Remove the drive belt, remove the 3 mounting bolts by using a socket ththrough the holes in the drive pulley. Remove the upper intake to give you room, slide off the rubber return hose, remove the pressure line and lift out the pump. Just reverse the process to instill the new pump. And fill with the proper fluid.

Back lighting is out on the radio in my 2002 Montana. Are these fixable?

Yes they are, your going to have to take it to a electronic repair shop. You can try tapping the screen to see if the screen will come back to life, the cause is the solder will break after a few years due to heat from the the current. Read your manuel to de active your anti-theft on the radio. Once you disconnect it, the anti theft will activate and when you reinstall the radio, it will ask for a radio code to activate it . Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted, be glad to help.

Radio Code

I believe you have another problem, because the radio will keep the calibration of the radio as long as it stays in your van. it will only lock if radio is swaped with another pontiac radio. to unlock it you will need a GM tech II to recalibrate the unit.
