Question about 2002 Buick LeSabre
Tried to remove rear mount and was unable to remove the top mount nuts because they could not get a wrench on them . Removed the bracket it mounts to but could not remove the two parts together because there was not enough room . How do I get around this ?

I'm not sure what motor you have in that Buick, but my wife's 92 Old's water pump went out and I had a heck of a time with the bottom two bolts. I talked to a mechanic and he told me to put a piece of wood on top of a floor jack, slide it under the oil pan and lift the motor off it's mounts to gain easier access ,and after I did, with a lot of patience I got the job done.(About 2 hours, a 1/4 turn a a time) I hope this helps

You shouldn't have to pull the axle.
Do one side at a time so you always have a reference to go back to, even if it is a mirror of it.
Always do both cylinders though, or the other one will leak in a couple of weeks or so. They both do the same amount of work though so their time is gone.
Not familiar with your exact model, but maybe you can loosen the backing plate ( that the cylinders bolt onto ) and give yourself a bit of room.
You often do have to remove the shoes and handbrake lever to get them out easily.
Work safe and careful :)
