2000 Monte Carlo Wiper Motor Location?

OK - dumb question. The wipers on my 2000 Monte Carlo SS are exhibiting symptoms that sound like a bad pulse board on the wiper motor. Question is, where is the motor? There's nothing obvious on
the firewall. Do I have to remove the plastic cover/grille on the cowl under the wiper arms?
