Question about 1992 Pontiac Sunbird
Where are the bolts at i cant see them do you have a picture of it thanks
if you look by the crankshaft pulley to the right you will see a tubular looking shaft about 1" diameter , you will notice you can't get the belt out from under this piece , it has a nut on it , once you take the nut off , you will notice it has a star shaped point on the tip of the stud , it requires a reverse torx socket or wrench to remove the stud , when you get the stud out the tube piece it can be removed , then the belt comes off , replace the belt , now comes the tricky part , fitting that tube spacer back into its spot , it can be difficult , once its in place put the stud back in , and put the nut on and tighten it , your pretty much a pro now . thanks.

start at the rear wheel on passenger side, then the driver side rear, then bleed the passenger side front then the driver side front, don't let the master run out of fluid, check at least after each wheel, bleed until you don't have air spurting noise and u have a solid stream of brake fluid out the bleeder port, u can buy a brake bleeder wrench from any parts store for a few dollars...

You can remove it WITHOUT REMOVING THE MOTOR. It's not that hard, I was able to put in a new clutch system within 8 hours. Here is pretty much what you have to do:
When looking at the engine after lifting the hood, you need to put a jack under the motor and if you have it, either another jack under the trans or what works MUCH easier is an Engine hoist.
Disassemble the motor mount on the right side of the engine compartment (When looking at it from the front of the car. Remove the tire, remove the brake pad and disc rotor from the assembly and pull the nut that is holding the drive shaft in place. You can then just tap it with a hammer until you release the shaft from the hub assembly. (You know that hunk of steel or metal that your wheel studs stick out from.) You can then undo the bolts around the transmission, then use the jack to lower the motor until the trans just clears the wheel well.
You slide it out with either the jack or use the engine hoist ( I WOULD PREFER TO USE THE SECOND JACK TO SLIDE THE TRANNY RIGHT OUT OF THE WHEEL WELL)
Then use the Hoist when trying to line it back up. Put everything back the way you removed it and there we go.
email@example.com (You can message me if you have anymore questions.)
I HAVE A NINETY ONE THAT I REPLACED THE CLUTCH IN SO THAT WOULD BE THE EASIEST WAY TO MY KNOWLEDGE.

Basically, Remove the belt. Then remove the bolt that the tensioner pivots on and remove it. It's fairly easy.You may need to remove the belt pulley to make it easier.
The problem comes as your trying to get to it. If you can't see it well or something is in the way. Like the plastic overflow tank or something like that. Then you will need to remove what is keeping you from getting to the tensioner. I did one on a four cylinder last week. The belt pulley on that one had a left hand thread. The tensioner itself should be right hand thread.
