Try using a white lithium grease and spraying down the upper strut mounts if it is the mounts that are making noise, some times its also the lower ball joints squeeking from a lack of grease normally because the ball joints are sealed and ungreasable

SOURCE: Buick Regal brakes

28-DEC-08
Sometimes (when changing the brake calipers on disk brakes, or changing wheel cylinders on drum brake systems) the mechanic will clamp a vise grip pliers on the rubber hose to prevent hydraulic fluid from dripping out.  This can break the internal fiber lining in the rubber hose.  Then the fluid flow can be blocked.  When you press the brake pedal, fluid may not flow to the wheel or wheels.  As you press harder, the fluid may suddenly flow through the line, causing the brakes to suddenly activate.  
Or an even more likely problem, your brakes drag (stay on) and get hot, because the fluid cannot flow back to the master cylinder when you release the brake pedal.  In other words, when you press the brake you force fluid through a partially blocked rubber hose.  But the return of the fluid (backwards through the rubber hose) is caused not by pressure, but just by equilibrium, a balancing act.  Well, if the line (rubber hose) is blocked, the fluid stays in the caliper or wheel cylinder, and the brake is still on, and the brake gets hot.

SOURCE: 1999 Buick regal Security light on. Won't start.

I had the same problem with my 95 Lesabre. The owners manual says to take the key out, and wait 3 minutes(until the light goes off). It should fire right up.

SOURCE: signal bulb on 2003 buick regal

To change front turn signal –
open the hood; look in back of headlight; two white clips; pull straight up, and then whole headlight comes out including turn signal; it is all one unit; remove rubber cover, then you take bulb out of unit. Mechanism that bulb fits in will need to be turned clockwise (looking from the front) and pulled to get it out of the larger unit holding all lights. Be sure and put rubber cover back on before re-inserting the two white clips.

How to change front struts of 1995 buick regal?


Go to Autozone and buy 2 front strut "cartridges". Then rent their strut cartridge installation tool from their loaner tool program. You can change both sides in about an hour without even jacking the car up-be sure to have a 15/16" wrench on hand for the nut and follow the directions that come with the loaner tool. Also spray a little penetrating oil on the nut a few days before you do the job. There is no reason to change the entire strut assembly unless something has failed.

How do i change the front struts on a1995 buick regal grand sport


Use a spring compressor to clamp the spring down (Be Careful). disconnect strut from lower control arm, and the 3 or 4 bolts under the hood ontop of the strut tower. Remove strut and spring, remove spring from strut (Still Compressed), put spring on new strut (Still Compressed), Install bolts under hood, aka strut tower, reconnect lower control arm, slowly uncompress the spring and make sure it seats properly. Take it an alignment shop to get your front end re-aligned.

I have a 1999 buick regal. front end noise


Most often the problem with front wheel drive models and this type of symptom ends up being a loose or broken motor/tranny mount. I'm sure there are a few shops around where you are at that might put it on a lift and check undernethe for free or a small fee. Also, if you have a floor jack and have the time you could check yourself, just look for anything that seems broken/cracked, and look at ALL the rubber componenets for wear and tear.

Front end noise.


its a very good probability that is true. have the front end looked at any other wear such as sway bay link pins, lower ball joints, and especially tie rods. be prepared for the struts($300-450 depending on where youre at) and a really good idea to have an alignment done at the same time. cheers

1999 Buick Regal power steering defect when turning left.


Could be a few things....binding on the upper strut mounts if you have front wheel drive...the rack and pinion, or the steering knuckle.

Best thing to do would be to take your car to a reputable garage (not the one that "fixed" your car the first time!) and have it checked out.
