Nothing "special", but there may be torxs bit bolts on the caliper. I've had mine a really long time so to me they arent special anymore.Other than that it's all wrench and socket stuff.

I need to know where the fuel filter is located on my 2004 Pontaic Grand AM and do I have to have special tools to change it myself? I already have the fuel filter. I have changed fuel filters in the...


If its a "paper" type cartrige filter, the fuel pump sits inside it, in the fuel tank.

If its metal, most GM bodies have the fuel filter under the car, drivers side, in front of the rear axle.

Hope this helps.

Replace front wheel bearing


The front wheel bearing for your Impala is an integrated wheel hub/bearing/ABS.
The whole thing gets replaced. It should look like the one off my Bonneville; Bearing.

Remove wheel/tire. Remove brakes. Remove rotor. Remove axle nut. Press-out axle shaft*. Unplug ABS connector. Remove 3 bearing bolts.

*To press out axle, you may need a special tool from an auto parts store.
Don't forget to put the heat sheild back on during reassembly, and the axle nut need to be very tight.

When I make a left turn there is a noise coming from the front drivers side wheel, someone told me it was the boot, where is it


Hello rkayet,

They may have been referring to the CV axle boot. When the CV axle boot gets damaged dirt and water get into the CV joint and wear the internal parts, this typically causes a clicking noise when turning.

Unless you have the tools to rebuild the CV axle it's best to buy a rebuilt CV axle (sometimes called a half shaft) from your local auto parts store.

I need to know if special tools are needed to replace the drivers side CV joint on my 2000 Ford Windstar.


I would buy a rebuilt axle half shaft from your parts store and replace. It is cheaper than CV, boot. grease, and seal And, you have new CV's on each end of axle half shaft, not 1.
