SOURCE: 1994 buick lesabre heater core removal

The heater core is located under the dash, in the center. The container holding the core looks like a black plastic box. Remove the ash tray for easier access. You may have to also remove some other covers under the dash. You must first drain the radiator then you have to disconnect the hoses. There are two hoses connected to nipples of the heater core that go thru the center of the firewall. Remove the screws that hold on the cover to the heater core. Then you should be able to get the old one out. There might be a couple of other minor steps but I'm sure you can figure them out. For re-installation just go in reverse order to put it all back together.

I just Replaced a Low Beam Light bulb on a 2005 Buick La Sabre.

If You use a Metric socket and Remove the Two Silver bolts Attaching the headlight Assemble onto the metal surrounding the the lamp assembly it comes out to the front. This makes it much easier to access the bulb. Twist it counerclockwise & it comes out by pulling gently on the bulb. Then by realeasing a tab that is the socket holder bulb can be removed & replaced with a New #9006 low beam halogen light bulb. Wrap a Paper towel around the bulb & do NOT touch it with your bare hand as this wiil ruin a halogen bulb,

SOURCE: To remove radio on a 1998 Buick LeSabre describes

I have a 1995 and 1999 LeSabre and the radio removal is the same on both.
1. Carefully remove the AC vents from the dash.
2. In each of the AC openings are screws that hold the top of the dash trim in place.
3. Starting from the passenger door gently pry off the "wood" trim piece, It is held in place with metal clips and velcro.
4. Do the same as 3 from the driver side (short piece).
5. Remove the remaing screws from the bottem of the dash.
6. Move the Shift knob (requires key) all the way down.
7. Starting at each end of the dash slowly pry/pull each clip along the top of the dash from its mounting hole. Be careful not to crack the silver trim piece on the top of the dash (especially on top of the passenger airbag).
8. When the dash is free tilt the top in towards the car and wiggle it loose around the bottom (over the steering column) and the whole piece should come free.

This gives access to the radio, heater controls, speedo etc.

For the radio - three screws - antenna cable pop out. The harness needs a little more work. If your radio has a security feature (blinking light when car is off) make sure you know the security unlock code. Test the code before pulling the power to the radio.
Turn the radio over and carefully unlock the blue clip at the bottom of the plug. Then work the harness loose.
This sounds much worse than it is - it should take 15-30 minutes depending if you have all the tools close by. BTW those AC vents have a top and bottom - the larger hole goes on the bottom and they snap back in place.

How do I remove dash pad on 2003 buick lesarbre

That's not a job you want to tackle. The entire dash has to be removed and then disassembled, piece by piece.

How to fix a buckled dashboard panel

a dash board is made from preformed high density foam so unless the part you are concernered about is replaceable seperate to the entire dash board i think you will find it vey difficult to get it straightened, the only way is to remove the bashboard and see if there is a way to reinforce in the area of the distortion but this is a huge amount of work ,there are some repairers that work with plastic panels they might have a better idea so i'd look up a local body work repairer for an opinion , it's difficult to give accurate advice on this sort of issue without seeing the vehicle , keep me posted if you wish

2003 buick lesabre rear brakes need replacing. How do you do it?

I have done mine several times. Depending on how handy you are we can get more specific. At a high level (jack up the rear, remove tire, etc) there are two bolts that hold the pad assy to the car. You have to loosen them and remove the assy. The emergency brake cable needs to be unclipped but do your best not to remove it or it is a bear to reattach. Once the assy is loose keep it in the air. A small box is helpful. The pads come out pretty easy. Keep track of which side the pads come out of. One side is the warning piece (metal tab). To retract the cylinder you have to turn it. I can't remember if clockwise or counter and if it is different on each side. Once the cylinder is retracted you can put the pads in. Make sure the retaining clips stay in place and the knobs on the back of the pad fit into the notches on the cylinder. After the pads are in slide the assy back over the disc. Put the bolts back in and tighten. Make sure the bolts go in tight. Look for locktight on them and make sure you clean the threads of if necessary and reapply locktite (that is another story). Push on the brake pedal to make sure the pads are set before driving.

If you need more help perhaps we can take this off line.

The dash needs to be moved back. The dash is

Replace it, as there is no adjustment. Get o good used one , use a sunshade and never use armor all on it. That will cause them to shrink up. Put a meat or cooking themometer on the dash and leave car in the sun. The temperature will surprise you.

My 95 Buick LeSabre skips a lot when breaking.

Warped rotors or bad brake pads. Remove and replace. It could aslo your electronic brake pressure modulator valve. Its on the left side under your dash. When you start your car does the red BRAKE warning light come on for a few seconds and then go out? If it does, that's normal, and your problem is warpage or pads. Be sure your brake fluid resovoir is full too.
