Question about 1998 Buick Skylark

I need to know how to take out the bottom of the back seat in my 1998 Buick Skylark so I can install seat covers I just ordered online. I can't figure out how to fold the backrest down either. Please help!

There are bolts at the bottom of the seat near the floor, or there are spring catches and you , have to push the bottom of the seat towards the rear of the vehicle, so you have to push towards the trunk and then upwards. Check for bolts there first hidden by a small portion of the carpet.

Check under the floor mat just under the seat for 2 bolts that hold it down or it may just take a sudden lift up at the front to pull it out of the spring clips holding it down. As to the back bit , when you have the seat out check for 2 bolts under the bottom of the back . remove them and lift the back straight up to unclip from the top.

SOURCE: how to replace a heater core out of 97 buick skylark

There is a free way to find out where it is which is what you'll have to do first, go to any parts place which should have a diagram or they can just tell you over the phone. i will tell you this, hope that it's on the passenger side because if it's on the driver side you will need to pull the dash to get to it. If it's on the passenger side like the blower motor you can just drop the glove box door down to get to it. It looks like a little box woth two or three small hoses or pipes going to it which are failrly easy to disconnect. Hope this helped, good luck!

SOURCE: 1998 Buick LeSabre - back seat removal for installing strut

Are you sure you have to pull the back seat? Those strut towers should be behind the seats and therefore should be accessible from the trunk. There might be some carpeting that is covering up the access, and it is probably a little cramped but I believe you can get to them from there.

My 1999 Buick Century has the same problem. Shanat's solution works for most cars, but not in this case. As Three4Preid wrote, the strap is already back inside as far as it will go. Has anyone found a solution for this yet???

SOURCE: i need the firing order for a 1971 buick skylark

Here is the firing order for that vehicle and engine, that is if it does have a Buick engine with the distributor mounted on the front of the engine, but if the distributor is mounted on the back of the engine then it is an Oldsmobile engine and I have that firing order diagram also if you require it.

How do I remove the headrests in order to install seat covers?


    Remove the headrests. Then slide the cover over the seat back cushion (Photo 5). Push the bottom straps through the gap and into the buckles just like you did on the bottom cushion (refer to Photo 3). Reconnect the bib panel and pull down on the rear portion of the seat back cover to remove wrinkles.

Install a radiator in 1998 buick skylark


Jack the vehicle up and then place a jack stand under the A-arm. Complete the same process on the passenger side of the vehicle. Jack the vehicle high enough to allow placement of at least a 3-gallon bucket under the radiator.
  • 2Locate the drain valve on the left hand side of the Skylark's radiator toward the bottom of the radiator. Place a 3 to 5-gallon bucket under the radiator in a manner that will allow the bucket to catch the fluid.
  • 3Turn the valve open with your fingers. If the valve will not open with your fingers use a small pair of pliers to open it. The further you open the valve the faster the fluid will drain.

    How to remove back seat in 1972 buick skylark


    Remove the seat cushion retaining bolts, detach the seat cushion and remove it up and out from the vehicle.

    Remove the rear seat back retaining bolts at the bottom of the seat back. Pull up then out to disengage the upper frame from the hangers and remove seat back from the vehicle.

    Installation is the reverse of removal.

    1998 buick skylark rear brake repair diagram


    Compare the setup with the way they are arranged on the opposite wheel. I always recommend doing one wheel at a time with drum brakes, that way you can always walk to the other side and see how the springs are arranged.
