    I am looking to see how the struts and mounts are attached. Going to attempt this myself and want to know what is involved

    Want to know the process for replacing the rear struts and mounts (pretty sure the mounts are busted). If I can see an exploded view it would make it easier for me.

The struts are very easy to pull off the car, but as to taking the strut apart that is best left to a professional, it requires very expensive special strut cartridge installing fixtures

Back end knocks loud when i drive over bumps


that is usually a back strut mount or or possibly mounting tower. To replace the strut mount I highly recommend taking it to a repair shop. However if you chose to do it yourself first raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the tire, then you will notice a set of larger size bolts, carefully rmove them. Now if memory serves you will find the 3 mount bolts in the trunk compartment, carefully remove them. Remove the entire strut assembly from the car. Compress the spring and remove the strut mount from the strut. Installation is reverse of the instructions

How to replace rear view mirror on 98 buick century


Most cars have the rear-view mirror and the little metal mount that it slides into. If the whole thing has fell off it is an easy fix.
Go to an auto parts place and tell the counter person you need the glue to glue your mirror mount to the windshield. They will know what to give you.
Then you clean the spot the mirror was hung with alcohol. Let dry
Then follow package directions. Basically you do a dab of glue on mount and press to windshield and hold for a bit of time. Then you wait like 12-24 hrs before sliding the mirror onto the mount.

On the other hand if you are asking for a new mirror you can get one from the Buick dealership - parts dept. or a junkyard or just attach any kind of rear-view mirror. Sorry I can't help you if you have a wired mirror.

Rghow do you put brake fluid in a1999 buick century


Under the hood is the master cylinder. Look at this picture:
http://s2.photobucket.com/albums/y48/ZeeVert/Other%20Stuff/?action=view&current=CenturyBrakeCylinder.jpg
It's back by the firewall, driver's side, near strut tower.
It is a plastic reservoir with a black screw-on cap. The cap has yellow lettering and probably tells you what brake fluid to use, or check the owner's manual. The plastic reservoir will have some marks on the side for "FULL". Do NOT overfill. Do not mix different types of fluid. The brake fluid will be something like "DOT3" or "DOT2".

Replace the rear view mirror


Gently tap the base of the mount upwards. I just replaced mine and I thought there was a cover over the winshield mount, turns out it is just pushed on to the wedge that is mounted to the windshield. Good Luck, webree
