How to change rear axle on 1998 town and country


This vehicle does not have a rear axle. It has 2 spindle hubs that are bolted into a housing with 4 bolts from behind the brake assembly similar to the hub assembly in the front except that the mount is static and has a spindle instead of a 1/2 axle joined to the transmission. To remove it, remove wheel, remove 4 bolt and and speed sensors if equipped with ABS brakes.. You may need to disassemble the brakes to get at the nuts & bolts.

Where can I find the special key to remove the hub caps from 1989 Buick century ltd to change tires


In the glove box should be a card with the ID information on which "colored" key needs to be ordered from a GM dealership. Otherwise you can go to a "parts" place, such as O'Reilly, NAPA, Big A, etc., and rent a universal removal tool to remove the bolt. Make sure to install a regular bolt back in when installing the cap or you will get a rattle and the hub caps will come off very easily.

I Can Not Find The Thermostat On My 1998 Buick Century. Any Suggestions?


Locate the upper radiator hose. Follow it to the engine. Before it meets the engine, you'll notice that its clamped to a metal housing, usually mounted with 3 ten-millimeter bolts. This is the thermostat housing. Remove when engine is cool. Thermostat is inside. Remove old thermostat and replace ensuring the rubber o-ring aroung the outside of the thermostat if equipped. Good luck.

HOW DO i CHANGE A FRONT HUB ASSEMBLY ON A 1998 BUICK LESABRE??


Remove the brake caliper bracket bolts, there should be two of them. Pull the caliper assembly off of the rotor (you may need to depress the caliper piston by prying it inwards). Take the hub to axle nut off, and punch the axle inwards with a punch to loosen it up. Then remove the 3 bolts holding the hub in. One everything is removed, just hit the hub with a hammer until it falls off, clean off the mounting surface, and install the new one in reverse procedure.
