SOURCE: serpentine belt

You actally have to take the Motor Mount off. The way I did it was to remove the Front Right Wheel and the Plastic Guard. There you will see the Motor Mount and the Bolt that needs to be removed. Once removed, the melt piece betwee the bracket and engine pops out. Then you can replace the belt and put everything back together.

SOURCE: how do i remove water pump on 1998 buick riviera

u must jack up the car underneath the oil pan to support the engines weight. Then remove the motor mount. Then you can remove the last two bolts on the water pump.There are two holes in the bracket that is bolted to your engine block.These holes allow u access to the last two water pump bolts. If you loosen the upper bolt of the bracket itself u can swing it forward to get to the bolts on the water pump more easily. Do not completely remove the bracket! It's a tight space, but you'll extend the repair time if you remove the bracket versus swnging it forward.

SOURCE: How to replace headlight on 99 buick riviera

Hello. I happen to own a '99 and had to do the same. You can access the back of the bulb by removing your air filter and hose. This will free up room for you to reach the bulb.

Motor mount passenger side rusted out

Sounds like you need to get that replaced. If the metal that the mount is attached to is also rusted you need to get to a fabricator or body shop to have that replaced too.

My belt for the supercharge broke can I still drive the car?? 1997 riviera

Yes, you can still drive the car. No real damage will occur, but performance will be poor. It's not impossible to change the belts, just time consuming with the way the belt is run around the motor mount bracket.

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.

Can you tell me how to replace the passenger side head light bulb on my 1997 buick riviera?

On a 1997 Buick riviera the light bulbs simply plug in from the back side of the lens. You will have to twist the bulb pod from the socket. Change the bulb,wipe it with a clean cloth and twist it back in.
