Hi it will undo anti clockwise like a normal bolt.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

if your removing the battery then remember when you put the battery back on your stereo may ask for security code and if you dont have this you will need to take a trip to the main dealers to get the code as that is the only way you can get it if you dont have the card the code was written on when the car was new.

How do u take off the oil pan on a 1999 awd bravada 4.3


Hello skullz, this is a fairly big task but it can be done in your driveway. Take your time, keep track of all your parts you remove. Use masking tape and a sharpie to label stuff if you feel like it will make easier to reinstall....These steps are for a 99 blazer 4x4 with an aluminum pan. You wont need to do some of the shift linkage removal due to the AWD and electronics the Olds has.

Disconnect battery and remove battery tray. Disconnect shift cable at actuator. Raise and support vehicle.

Remove underbody shield from steering linkage and engine oil pan. Drain crankcase. Remove starter motor.

Remove oil cooler pipes and both front wheels. Disconnect electrical connector and remove wiring harness bracket at shift cable housing.

Remove 3 shift cable housing bolts and disconnect shift cable from differential carrier. Remove both front drive axles. Remove differential housing.

Remove 10 oil pan bolts, 2 nuts at crankshaft rear oil seal and remove 2 transmission to oil pan bolts....Remove oil pan from vehicle....When you reinstall & tighten the oil pan bolts, start in the middle of the pan and go back to the bellhousing, directly across from each bolt---left, right, left right...then, from the middle towards the front of engine, right, left, right left...Torque to 18 ft/lbs

Good luck... if you tackle this job its a fun one....

Where is the battery located


to get to the battery on most breezes you have to take off the front driver tire and the wheel well
You really do not have to take the wheel off just turn it all the way to the left and jack it up a few inches the battery will slide right out
To get to the battery on a 99 Breeze, turn the wheel as far as you can to the left. In front of the tire in the wheel-well is a plastic cover with 5 tabs across the top and side. Turn these 1/4 turn to the left, and the panel pulls off. Use a 1/2 inch socket to remove the battery mount/hold down. It would be best to remove the top bolt first. Then use a 5/16 inch socket to remove the front mount battery cables, and the battery will slide right out. You may have to lift the car a bit to get the battery out.

Light problem


You have bad grounds. Specifically the black wire at the headlights needs to have its connection on the body cleaned. Best is to remove the ground wire bolt and clean the surface with sandpaper the apply a dab of an anti-seize compound and reapply the bolt. The lazy way is to loosen the bolt, spray WD-40 and retighten the bolt. Now is the time to attend to all the ground attachments on the car and also clean both battery terminals.
