SOURCE: im going to buy a 95 caprice classic but the air

Yes. Potentially a very expensive one.

If you love the car then get an expert to check the airbag fault out before you buy the car (preferably a franchised dealer, see below); if you're lucky then it's just a loose connection plug but even fiddling with one of those yourself can set the airbags off, instantly transforming the car into an economic write-off.

Even if there is just a loose connector then bear in mind that airbags generally have just a ten year design life and when they degrade sufficiently the diagnostic check that the car runs when starting up will also cause the warning light to illuminate. If the cause is purely due to age, then all of the airbags need replacing and once again you're into expensive territory. The airbags can be disconnected and left in place (potentially dangerous) or removed completely, but both of the latter options will be checked by insurers if you're in a crash and if discovered will invalidate your cover.

Note that if serviced at a franchised dealer, the airbag service life on many models can be extended. As an example, Volvo state that for vehicles manufactured between '93 and '96 can be re-certified to fifteen years, and with sufficient diagnostic testing models made from '87 to '92 can be re-certified to twenty years. This is possible based upon the results of the diagnostics and the manufacturer's ongoing test experience with their own products. General Motors (Chevrolet) will almost certainly have similar guidance for their products. If the airbag system passes the manufacturer's specified checks then the dealer can reset the diagnostic system to extinguish the warning light.

All you can do is to either accept that you may be saddled with the costs of airbag replacement in the near future (not always available on older models, so check beforehand) or to buy a Caprice which is much younger or which has a service history showing that the work has been done already.

I hope that this hasn't put you off buying the Caprice, although the remedial work may cost more than the car is worth, it's still cheaper than a new car and you'll have something a bit more different and characterful than a new model. Airbags are one of many reasons that prices of older used cars can often be little more than scrap value. Old cars are cheap precisely because they need increasing sums of money spent on them to keep them safe, roadworthy and legal. New cars need less maintenance but lose a lot of money by depreciation (US= falling residuals).

Rear window wiper problem


I had a 94 wagon, and have a 99 wagon, and 2001 wagon. I think what you need there is a new rear wiper arm. This is about 44 bucks at getsaturnparts.net. The problem is getting the old wiper arm off without breaking the rear window. The corrosion between the wiper arm and the motor output shaft basically turns the metal into one piece, which may well explain why your arm spring is not holding the arm close to the window. Also explains why you cannot find used saturn rear wiper arms or rear motors on ebay. There is a small sliding lock at the base, but having moved it aside you will find the corrosion will not let the arm go anywhere.

Having done this twice, my approach as follows:

Get a new wiper arm

Take a hack saw and carefully saw the top of the wiper arm off exposing the motor shaft end. After spraying WD40 or other corrosion remover on get a small gear puller and pull the arm off the shaft. Use never seize and slide the new one on.

It's in the tank. You'll have to drop the tank. Use a jack to lower it. Becareful you may have to siphon off some gas if it is too full...you will splash fuel on yourself...(not that I've ever done that).
