Sometimes there is a threaded portion in the plastic bit that goes into the lock mechanism. This bit of plastic strips the thread and causes problems.

SOURCE: Buick Regal brakes

28-DEC-08
Sometimes (when changing the brake calipers on disk brakes, or changing wheel cylinders on drum brake systems) the mechanic will clamp a vise grip pliers on the rubber hose to prevent hydraulic fluid from dripping out.  This can break the internal fiber lining in the rubber hose.  Then the fluid flow can be blocked.  When you press the brake pedal, fluid may not flow to the wheel or wheels.  As you press harder, the fluid may suddenly flow through the line, causing the brakes to suddenly activate.  
Or an even more likely problem, your brakes drag (stay on) and get hot, because the fluid cannot flow back to the master cylinder when you release the brake pedal.  In other words, when you press the brake you force fluid through a partially blocked rubber hose.  But the return of the fluid (backwards through the rubber hose) is caused not by pressure, but just by equilibrium, a balancing act.  Well, if the line (rubber hose) is blocked, the fluid stays in the caliper or wheel cylinder, and the brake is still on, and the brake gets hot.

SOURCE: Low Coolant light flashing on 1996 Buick Regal 3.8

The low coolant sensor should be located in the passenger side radiator tank, You need to take it out and clean the sludge off of it for it to work right. Or you can just unplug it and forget about it, the light will go out and it won't cause any problems.

R/F door trim will have to be removed. Most likely you will find linkage disconnected from the inside latch of the outside door handle. You might even find a broken piece of the door handle requiring replacement

SOURCE: signal bulb on 2003 buick regal

To change front turn signal –
open the hood; look in back of headlight; two white clips; pull straight up, and then whole headlight comes out including turn signal; it is all one unit; remove rubber cover, then you take bulb out of unit. Mechanism that bulb fits in will need to be turned clockwise (looking from the front) and pulled to get it out of the larger unit holding all lights. Be sure and put rubber cover back on before re-inserting the two white clips.

Front door handles wont work from outside


You have a rod that goes from your door handle to the latch opener, inside the door panel. It has probably came off. You will need to take off your door panel to get to it. There are just a few screws on the corner of the panel. Remove them and then you will need to move the plastic and foam in the inside of the door. After this, you should be able to get to the rod. Hope this helps you.

Door will not open on Buick Regal 95


you need a long screw driver, 10mm, phillips, torxs bits, trim panel popper and a pocket screw driver. if you can hear the actuator working thhere is a plastic replacement boot. pop up the switch cover from the fron. remove the rear reflector/light remover 10mm bolts(3). remove the torx and the open handle cover. then use the trim panel popper and remove the panel. then take the long screw driver and follow tow lock rods to the ned then twist the screw driver. two more rods need to be removed at the back. one has a adjustment. do adjusted it! then remove the torx 30 latch in the outer door part. remove the latch. then two torx 10 on the actuator remove them. at this point you will see a pastic rod that is not connected because the boot came off or the actuator is bad. install the new boot in the latch then take the place rod or the actuator push it into the boot at a 45deg. then swing it down. o ya make sure the gears are aligned top all of the way to the right and the bottom to the left i think. its the same as when you pull it a part. also do not over tightend the actuator to the latch. have fun
