Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Hi all, On a 1997 Buick Lesabre (likely most cars), the seat belt clip is attached to a metal rod, which is attached to the floor. By one hex torque screw. PLEASE, HOW ON EARTH CAN I REMOVE THAT THING. ** Sooner or later, the traffic police will fugre out a seat belt over the shoulder is not a good thing.. ***** SO. THAT ONE SCREW ON THE FLOOR MUST COME OUT. Give a yell please, I am on disability and can't pay for a shop to do it. Good folks, but I no longer have cash and need to do these things myself. The one screw seems to sneer at trying to use a socket wrench. THANKS

    Yep, that should do it. I've got a younger brother in another state that could give Mcguyver lessons. So I never learned. Anyway, thanks for the answer.

Spray some WD-40 on the HEX both (on top and underneath it) and then use a ratchet with a T-15 or T-20 hex socket attached and turn the bolt counter clockwise. If the bolt will not move then bang on it with the end of your ratchet or attach a breaker bar to the end of your ratchet to give you more leverage. You will need a set of Torx Bit Sockets (T30, T40, T45, and T50) Click on the link below to view the tools needed:

How do I take out the rear seat in a 2003 buick reagal?

Usually, you have to take out the bottom part of the seat first. You need to unhook the spring frame. To do this, lay down across the back floor of the car, and push rearward on the very bottom of the center of seat. Push back about an inch, then lift up. The seat should now sort of pivot up. You can then unhook it from the rear and remove it from the car.
The seat back part of the seats are usually held in place by large hex nuts or Torx head screws. Remove those as needed to take out the seat backs.

1997 buick park ave 4 door right front door handle won,t work from the outside

Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.
