'99 olds silhouette rear struts

If you have better than average skills you sould be able to tackle it. You will have to remove 3 nuts from the top and 2 bolts on the bottom. Yo will also need a coil spring compressor that you can borrow from parts store (autozone). The most dangerous part is the spring coming lose but its fairly easy t do in your driveway with regular hand tools.

Estimate of labor charges for replacing alternator on a 2002 Silhouette.

Typically the Silhouette and the Transport are the same vehicle. I spent about 45 minutes to replace the Alternator on my former Transport. It depends upon the prevailing Labor Rate what you will have to pay. I would guess somewhere around $75-$200 fro Labor alone.
