They do not sell the clip so you have to buy the whole assembly. You can either replace the part by yourself or take it to dealer (500.00+ at dealer), less than 200-250 at auto parts store.

Step 2: Remove upper radiator hose...

Remove the small hose connecting the coolant reservoir to the upper radiator hose... Then remove the larger hose from the hard pipe running along the intake and from the radiator... You'll need to pop up (but not off) the metal clip holding the hose to the radiator, then firmly pull back..

Step 3: Remove intake hose (throttle body to inter-cooler)...

Remove driver's side headlight (not necessary but makes it a lot easier). Loosen clamp at each end and remove hose...

My drivers side window dropped to the bottom electric window i can here running but window does not come up how do i fix it

could be a couple of different things, you need to start by taking the door panel off, there will be a few screws, and most likely some clips that hold it in place... either your window regulator broke, or the little plasic pieces that hold the window to the regulator broke... or could just be one of the deals where the window came out of the clips... but that only happens to the lucky ones... never has happened to me like that lol.. hope this helps

Hello: You will have to replace the switch. You have to remove the switch plate, to remove plate you use a 1/4 in straight slot screwdriver, put protection under the screwdriver (to protect panel) push down on the screwdriver go under the plate on the end, there is a spring clip you have to push on and pry up on at the same time. Un plug connectors on switch plate(they only go on one way) then remove screws thad holds the window switch assembly. Be sure to get the switch with the auto feature.

Driver side door handle pop off. Can it be repaired

A piece of metal probably broke. You likely will need a new door handle installed. This requires disassembly of the inside of the door.

How do you replace a rear power window regulator on a 2001 Buick Regal?

take the inner door panel off and Then locate 1" holes stamped into the metal of the door. lower window so hidden bolts holding the window to the regulator appear in these hols and remove, push glass all the way up and brace as not to let it fall and hit your hand or break. Then locate 3 to 5, 10mm nuts, located on the inner metal face of the door that hold the regulator to the door, and remove. Remove regulator then window lift motor. (caution when seperating some regulators from thier motor, because some are spring loaded....finger removers).
good luck!

Window on rt passenger side went down inside door. Took off inside of door and wire (liking hanging a painting wire) makes a loop but is connected at the top. What do I need to do?

Being raised a farm girl, I do what I need to do at the time to get by. So I took apart my door, pushed the window back up, stuck a piece of fire wood in there to hold it up and wrapped electrical tape (since I couldn't find the duct tape) around the wood and the metal bar that the window slides up and down in. JUST IN TIME before it downpoured. Getting it fixed proper today! When you are in a pinch you do what you have to do. A country girl can survive!
