I think any dealer would have these on hand; if my memory is working right, these did have to be a specific class and will need to be torqued carefully to avoid stripping the female threads.

SOURCE: how do I change the rotors on a 2003 buick rendezvous?

You will find two bolts on the back side of the caliper that go into two small rubber boots. Likely the bolt heads on yours are torks head and need appropriate socket to remove. You need to retract pads in order to easily remove caliper from rotor. Retract further with a large "c" clamp before re-installing pads. Lube slides that attachment bolts go through (I use white grease for this) before re-installing them. Be careful to not cross thread bolts when putting them back in.
Good luck, and don't forget to rate this answer!!!

SOURCE: 2002 Buick Rendezvous alternator removal

This will take some time, but really not that difficult. First, get a small section of two by four and jack. You will use these under the back of the engine to "rotate the engine forward". This means to shift the engine forward so that you can reach the bolts and such on the back of the alternator (and spark plugs if you want..
Next, remove the air hose from the air filter box to the engine, you will have to remove a couple of cables to to this.
Remove the bolts from the engine struts (those wishbone looking things on the front of the engine). This will allow the engine to move.Then, remove negative battery cable, wrap in electrical tape. Put car in neutral and use the jack and board (see above) to shift the engine forward.
Now, remove the electrical connections from the alternator, there are two, one forward connected by a bolt and one plug in on top. There are three bolts on the alternator. One in the front going across and two in the back. You can just feel your way with your hand, there is enough room to get a socket wrench back there.
Remove these three bolts and shift the alternator toward the firewall and just let it sit, you still will not be able to remove it yet.
Next, remove the idle pully. It has one bolt, very easy. Set aside. Then remove the three bolts that hold the alternator frame to the engine. There are two on the side, near where the idle pulley was and one in the back, near where the two bolts you took out of the alternator. The whole assembly should easily come out now, including a metal section under it which is there to allow you to hook chains to the engine. Remove all these.
Now, you have to remove the three screws holding the power steering pump. They are accessed through the holes in the wheel of the power steering pump. You will have to run the pump, feeling with your fingers, until you find each bolt. Now that the unit is loose, you have to look down behind the unit to find where the power steering lines run down. You will see them "locked" into two rubber sections which hold them in place, simply pop them loose from there and you can now move the whole power steering unit. DO NOT REMOVE THE HOSES FROM THE POWER STEERING PUMP. You can remove the low pressure side if you want, its is the right one with a rubber section connection to the pump. Move the whole pump, with lines, to the left and down. You should be able to slide the pump out now. Some have recommended taking out the black electrical block to the left above the battery and/or the window fluid container, but I didn't need to.
Put new alternator back and reverse the process. Time consuming, but not technically difficult.

Replace headight assembly on 2005 buick lacrosse


The procedure to replace head light assembly on buick lacrosse is as follows:--- 1)To remove and replace the headlight assembly you will need to remove 1 retaining bolt on the top of the headlamp assembly and 2 sliding retainers at the rear. 2) The carefully Pull up the retainers and that will release the headlight assembly and allow you to pull it out the front. 3) When installing the new headlight assembly make sure you have it lined up correctly before trying to install the retainers, don't force them it may get cracked . 4) Both the cover and the bulb are removed by a standard twist to the counterclockwise and replaced by a twist to the clockwise. 5) Now to the dim light. You have to release the entire light assembly before you can remove the screw-on cover to reach the light. 6) On the rear edge of the light unit closest to the engine is a white locking tab. Pull that tab up just to the point where it releases…pull too far and it locks again. 7) Next, locate the other locking bracket which is a metal bracket in the center-rear of the light assembly. This bracket is held down by a screw. 8) Remove the screw with a 10mm wrench. Lift the bracket just like you did the white bracket. You should now be able to pull (or pry) the entire light unit forward a little. Depending on the size of your hands this might be enough. Note:-- The turn signal is part of the headlight assembly on your 2005 Buick LaCross. 9) To replace the headlight bulb you need to remove the front bumper cover. 10)To release the plastic bumper assembly to give you a little more space. This is done by removing two expansion locking pins, one that holds the little plastic strip down between the bright and dim lights and one that is located inside a rubber bumper on the engine side of the light unit. 11)To remove these locking pins, pull or pry up the little tab in the center of the pin. Thanks.

How do you get the headlight and cornerlight assembly out of a 2002 Silhouette? There is one clip that attaches them together that I cant get.  Also, the corner lights are attached and can't get them...


The headlights are held down by two wing nut plastic bolt on top and the corner lamp is held on by one wing nut bolt from the headlight assembly. Remove the plastic wing nuts from the headlight and corner lamp, once all three wing nuts are removed, the headlight can be removed by pulling straight up and take note of the clips at the bottom of the headlight to where that will slide back into the body frame. The corner light assembly also just pulls straight out and take note to where the clips slide back into the body frame when re-installing the units back together. Take care not to pull to hard that you damage the wire harness, remember to disconnect the wire harness from the light socket at the back of the units. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to try to explain in another way if i didn't make sense. It's harder to explain then to show.

Replace headlight bulbs


Open the hood. On the top of the headlamp assembly are two 3/8 inch bolts. Remove them. Between the two (down in a hole) is another 3/8 inch bolt; it's very long, as it screws into the bottom of the assembly. Remove it, too. Slide the entire assembly forward. It's tricky because the edges get caught on the surrounding structures, but it will slide out. Remove the round rubber stopper from behind the assembly to expose the lamp. Rotate the lamp slightly and remove it. Carefully lift the retaining clips and slide the lamp off the plug. Be careful not to touch the glass on the replacement lamp; oil from your skin can cause halogen lamps to fail. Slide the new lamp onto the plug until it clicks, then put everything back in reverse order.
