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.

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.

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.

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
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.
Remove the plastic trim panel under the glove compartment on the passenger side of your Riviera.
Loosen and remove the mounting screws that hold the blower resistor in place on your Riviera.
Unplug the wiring harness from the old blower resistor and then remove the resistor completely.
Plug the wiring harness into your Buick's new resistor. Also tighten the screws to hold the resistor in place.
Reattach the negative battery cable on your Riviera and tighten it with your socket set.
