You can easily do it using updateList as Robert Dockins proposed.
updateList :: (a -> a) -> Int -> [a] -> [a]
updateList f i l = begin ++ (f x : end)
where (begin, x : end) = splitAt i l
changeGrid :: Char -> (Int,Int) -> Grid -> Grid
changeGrid c (row,col) grid = updateList updateRow row grid
where updateRow l = updateList (const c) col l
Here we replace a row with a new one, using a helper function updateRow which,
given the row, changes one symbol at position col in it. updateList is used
twice here. First it's applied to outer list and then to inner one. It is
possible because of higher-order nature of updateList. It's behavior can be
changed by suppling an appropriate function f as it's first argument.
