Remove the two front motor mounts mounted on the frame above the radiator.This is not a weight bearing mount it is for vibration. The engine will not move much once removed. Ratchet the motor forward using a ratcheting strap hooked to the black arm that extends above the motor located on the right side. Remove the serpentine belt. Remove the two mounting bolts on the face of the alternator and the one behind the alternator. Remove the connections and alternator. To reinstall, reverse the process. You will not have enough clearance to remove the alternator without ratcheting the motor forward.

SOURCE: Replacing dashboard lights on an 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette Van?

this will take some time but is fairly easy. you have to remove the dash pieces on that side. then this will allow you access to the instrument cluster. becareful not to wear clothing that will give off a static discharge this could short out the cluster board. the bulbs are tiny so be careful while rep-lacing them. the bulbs can be purchased at a local store the bulbs are a 194 or a 1893 in most cases.

You did not mention replacing the thermostat. That's the first thing to do. May I ask what prompted you to replace the intake gasket and radiator? Was this due to a previous overheating problem? MOre information will be helpful. Thanks.
