How does the bed on my 2006 chevy colorado attach to the frame? Do bolts just screw into nuts that are welded to the bed?

    are the nuts in the frame welded? The reason i ask is because the shoulder bolt on the front left side you can actually grab the bolt head and rock it....if it is welded, it feels like the welds broke and that nut is just rocking back and forth.

Yes it is connected with shoulder bolts and nuts up inside the frame. Some have star bolts that can be taken out from inside the bed.

    If the bolt in the bed has a smooth rounded top to where you can not get a star bit or allen head in it the nut is not welded. If is does have one of the sockets described then the nut is usually welded to the frame.

2010 malibu the two bolts that hold the drivers seat rail the nuts that are securing the bolts seem to have broken loose if I take the bolts out and the nut drops how do I reinstall

The nuts should be captive and welded to the frame of the car, actually if I remember correctly, they should be studs welded to the body/ frame and nuts should hold the seat to the floor.

How do I change a tail light/brake bulb on a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado? How do I get the drivers side lens off? I have removed all the screws I can see but it still won't come off?

On back of the truck in the bed wall are 2 or 3 bolts to take out and the whole lens will come out.
You can then access the light bulbs. Good luck.

How do you change a fuel pump on a 2002 GMC sierra, 1500 HD?

Remove the bolts that hold the bed box to the frame, disconnect the rear light wiring harness and the fuel filler pipe. Set up a pair of saw horses or something behind the truck. Then have four guys to lift on all four corners and set the bed on the stand you have ready. The bed is heavy! And there is the fuel pump! Replace with the new and take care to put the wiring harness for the fuel pump back where it was. Replace the bed, bolts and connect the lights. You are ready to go! Takes about two hours if you don't break the welds that hold the nuts for the bed bolts loose. Good luck!

Torque specs for truck bed mounts

Torque specs are not important in this application, apply some thread locking compound and tighten the bolts.

45-60 ft lbs is about right for the size bolts that are used on that box.
