It should have bolts holding down the back of the seat. If you can get to these, remove them. Most CAR seats do not have bolts in the front - only tabs that slide into slots in the floorboard. Once the rear bolts are out, you should be able to slide the seat loose and remove it. There will be a wire plugged in underneath or on the seat belt assembly that you will have to unplug before removing the seat.

Where is the heater resistor on a 1996 buick century with a V6


You have to replace the blower motor. They don't use resistors anymore, each motor speed connects to a different spot on the motor windings to control the speed.

Drivers side power seat will not move. You hear the motor and seat tries to move but is stuck. How do you free the seat? Did not see any obstructions under seat.


The plastic gears in the motor break off a couple teeth. Dealer will try to sell you a new rack. You can also replace the motors and shafts, or you can replace just the gears. I just got done replacing one shaft and have the other one ordered. This seems to be the cheapest option.

A 1996 Buick Century Costom with a wet floor (a puddle of water)in the back seat. I have mystery water in my passenger back seat. I have poured water on the car to dupicate rain and find the leak. The door...


You forgot to add WIND to your experiment! Poured water is not driven water and sometiomes the pressure and VACUUM of the moving vehicle is the problem. As you drive a vacuum is created around any area not directly exposed to the airflow. This can "pull-up" seals that are tight when you are still, and also there is a possiblity that the water came from underneath your car!!

My blinkers sometimes dont work? looked at the fuse and it seemed okay but i replaced it anyway..seemed to work fine for a couple months now its doing it again...could it be an electrical problem or turn...


Try replacing the Flasher Relay. It has 2 relays, one for the turn signals and one for the hazard lights. The one for the turn signals is located Front seating area, driver side, under dash, behind instrument panel, mounted on passenger side of steering column.
The hazard flasher is located Front seating area, driver side, under dash, above kick panel, mounted in top of convenience panel.
Replace the Turn signal flasher.

My 1996 Buick Century has a cruise control issue


There are many components in the cruise system. That system does not work with vacuum. The first thing I would check is the multi-function switch (the turn signal, wiper, cruise switch arm). On the back side of the turn signal arm is a plug that plugs into the steering column. Make sure that it is seated, or plugged in firmly. If you have had any work done recently on the steering column like turn signal switch replacement. That plug my have been disconnected and not reconnected completely. These multi-function switches do go bad. They are easy to replace though but a new one will cost over $100. Also the wire harness in the steering column do sometimes break off. The next thing I would check is the control unit. The cruise control unit is on the drivers side of the engine compartment right by the strut tower and the brake master cylinder. It has a cable attached to it going to the throttle body. Find the wire-harness plug on the back side of it and make sure that it is seated firmly in place. Considering the age of the vehicle My first guess is the multi-function switch. I have had to replace mine twice in my '96 cutlass, but I have also had to replace the wire harness in the steering column as well. It could be the switch on the brake pedal, or the vehicle speed sensor. I hope this gets you started in the right direction.
