Re: Black clamps for rear seat? Where do they go?
There are 2 small kinda u shaped clamps that sit on the floor. Those are used to hold the seat down to the floor of the car. You set the seat down and push it in toward the back of the car as well as down at the same time to lock it into those clamps. If you look up near the edge of the area where the seat goes you should see the holes for those brackets.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Yes, under the rear seat bottom on a sedan or behind the rear seat back on the panel under the carpet on the cargo area, right behind the seat back, screws hold the panel on, fuel pump right below it, easy to replace...I just did mine,1998 Legacy Wagon.
THE OLDSMOBILE ALERO DONT HAVE A EXTERNAL ANTENNA MAST. THE OLDS ALERO HAVE WIRE GRID ANTENNA INCORPORATED INTO THE DEFOGGER GRID IN THE REAR WINDOW.THE GRID ANTENNA HAVE A REAR WINDOW ANTENNA MODULE MOUNTED BEHIND TOP OF THE REAR SEAT BACK. THE RADIO ANTENNA CABLE GOES TO ANTENNA MODULE LOCATED TOP OF THE REAR SEAT BACK.
The fuel filter is located under the car right in front of the fuel tank.You need to have up on jackstands to get to the filter.
Mine is located BEHIND the gas tank, between the tank and the rear (axel) support ('99 Olds Alero 3.4l v6 2 door coupe)
From the trunk area. You would need to sort of lay down in the trunk ( Not comfortable! ) and look up at the back deck and you will be able to see where the screws are to drop the speakers down. There may or may not be plastic or insullation that you need to pull down first though. Hope it helps!
Jack up the front end - SAFELY... Put on jack stands so the front wheels are hanging.. Chalk the rear wheels.. Pull the tires off.. Disconect the calipers. Usually takes a allen wrench.. Pop out the old pads.. Before snapping the new ones in you need to open up the calipers.. Open the master cap under the hood.. To open the caliper I use a seaclamp.. Set the seaclamp so the on end will be against the inner cylinder & the other part of clamp on the calipar housing or mount.. Force the cylinder into the caliper - opening it.. This way the new pads will get over the roter.. Put the calipers back on & sucure well.. Repeat in rear if has rear disc..
Sounds like the wheel bearing... try jacking the car up and moving the rotor forward or backward. if you hear a grinding noise, or if the rotor moves sideways... like rock it.. then its definately that. I have the same problem with the service engine soon light... try removing the positive on the battery then waiting 30 seconds and putting back on. should reset the cpu.
look behind the seat under the rear it's a black metal rod that runs under the seat from side to side .just above this there should be a strap sticking out the back corner of the seat .pull this strap to lay the seat forward then after you lay the seat forward reach and grab the black metal bar and squeeze the two bars together the seat will release lean it forward and lift up on the seat while still squeezing the two black bars together and the seat will lift out the track
