You first have to take off the hood (2 bolts on each side where the hood meets the hinge) then take off the hood hinges (3 or 4 bolts on each side on top of fender) and after all that your hood hinges should be off. on each end there will be a metal retainer that holds the strut on the hinge, carefully pry these off with a screwdriver and install new struts, bolt the hinges back on and finally the hood

(have a friend help you lift the hood off)

Can I swap front suspension strut assembly from1997 pontiac grandprix gtp to 1996 pontiac firebird trans Am


I don't think the strut will function correctly since the grand prix is heavier in front than the Trans Am is.

Hi hou to repl.rear suspension strut and what will itcost to have it repaced at a shop. Henry mi car is a 2001 pontiac grand am se.


to replace a strut you will need to buy the whole new strut and find a way to compress the spring after you have removed the strut from the vehicle. you will need to put the spring on your new strut. the strut will usually have three bolts under the hood and about two connected to the steering knuckle. in a shop they usually charge anywhere from 50 to 80 dollars an hour and it just depends on how long it will take them to do the job for you. you can always call and get a quote.

1989 pontiac trans with 5.0 tuned port inj. Won't start all the time. Give it a shot of starting fluid starts right up and will run. shut it off and a few minutes later won't start again. any ideas?


Have you replaced the fuel filter? Sounds a bit restricted...also you may have a bit of sludge in the bottom of your gas tank...use gas and water removal treatment additives...I have enjoyed owning more than 15 Trans Ams...:) Worst cause would be fuel pump fading...:(

Where is the fuel filter located on 1989 ford escort


Open the hood and look on the passenger side nearest the strut tower. Usually held on by a plastic clip in each hose (feed and outlet) and one hose clamp holding it into the car. The new filter will come with new clips so don't worry about breaking them.

Help replacing the front struts on 89 VW Cab


You'll need to remove the upper strut mount nut. Unbolt the 2 bolts from strut to the wheel hub. Remove the strut unit from the car. You'll need a coil spring compressor to compress the spring to unscrew the strut bushing, remove the strut mount and remove the spring from the strut, install the spring to the new strut and reassemble. You'll be better off to get the whole strut, instead of the replacement cartridge, it's often hard to remove the old one from the old housing. Don't forget to replace the strut mount and strut bushing.
