Disconnect your battery (make sure you know radio security code if you have one) Unbolt starter, lower it and remove wires. Some twisting and turning may be required to get it out. Reverse process to install.

In my 95 buick riviera, i got a fresh battery to car, it wouldnt turn over , but has to be done with a jump.... have anyone had this problem before? how can i go about trouble shooting it?

I would go through the steps starting with the battery, is it good? Just because it is new, doesn't mean it is good. Check the voltage, 13.5 minimum, water, electrolyte, if all is good, check the terminals, they have to be squeaky clean and tight. Check the cable on the starter, if still nothing, get under the car and whack the starter with a hammer, It could be the solenoid. Hope this helps.

What is a list of things that could cause a 1997 Buick Riviera supercharged to not start from most likely to least? The battery is fine and so is the starter.

I'd look for a check engine light or pending codes first-Just because you CEL is not on doesn't mean there isn't a problem that the computer hasn't made a note of-

Then I'd replace the crank sensor (common issue on GM's)-listen for the fuel pump priming when the key is turned on (it is fast, only 1 1/2 seconds)-then check for fuel at the fuel rail up top.

Can you tell me how to replace the passenger side head light bulb on my 1997 buick riviera?

On a 1997 Buick riviera the light bulbs simply plug in from the back side of the lens. You will have to twist the bulb pod from the socket. Change the bulb,wipe it with a clean cloth and twist it back in.
