You have to find the 3 top bolts in the trunk were they bolt to the body of the car.

Loosen them from the spindle at the bottom of the strut.

take them out. (beware brake lines and ABS Wires)

If the replacements do not come with spings you will need spring compressors to compress the springs to relivevel the tension from the strut.

Carefully remove the top nut from the mounting plate and remove the plate / spring / and spring seat if it has one, reverse to install on the new strut.

WARNING if you do not properly and safley compress the spring it might release with hundreds of pounds of force, this can kill you as well as destroy anything in its path.

It is in the exhaust pipe on the engine side of the catalytic converter, it is round, you may need a special socket to get it out.

Release the fuel pressure by loosening the gas cap, raise and support the car on jack stands,squeeze the plastic tabs on the male end of the connector,and pull the connector apart.Some models have 2 tabs,and others have 1 and the fuel line screwed into the other side.Remove filter mounting bolt,unhook tab from frame and remove filter. when you put in the new filter, make sure the arrow is pointing toward front of engine.On the line with plastic tabs, just push on till you hear a click, then pull on it to make sure it's latched.Don't forget to tighten gas cap.

SOURCE: need to replace rear struts

It depends on who does it. If you are doing it by yourself, I would allow at least a couple of hours on each side, although it should take no more than one per side. If you have air tools and a lift, it should take between an hour or two from start to finish, since removing wheels, bolts etc would be fast. Hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: How do replace heater core in 2002 Pontiac Gran Prix

i do believe you have to take the passengers side dash apart behind the glove compartment. go to autozone and get a manual or go to the library and check the chiltons manual. this is not an easy job. how bad is the leak? if its not bad these heater cores are made of all aluminum. i would buy a bottle of that radiator additive and see if that takes care of the problem first. it only cost about 5 bucks a bottle and it may permanantly fix your problem.

Just wanna know if an 06 grand prix has rear tie rods


The Gran Prix should come with one of 2 systems and they would be a strut set up or a coil spring and shock set.On these set ups they dont have tie rod ends These are usually held in place by an adjustment arm and a trailing arm.These 2 arms hold the rear axle in its stationary position.I hope that gives you an idea as to the setup of most of your newer rear axles.

Riding rough sounds like shocks.. but I dont think gran am has shocks.. could it be the moter mount that would make it ride rough and when you turn the stering wheel back and forth while driving it sways.


All cars have shocks and/or struts. Grand am has front struts and either rear struts or shocks. When these are worn, the ride would be rough. If a motor mount was bad, you may feel rocking or visually see the motor wiggle back and forth when you press and release the accelerator pedal. Motor mounts won't affect handling. Either shocks/struts, sway bar, stabalizer bar or links are the common cause

Rear spring shock is broken on my pontiac montana van, year make 2002,is it easy to fix or how much will it cost,thank`s


I usually charge a base price on shocks and struts.to change shocks I charge around 30.00 or 40.00 dollars labor per pair.struts i charge 65.00 per pair.i'm cheeper than most guys because of the rural small town i live in here in alabama.but it may be your leaf spring not real sure by the discription,you could mean the shock,or the strut but it could mean the leaf spring which i think montanas have a shock and leaf spring set up not struts.i can't pull up my picture in my head too clearly,i've seen underneath hundreds of those vans just can't remember.hope i helped you with a price,don't let any body rip you off on the labor cause shocks are fairly easy to change.
