The factory radios usually have 4 small holes. Two on either side of the front radio panel. There is a tool that you can get from a parts store for just a couple of bucks that you insert into the for holes at the same time.(There are two U shaped tools, one for each side) When you push them in it will release the pin holds and you can slide out the radio.

How do I get to the blower motor on a 1984 oldsmobile toronado?


Your Buick Riviera's heater fan is powered by a blower motor, which in turn is powered by a blower motor resistor. The resistor is a small electrical component that also regulates the fan speeds of the blower motor. Like any part, the blower burns out from time to time and has to be replaced. Replacement blower motor resistors cost about $50. It will take you about 30 minutes to install a new one in your Buick Riviera.

Things You'll Need

  • Socket set
  • Screwdriver
    • 1

      Open the hood and disengage the negative battery cable on your Buick Riviera using your socket set. You will need a 10mm socket to loosen the battery cable bolt.

    • 2

      Remove the plastic trim panel under the glove compartment on the passenger side of your Riviera.

    • 3

      Loosen and remove the mounting screws that hold the blower resistor in place on your Riviera.

    • 4

      Unplug the wiring harness from the old blower resistor and then remove the resistor completely.

    • 5

      Plug the wiring harness into your Buick's new resistor. Also tighten the screws to hold the resistor in place.

    • 6

      Reattach the negative battery cable on your Riviera and tighten it with your socket set.

How do you replace the water pump on a 1995 buick riviera


Place Jack under engine with wood to hold it up. Remove uper engine mount(leave loose in engine compartment. Loosen pulley bolts. Remove belts. Remove alternator bolts and lift out of the way for easy access to power steering bolts. Remove 2 power steering bolts using access holes in pulley. You should be able to accessall of the water pump bolts now by moving things out of the way as you go. The two larger bolts toward the radiator can be accessed through the two holes in the motor mount ( you will need a short socket on a 1/4" drive rachet). You should be able to get the pump off now. Installation is much easier than removal.

How to replace accessory serpentine belt on 1996 Riviera


The supercharged 3800 engine uses two accessory drive belts. The outer belt drives the supercharger. The inner belt drives the generator, power steering pump, coolant pump and air conditioning compressor. All driven accessories are rigidly mounted to the engine. Drive belt tension is maintained by the spring loaded belt tensioner. Each belt has its own tensioner.
Remove: Place a jack with a block of wood on it under oil pan to support engine. Caution : Be sure the wood block extends past the width of the oil pan to avoid damage. 
Torque axis engine mount bolt where it connects the mount to the engine mounting bracket. 
Electrical connector from crank sensor. 
Engine mounting bracket lower stud and lower engine to allow stud to clear frame rail.

Spacer. Remove bolt from torque axis bracket and lower engine. 
Electrical connector to crank sensor.
