SOURCE: Need to replace tail light bulb on 1996 Buick Century

Inside the trunk, under the carpet behind the tail lights will be a whole bunch of small plastic nuts, running from one side of the car to the other. Take all of these plastic nuts off, and the whole tail light assembly will come off in one large piece. Find the bulb you need to replace, and reassemble

SOURCE: 1996 buick regal 3.8L. Rear brakes loud thumping

Check for leaks in the brake lines and calipers or brake cylinders. If leaking have it repaired right away its not safe. Change the brake fluid, take the old fluid out add new fluid or have it professionally done.

I have a 1996 buick century the back 2 middle lights domy get any power would that make my right side brake light fail

A bad ground on the middle lights could cause the brake light to go out. Also, a bad ground on the brake light would cause it to go out. Check all your grounds.
A lack of power to the 2 middle lights shouldn't cause that problem. See if the wires to the middle lights tie onto wires for other lights and check right there for voltage.
Check your fuse, if the fuse is good, go on back from there to the lights that aren't working.
That's how I'd do it, anyway. Garcuda

1996 Buick Century 6 cyl. The brake lights stay on after the ignition is turned off. Where is the brake light switch located and how do I remove it?


The break light switch is down under the dash. Follow the brake pedal up and your hand will hit it. Release the tabs and slowly pull the connector out and the lights should turn off.

have a great weekend.

How do I get stuck rear rotors off of a 1196 Buick

tap on it with a hammer should loosen it up. Check for retaining clips on 1 or 2 lug nuts that were sometimes put on to keep the rotor on. Also, I have run into one time having a screw that holds the rotor on that is between the lug nuts that you will need an impact socket to get off, but hopefully you don't have that.

Also, make sure you don't have the emergency brake on as they are holding the rotor in place like a drum brake on the inside of the rotor.

I have a 1996 buick century with little brake pedal resistance

Okay....air is always the likely suspect....contamination of the hydraulic system too. Quick question, was it like this before the maintenance was done?

The other thing it could be also is the power brake booster check valve.

Let me know if it was like this before all the work.

Plus, if the parts were remanufactured, they could be faulty parts.

But let me know if it was like this before the work was done.
