Don't replace the headlight motors, you'll only be wasting your money. Instead, just rebuild them by buying the headlight motor rebuild kit. Check out these links. http://www.bfranker.badz28.com/headlightfix/ http://www.rodneydickman.com/index.html
Copy and paste this link into your browser. http://www.bfranker.badz28.com/headlightfix/ It will give you all the info you need for replacing the headlight motor. I would suggest purchasing the CNC milled metal gear, as the gear that comes stock with the headlight motor is nylon and has a tendency to get stripped.
its bolted to the motor
This site has a step by step guide for an older Firebird, but it is identical to what you need for a 2001. http://shbox.com/page/windowmotor.html
There is an excellent video and discussion at http://www.bfranker.badz28.com/headlightfix/index.htm They also give some diagnostic answers.
try all American classics in Vancouver, Washington they had all the parts i needed for my firebird so im sure they will have that there. here is the website http://www.allamericanclassics.com/
If you are looking for the 3rd gen they are two blue loops of wire on the harness that is just below the master cylinder on the wheel well.
Does your Firebird have a Chevy or Pontiac motor in it?If it is a Pontiac motor, you will need an adapter from Summit or Jeg's.Also, it could be a different output shaft length and spline count.
can you clean a egr valve on a 1995 pontiac firebird with a 3.,4 litre motor
The 1986 Firebird came with either a 2.8L V6 or a 5.0L V8
The gears in your headlight motor are actually grinding. My 2000 firebird did that. I just replaced the headlight motor. You can get replacement motors at pretty much any autopart store for around $50.00.
The 1986 Pontiac Firebird fan relay switch can be found on the back of the fan motor. The relay switch is connected to the fan motor by two retaining screws.
Between 165 and 225 depending on exactly which model. http://www.thirdgen.org/1987-pontiac-firebird

factory recommendation is to cut a hole in the inner fender well to access/replace it.

It is behind the Harmonic balancer at the bottom pulley on your motor.
Try "Hemmings Motor News" either online or at your local news stand.
10w30 motor oil should work nice
Change the motor. These cars are notorious for this.
My 1992 Fire Bird has a 305 throttle body fuel injected.
it will fit. you will have to use camaro frame mounts.
How do you replace a power window motor on a 1995 Pontiac Firebird? Oh man... this is the same problem with my wifes F150. If you drill through the inner door sheet metal or plastic you can access the final of three rivets. To remove the motor you have to drill out the rivets. Get a rebuilt motor for about $80 (ouch) and reassemble with the nuts and bolts that were included in the box, that replace the rivets. I think I had to cut the wires and solder up the original connector to the motr. The wires were color coded. You can try to remove the window and regulator as an asembly.. but you would be a fool. Drill. It'll take you under a half hour.
I had a similar situation with a 91 Firebird. The gears inside the motor and gearbox unit had missing teeth. I had to replace the unit. The cost was about $110 and I found it at Partstrain.com . Replacement was not hard. I had to remove the headlamp assembly (2 bolts on top and 2 underneath) to replace the motor.
should be on the driver side, right under the vin number.
