SOURCE: remove battery from 99 yukon

your gonna need either a 5/16 or 8mm wrench.  loosen the negative battery cable (black cable) off first and move it to the side where it wont touch the battery or anything metal.  then loosen and take off the positive (red) cable off and then just loosen the battery hold down bolt and the battery should left out. just like a top post battery make sure you dont touch anything metal with the wrench while loosing the bolts.

SOURCE: How do you remove the interior panel on a back

Other than screws for armrests, there are op-in plastic holders that must be pried out of their moorings. A simple special pry-tool can be had for a few dollars at auto parts stores that will prevent some of the damage that normally results but the plastic parts often break when being pulled out so check if the store has a 'Help' display with specialized parts for just such an event.
You will find a precut plastic film once the panel is removed and pulling these from their sticky glue will often distort the film and make it a chore to reinstall well; use care and patience. This film is necessary to divert rainwater from motors or speakers so it must be reinstalled. If made as most, the adhesive stays sticky so the film will normally hold well enough to remount the film.

SOURCE: How do remove headlight assembly on 2005 Buick

I just changed the low beam bulb in a '05 Buick LaCrosse and found it really rather easy after researching it. I found no reason to remove the grill and the bumper cover, BUT you do have to remove the top 4 fastners that hold the grill assy to the radiator support, then you can work the headlight assy forward enough to work it out of the socket and turn it down so you can get to the bulb pockets on the back side. NO NEED to remove it all, just loosen it and gentley pry things forward enough to get the light assy out. ALSO> My supplier said his Wagner lighting book called for a 9006 bulb, but the car I worked took a H11. About 4x the money over a plain ol 9006 bulb but it might save someone picking up the wrong bulb. I hope this helps someone else out....Best of luck to you all

SOURCE: How to remove spark plugs. 2006 buick lacrosse

The front spark plugs should not be a problem. The rear are accessed with use of an "engine tilter". It can be purchased at many auto parts businesses, I purchased mine from NAPA. However, you may have to order one on-line as it is "an unknown item" as many of us are unaware that it even exists and I am sure that the mechanics and techs want to keep it that way. My cost in 2009 was in the $35 to $80 range for the tilter. It may sound a little scarry using it because you loosen the upper (literally right up on top where they are most easily accessed) mounts, but it is easy. I found that no electrical, air flow from filter, exhaust, etc., had to be loosened or removed. You only remove one side and install the tilter. Next you adjust the "tilter" to remove tension on the other bolt. Finally, simply screw the adjuster toward the front of car until you either have enough room to access the rear plugs or until you run out of bolt threads at which point you have as much room to do the job as any tech/mechanic. As usual, remove the old plugs (I only do one at a time which also eliminates crossing plug wires) and screw the new ones in several turns by hand to make sure that there is no cross threading. Once you are satisfied with your level of maintenance, simply adjust the "tilter" back to a point where the loose motor mount accepts the bolt to front frame, tighten it, remove the "tilter" and reinstall the second bolt. It really is that easy, but you will want to protect your paint with a proper cover as you do have to lean heavily against the fender or fenders. Oh, by the way, many mechanics skip the difficult-to-access plugs, knowing that when they, or it fails, you will be back. Enjoy, you will feel like a real pro, knowing that your job was done correctly and is complete!!!

I have a 2012 buick lacrosse my battery dead,how do i open hood

One thought would be to hook-up battery charger on starter positive battery cable. I don't know how hard that would be, but, one of the positive battery cables should go to starter motor. If the hood release is electric, hopefully, you can get it charged up enough to open the hood.

Another thought would be to remove front grille, see if you can reach the hood release mechanism, that way, I don't know if you reach it or not, Just a thought?

Battery tips for Buick Lacrosse 2005

If battery has a very low charge or is dead, you may not be able to remove thee ignition switch or shift out of PARK.
If you are not going to drive your vehicle for 25 days or more, remove the black, negative (-) cable from the battery. This will help keep the battery from running down.
Caution: Batteries have acid that can burn you and gas that can explode. They contain enough electricity to burn you. You can be badly hurt if you are not careful.

How to remove radio in a 2015 buick lacrosse

You first need to remove the paneling enclosing the radio. This may be secured with some screws ( look for them ) and the rest of the paneling is usually held in place with clips on the back side. Pry gently on the paneling and pull forward and the clips will release. The radio is then held in place with 4 screws. remove the screws and the radio will pull out

How do I remove the crankshaft position sensor on a buick lacrosse(2006)

Jack it up, put jack stands under the body, not the frame. remove the passenger tire and inner fender cover. remove the 2 frame bolts on the passenger side and lower it as far as it will go. remove the drive belt. remove the balancer blot and pull the balancer. remove the crank sensor and replace. If you don't have an impact gun, you will need to remove the starter also. This is to hold the flywheel from spinning, to remove the balancer bolt.
