Default Location of door lock motor ?

Does anyone know the location of the front door lock motor on 92 SSEi ?
The front passenger side door lock is acting up. I took the door panel off and probed the wires with my DMM at the switch and the Yellow, Green and Black wires going to the handle and they all seem good.
Anyone know where the motor is located ?
I couldn't seem to find it (don't know exactly what it looks like).
Is it directly behind the latch with the rods attached to it ?
What color wires feed it ?
How hard is it to remove/replace ?

Any help would be great,
Thanks in Advance,
Dutch

The door lock motors sit right on top of the latch assembly. Green and yellow wires connect to the key cylinder and are inputs for the RAC module. The correct wires are either gray and tan or black/green and gray (?).

A little more description of "acting up" would help but one common problem for lock motors is the bumpers wear out. There is a bumper kit available from GM dealers that solves that problem. The mechanical movement of the motors is transfered by a rod to the latch and connected by the bumpers. If the bumpers are worn, you can hear the actuator move but it only moves the lock rod very little or not at all.

What I mean by acting up is, that door will not lock or unlock with the factory keyless entry or the button on the door panels. I have to either use the key in that door or use the slider. That door does not respond 98% of the time, occasionally it decides to work for no apparent reason.
I read about the bumper in "Mitchell on Demand" its actually a TSB, but it does not show the removal procedure.
Is it difficult to remove the lock motor ?

Thanks for your help,
Dutch
