Question about Pontiac Sunfire
I would just like to know what size sockets I need and what other tools are needed to replace my 2001 pontiac sunfire battery. i have looked everywhere online and there are no videos or blogs telling me what size tools i need. i have no mechanic friends to tell me what sizes i need. i just need to get my battery out s i can take it in and get a new one. i know i need a 10mm and thats about it. there are two other bolts on there that need to be taken off and a 10mm isn't doing the job

Besides the battery retainer, all I know that's left is battery cables. For the battery cables you might be able to use a pair of vice-grips and or pliers, maybe an adjustable wrench. To work on your own vehicles you need a basic set of wrenches and sockets, standard and metric sizes. Vice-grips are good if the battery cable bolt or nut has been rounded off. It's always best to use the proper tool.
Other than battery cables, I don't know what bolts your talking about? What is liter size of engine?

Did you use a special wire harness? GM connected some computer system wiring with the stereo system, so if you replace this, there will be no chime when you open your door with the headlights on or keys in the ignition...and some other warning stuff. This special harness can be bought, but it is expensive (around 80-150$). Go to electronics store and ask for one. Anyways, hope this helps.

first lift and support the car, than remove the tire.Now the fun begins first you will need to have a 3/8in.or so allen wrench to remove the caliper next you may or may not need to remove the caliper hold down bracket if so you will need a 13 to 15 millimeter wrench or socket.now you can remove the rotor if it does not come off by hand you may have to tap on the center of the rotor with a hammer to get it off.next you will need to remove the tierod if it has a cotterpin running throw the nut you will need to remove it first to get the 15 millimeter nut off.than you will have to hit the housing were the tierod goes throw with a hammer to get it lose.now you should be able to move the steering knuckle freely.next you will need a 30 to a 32 millimeter axle socket to get the axle nut off.now turn the knuckle one way or the other and tap the axle loose from the bearing.there will be 3 bolts on the back side of the knuckle may be a 13 or a hex bolt after you get those 3 bolts out just gently pry the bearing from the hub assembly.replasement will be the opposite of disassemble.if it is not like this than it is going to be a press in and you may just want to take it to you local service station unless you have your own press. hope this helps good luck and enjoy.
