Try using a fetus ting spray. You can find it at any car shop. Let it sit for at least 6 hours.

Change brake pads


For starters the front and rear us disk pads and it is not hard to do. On the front jack up the front and us jack stand for safety. After you take of the wheel remove the two bolts at the back of the brake caliper remove the caliper and then the old pads us a C- clamp with one of the old pads installed in the caliper then just us the c-clamp to push the cylinder all the way in until it will go no further install new pads put back on. But before you do the next side hit the brake to push the cylinder back out. Go to other side do the same thing. On a side not you only need to replace the rear brakes every other time you do the front. The front wear twice as fast as they do most of the stopping.

How do you change the front brakes?


The front brakes should be Disc, if it is you will need to remove the Caliper bolts, the upper and lower, and the Caliper will pull away from the rotor, depress the cylinder and the old brake pads will just pop out, replace the pads and postion the Caliper back on the rotor and tighten the upper and lower bolts, it is a very simple job.

I know how to do a basic brake job but I'm beating my head. I am Trying to remove the rotor from a 2002 buick century. I removed the calipers and pads all that is showing is the rotor but it WILL NOT come...


First remove the caliper bracket by removing the 2 bolts holding it on. You may have to heat the bolts to get them loose or use a big breaker bar. Then look for 2 philips screws holding the rotor on take them out . then you should be able to remove the rotor if you tap it with an hammer

Wanting to change thermostat, not sure if I can get the housing off, I don't want to break the seal until I know for sure I can get it off. exhaust manifold runs around it with close to 1/2" clearance...


Only 2 bolts holding it on. Not exactly a fun thing to do. Just take your time and remove anything thats in your way.. Try not to take the exhaust off however. If you break bolts on the exhaust, you have a whole new can of worms. 1 more thing,,,, try to tighten the bolt first before loosening

How to change brake pads on a buick century?


Front brake pads are usually easy to do. Take only one side apart at a time. You will need a big C clamp along with other basic hand tools. After jacking the car up and using the proper safety stands remove the wheels. If you turn the steering wheel so you can get to the back of the brake calipers easier.  Now remove the two bolts that hold the calipers to the back of the wheel spindle and carefully take the calipers off. Remove the old pads, pay attention to what pad went where. Take the C clamp of slowly squeeze the piston the caliper in. Remove and replace the rotor at this time. Put the new pads in the calipers and replace the caliper and wheel. Make sure all bolts are tighten! Before trying to drive vehicle make sure you press the brake pedal many times. I hope this helps.

How do you remove water pump on 1995 Buick Century?'


I think most (if not all) 95 Centurys had a 3.1. Specifying engine size allows for a more specific answer to your question.

To remove the bolts from the pulley, first put the belt back on. With the belt on, you may be able to unscrew the pulley bolts. If the pulley still spins, you can try rotating the tensioner in the 'tighten' direction to get a better hold.

What I do to remove pulley bolts:
With the belt on, I get an open-end wrench 2 mm larger then the bolts.
I place the end of the wrench around one bolt. It will fit very loosely. I then use a ratchet and 6 point socket on a different bolt to turn the pulley counterclockwise until the handle of the open-end wrench contacts another bolt. Holding the wrench firmly, I use the ratchet to loosen the bolt it's already on just slightly, not more than a quarter turn. I then move the wrench to the next bolt until all bolts are slightly loosened. A second pass with just the ratchet and no open-end wrench then loosens the bolts one full turn. I remove the belt at this time and then fulley remove the pulley bolts.

If and of the water pump mounting bolts are stuck, do not apply excessive force and break them off. Instead, reinstall the pulley and belt. Then fill the cooling system completely and allow the engine to idle for about 15 minutes or until it is fully warm. You can now remove the belt and pulley, drain the coolant, and safely remove the stuck bolts without breaking them.

How to change a water pump on a 1999 Buick Century 3100?


the water pump on the 3.1 isnt to hard to change ...
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Partially drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
  3. Remove the drive belt guard.
  4. Loosen the water pump pulley bolts before removing the drive belt. This should help keep the pulley from turning as the bolts are loosened.
  5. Remove the drive belt. Remove the water pump pulley bolts and remove the pulley.
  6. Remove the water pump bolts and separate the pump from the engine front cover.
