grand Prix you will need to unscrew the Torx screws on the door, life it back to remove the plastic pieces. Remove all connectors, and the plastic covers.
