It is a right handed thread, meaning lefty-loosey, turn it to the left.Some of them do get hard to turn. Hope this helps.

Changing passenger side turn signal for 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix. There are a few bolts I could undo, but I'm afraid I'll break the car. The manual doesn't really give good directions, so...


There are two phillips head screws on the fog light/turn signal, unscrew them both and pull the unit out, the blinker connector is located on the back side... twist it out counter clockwise and blam! There's the bulb, slide a new one in, and make sure she works.

2005 pontiac sunbird oil filter location


Your looking for the location of your oil filter on your 2005 Pontiac Sunfire. They use a fabric/paper file which is located on the top/front of your engine. If your vehicle has an Ecotec engine, then open your hood. stand directly in the center of your car looking toward the windshield. And when you look down, it's at the front of the engine over to the right a bit. You need a certain tool, or Vice grips to turn the large plastic shaped cover off (Counter clockwise to losen). When it is loose, and you take off the cap. the oil filter will come out with it, you pull it off, and replace it with a new one.

Location of oil filter on a 2007 pontiac g6


Oil filter location for a 2007 Pontiac G6. First open and lift the front hood of car. Its some what right from center on the engine about 9 inches from the radiator. All you will see is a black cap with black plastic nut in the center. You will have to buy a special tool to attach to your socket wrench to remove the cap. Turn it counter clockwise to remove it. Inside is a filter attached to a plastic part and rubber o - ring. The filter is NOT enclosed in a metal casing. Remember how it is positioned as you take it out. Pull off the old filter. Remove the old o - ring. Place new o - ring in place. Place new filter on plastic part and place it back inside the engine. Make sure it is placed in the same way it came out. Screw on plastic cap by hand most of the way. The tighten with special tool and socket wrench clockwise, but not too tight. This is now complete. Now you can drain out the old oil from the oil pan underneath the car. Remove hex screw with long wrench for more leverage. One to 2 hours later place hex screw back in by hand and tighten with wrench. Now add about 4 1/2 quarts of 5W30 oil only. Check oil level on dip stick. Add more oil if necessary. Job complete!!!
