patience , and a 13 MM wrench , you gotta get your arms in there deep , that lower bolt does not need to come all the way off , the thermostat housing has a slot at the bottom for easier access , loosen it about 3.4 of the way and you can get the housing out , experience says a premium thermostat will give you grief trying to reinstall , get a regular duty thermostat .reverse procedure.

is it HOT or just not as cold. If its HOT, like heated air, there is a door problem, if its just not cool, the a/c refridgerent is low and will need a recharge, most likely the comp is leaking.

How do I remove front bumper cover?


To remove the front bumper cover you must first remove the turn lights in
the bumper. To do this remove the fog lights or the fog light covers by
removing the screw under the cover and remove the screw from the bottom that
holds the light in place. After doing this you will see a 12mm bolt behind
the light and one just to the inside of the lower grille. Remove all 4 of
these bolts(2 per side). Also remove the bolts /clips in the lower panel
under the bumper. The corners of the bumper near the fender actually slide
onto a stud that holds it in place. Just remove the bumper by pulling
forward. Sorry if this seems confusing but it is really pretty easy to do.

How do you remove the front bumper cover on a 98 honda accord sedan EX


Apply the parking brake and raise the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands.

Disconnect the negative battery cable, then the positive battery cable and wait two minutes before proceeding further (make sure you have the code if you have an anti-theft radio because you will need it after disconnecting the battery).

Working under the vehicle, detach the screws securing the lower edges of the bumper cover (use a small screwdriver to pop the center button up on the plastic fasteners, but do not try to remove the center buttons. They stay in the ferrules)

Remove the bolts, screws and plastic pins on each side retaining the bumper cover to the splash shields. Remove the bolt on each side where the bumper cover attaches to the fender.

Working at the top, detach the retaining bolts (2) securing the bumper cover to the hood latch support. Remove the cover.

When you put it back, make sure the tabs along the top edge of the bumper cover fit into the corresponding clips on the body before attaching the bolts and screws. An assistant is helpful.

Hope this helps you.

1993 Buick Century - horn is not loud enough to pass inspection.


The horn is in the front of car behind bumper. Looks like little black horn. Some cars have two right next to each other, but many cars just have one. If volume is lower, horn is failing.

How do i change a front headlight in a 98 gs400


If you are looking to remove the entire headlamp assembly, the one bolt under the bumper can be reached by either removing the bumper entirely, or just removing the bolts for the bumper and sliding the bumper out just far enough so that you can peel it back and reach that one headlamp assembly bolt.

If all you need to do is replace the bulb, you can remove the grey plastic cover behind the headlamp by twisting it off, undoing the clips (push in then out and swing them down), twisting off the bulb holder (attached to metal braided cable) and slowly sliding it out. Pushing in and twisting on the bulb will allow you to remove it. Keep in mind, space is limited and it is a bit tricky doing all of this, but it is do-able, without having to remove the entire headlamp assembly.

Remember to wear rubber surgical gloves if handling new HID bulbs and use extreme caution when reseating the holder after bulb replacement. Getting the clips back on after reinserting the holder is a bit tricky, just watch that the braided cable isn't in the way, swing the clips back up, push in toward the front then toward the center allowing them to catch under these little grooves/slits which hold them in place.
