SOURCE: real right turn signal light - Pontiac Montana SV6 2005

If the 2005 Montana is similar to the 2001 Montana, I have a solution. First you'll need a hexagonal wrench (the 6-sided L-shaped wrench). The tail light assembly is held on by two screws. You'll need the hexagonal wrench to remove them, because a normal screwdriver won't do it. I also had to use a conventional adjustable wrench to get the leverage to turn the hexagonal wrench, because the screws were in there pretty tight. Once you remove the two screws, the whole tail light assembly should come off. Mine required a little force and I had to play with it a bit, but it came off without a lot of work. There will be one set of wires that connects the tail light assembly to the rest of the minivan--try not to damage that set of wires. Once you get the tail light assembly off, you'll have to take apart the assembly that actually holds the lights. No tools should be required. It's held on by four plastic catches. Just undo the catches (easier said than done, but still not too tough) and it comes apart. Then you can pop out the old light and pop in the new light. Then re-assemble. For me, it went back together much easier than it came apart.

SOURCE: I need to change the back spark plugs in my 1998

The best way I can suggest is --
Us a long extention on the ratchet.. Also - use a unaversal joint just before the socket end.. Or maybe a combination of few shorter extentions combined with the univeral joint in between the extentions.. Th idea is to get the lenth and angle - to get the socket on the plug.. The universal for the ratchet will give you much much more ability to reach in tough places.. This little tool has been a life saver for me countless times !! ;o)

Check here to see what it looks like..

Rear end is rocking up and down at start and stoping


Classic signs of a Ford Ranger in need of new rear shocks.
Since your vehicle is a 1998, its just about the right age for
the OEM shocks to fail.
Checking your shocks:
1. take off rear wheel & check for fluid leakage from the upper 1/2 of the shock - presence of fluid
indicates shock failure.
2. get in truck bed over the axle and jump up & down. Excessive play/bounciness indicates shock
failure.

Excessive bounce of rear end.


Actually, these are struts, and you need two new ones. You do not have an air suspension unless someone added one.

You will need a spring compressor to replace. The replacement struts can be bought for around $200 (ea) fully assembled, you can but the strut only (without springs or mounts) and take it and the old strut to a shop ($15.00 a strut to change spring and mount), or you can have them do the whole thing.

Rear spring shock is broken on my pontiac montana van, year make 2002,is it easy to fix or how much will it cost,thank`s


I usually charge a base price on shocks and struts.to change shocks I charge around 30.00 or 40.00 dollars labor per pair.struts i charge 65.00 per pair.i'm cheeper than most guys because of the rural small town i live in here in alabama.but it may be your leaf spring not real sure by the discription,you could mean the shock,or the strut but it could mean the leaf spring which i think montanas have a shock and leaf spring set up not struts.i can't pull up my picture in my head too clearly,i've seen underneath hundreds of those vans just can't remember.hope i helped you with a price,don't let any body rip you off on the labor cause shocks are fairly easy to change.

I need a picture of the rear air shock compresser shown with the air lines hooked up to it. i put new shocks on ,but they still do not work. an air line was off. but i am not sure where it geta connected.


i think its in the back under a plastic side compartment -its no big deal its just a little 12v air pump for the shocks in back if you wanted to u coul by pass it and get some plastic fittings from pep boys and put air in manualy like u would a tire - i have a 98 transport it has been a real pain with tailghts burning out front turn signals burning out and one day the wife brought it in all jacked up and the pump wouldnt shut off it was a cheap plastic arm under the van broke off the axle nothing but a simple on off swtch i duck taped to the axle -fixed 1 month later the motor blew up started to get hot head gasket or somthing - now im trying to get a 2003 just regular montana on the road everything works runs good but cant get the odometer to stay on im thinking about just lookin around for some "hot" inspection stickers when this goes ill never own another gm van -i think ill go japanese or somthin these things are just plain cheap junk

Rear end looks jacked up


I assume you do not have air suspension. Check to see if rear suspension is too bouncy. just force the rear down with all your weight and watch it bounce. if it is too loose, the a shock may have broken allowing the vehicle to release to a fully sprung position. keep me posted.
