    Bravada Owner,


    I don't have an answer for you, but maybe you can help me.  My mechanic said I might need a new transfer case motor.  My AWD light was on and off for a while and now is mostly on.    What has led you to think you need a new transfer case motor?   I have 112,000 miles on my vehicle.   Thanks for any input.

    Yep, these Bravada's go through the transfer case motors AKA encoder motors. Also, you may want to check and or replace the transfer case module, located inside passanger side at the front floor side kick panel. Best thing to do is have a computer scan performed. I am currently dealing with the same issue, AWD light on and AWD does not engage. I just has a new transfer case motor installed 6 months ago. I also noticed the AWD module mentioned above, on the passanger side clicks upon starting the vehicle. Hope this helps you out a bit.

SOURCE: heater core removal 2000 oldsmobile bravada

i belive there is what looks like t perferated line in the plastic where the heater core is that you are suposed to cut to gain access to the heater core. i have never done this but i know several people who have you just need to make sure you get the access door resealed if you go that route or it may affect your heat. remember if you remove the dash instead of the other method you will have to have the a/c system emptied since it also circulates through that box.

We need to replace the fan motor on a 1997 cavalier- what is the easiest way?


If it is the heater fan motor, I believe on that you have to actually remove the dash to gain access. Remove the speaker grill on top and there are a few torx screws under that. Remove the side access panels, when you open the car doors you will a panel on each side, they are just held in there by pressure and small nubs on the panels, you will find more torx screws. In the glove box on the top towards the front you will find a few more torx screws, also in that area there are two 10 mm bolts that are somewhat hidden but accessible. After all the bolts and screws are removed you can pull the dash cover off, becareful because on the passenger side, the airbag has a paper type cover on it, you don't want to damage that. From there you should be able to gain access to the heater blower on the passenger side of the vehicle. Good luck.

4X4 gear shifter pulled off


It is held on underneath with 2 small 8mm head bolts. They probably rotted and broke off.. You will have to remove the 2 bolts and the big bolt on the side of the transfer case and remove the whole bracket if they are broke off. Only 1 might be broke because I believe the bottom hole on the shifter is slotted and the top one has the hole. Either way you will have to look at it from underneath. Hope this helps. Cobra..

I want to remove the right front fender and would like to know where all the nuts and bolts etc. that need to be removed are and the easiest way of going about it?


I just did this.
Remove the fender liner
Remove the mud guard

There are several 6mm flange bolts with 10mm heads.
3 along the inside of the hood
1 behind the top of the door accessible with the door open
2 on the bottom of the door behind the mud guard
2 behind the bumper cover, the headlight is attached to one of these.
There is a screw holding the end of the bumper to the fender. Remove it and pull the cover away from the fender. There is a large plastic clip inserted into the fender next to the two bolts that holds the bumper cover but should release when you pull the cover.

The headlight has two dowel pins that insert into the fender, removing the headlight may be better but you have to remove the bumper to get to some of the headlight assembly bolts. There are 4 bolts holding on the bumper that are accessible through the turn signal holes. The bumper will "fall" about an inch and sit on some collar bolts so it can be lifted off without one side falling (a neat feature). The turn signal is held by one Phillips screw accessible through a special hole on the inboard side of the bumper with your longest Phillips screwdriver.

Where is the blower motor located on 2000 Dodge


The motor is located just under the glove box on the passenger side. I removed the glove box then the panel below the glove box. I also go ahead and pull back the carpet and the padding under the motor. It is held in place by 3-4 bolts that take a 7-8 millimeter socket. I used a swivel extension for the back bolts. The motor with the fan blade attached is a tight fit, just keep wiggling and pulling it should come out. Try to remove the old motor without cracking the fan blade, because sometimes the replacement motor doesn't come with a blade.

I removed the plastic lens from the front passenger side turn signal to replace the bulb and now the plastic lens is loose. It is only held on by one screw. How do I get the lens cover tight


short of buying the part the scew goes into. try filling the hole with a small amount of body filler,Bondo. alow it to harden and drill a small hole into it to accept the screw. the drill should be about 2/3 the diamater if the scew.

When you start the car the 4 wheel high and 4 wheel low indicators light and flash four times,


To make the lights stop blinking and actually engage the transfer case you have to maintain the electric motor that engauges the transfer case. the contact points inside get worn and corroded and wont allow enough power through to rotate the servo. The motor is located on the transfer case and is held of by 3 bolts, remove and unplug. Any good 4-wheel drive shop can fix it for you for about $50 or you can take it apart and clean the contact points inside and relubricate it yourself in about 15 minutes. reinstall and your 4 wheel drive will stop flashing and actually work.

AWD on 2003 Oldsmobile Bravada


possibly, but the most common problem is the engagement motor located on the rear of the transfer case. Motor looks like small wiper motor and can be replace fairly easily.
