You will need an EZ-out and the proper drill bit for it. Be sure to use the correct one for that bolt size. They're available at any auto parts store.

Hello emaci.
There are several items that can create a clunk.
Struts and mounts, broken coil springs, ball joints, tie rod ends, sway bar links and bushings and control arm bushings.
The most common problem I see in my shop on these cars are sway links and control arm bushings.
I would suggest you take it to a competent front end shop and get it checked over.
I hope this helps you.
Take care........KL

How to replace windshield wiper motor in oldsmobile alero


should be fairly simple. mark the wipers position while they are off for reinstallation. remove the wiper arms by taking the nuts off the bottom side, and gently pry up on them and work them loose. with the hood up, remove the wiper cowl (plastic that runs along the bottom of the windshield). the wiper motor will be on the drivers side. the wiper linkage usually either bolts on directly to the motor shaft with one bolt. take that bolt/nut off, remove the mounting bolts on the motor itself, unplug the motor and remove. to install reverse process and put wiper arms back to the position you marked them.
