Okay good start. after you remove the reinforcement bar with its 3 bolts, you have to easily pry up the 2 black 'push clips' at the front of the vehicle. the centers look like a plastic bolt head. they will come out if you work a slim flat screwdriver under them and pry. once they are out, you can pull the outer piece by hand. you replace them the same way. hollow outer sleeve first. followed by the center plug.
there is also 1 small nut by the fender. you can then decide whether to pull the washer hose or motor or just swing the whole thing out of the way intact.
battery exposed. good luck

1999 chevy lumina with a new battery that will not turn over. AAA can jump it and it will start and run for ever until it is turned off then it will not start again. Jumping it from another car usually...

because aaa can jump start it and you can't sounds like maybe the battery cables are curroided (dirty)
in-between the battery post and the clamps, clean the battery terminals and charge your battery as a loose conection can run down even a new battery

Chevy lumina 1995 van

I have a 96 Chevy Lumina with an electric sliding side door. A few weeks ago we started having problems with it. I went to work and when I got ready to leave it would not start. I had to have it jumped. Got home and let it set over the Thanksgiving weekend. Went to start it the Mon/Tues after and nothing. Let it set another week and still nothing. We jumped it again and it took 15 minutes to get enough of a charge in the battery to get it started. Took it to a battery store and they checked the battery and said that was the problem. We replaced the battery (it wasn't that old) and went home. A few days later it wouldn't start again. Could this problem have anything to do with the electric slinding door? if so, any suggetions on how to fix it?
