If the fixture has screws you can access from the outside of the fixture, take those out and check for a pigtail that may be tucked under them. If there is no pigtail, there may be a hole that the wire is threaded through in the sheet metal. If there is none of that, then you may have to drop the headliner. Make sure if when you replace them that they are flat against the metal, use any grommets that are included and you may want to seal all the holes with clear silicon sealer.

no you should be able to get to the screws when you take off the lenses because the screw nuts are inserted into the cab and the wires are put threw a hole under the mount

Headliner for 1999 Buick LeSabre does not have a cardboard backing. What do I need to do to replace this headliner myself?

What kind of backing DOES it have. The fabric of the headliner cannot simply be glued to the roof frame. GM used a foam shell on many of its vehicles. Removal of the headliner must be done carefully to avoid breakage of the shell, although a small crack or two often is of no significance. Remove the old fabric by peeling it off the shell. This will usually leave a lot of the foam padding still clinging to the hard foam shell. This can be removed fairly easy with a vegetable brush, being careful not to gouge into the hard foam shell. There will still be a slight residue of the padding on the shell, but this is not a problem. At a fabric center, purchase a sufficient size piece of headliner fabric in a color that complements your interior. Ask the salesperson there to assist you in selecting the correct spray adhesive for the job. Dry fit the new headliner to the shell, leaving some extra on all sides that will be trimmed later. Fold back one half of the headliner fabric and apply the adhesive to both the shell and the back of the headliner fabric. Wait the specified time for the adhesive to prep, then, with assistance (its easier), roll the headliner back to the shell, ensuring no gaps or bubbles. Once you complete one half, fold back the other half and repeat. Cut any access holes needed (dome light, sun visor). Trim excess to edge of shell. Do not wrap the headliner around the side edges or it will not reinstall correctly. You may need to wrap the front and rear edges depending upon the trim on your interior. The edges will be hidden by the door and window trim. Reinstall shell.

Procedure to r&r oil pump

To remove the oil pump you will need to drop the oil pan to gain access to the oil pump. Difficulty depends on what engine is in the van and clearances available to remove the pan. But, basically an easy process if you have any mechanical skills and the correct tools for the process.
Be sure to prime the new oil pump before you install it or start the engine.
