    Mission accomplished prior to Chiquititas's post.

    Maybe someones else can use these instructions,

    apparently few attempt this on their own.

    I am fortunate that my husband keeps my little

    Century in tip-top shape.

    Thank you Chiquititas for taking the time to share

    your knowledge.

Simple, you don't! Remove the passenger's side front tire and there is a little door from which you access the battery.
Actually, you do need to remove it. You can't access the terminal posts or the tie-down bracket from the access door. The good news is the process is straightforward, and you don't need to remove the tire.
First, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right. From here you can remove the six screws holding in the battery access panel.
Next, open the hood, unclip the air filter housing and remove the filter. It helps to get the cover up and out of the way by using a spare piece of wire and attaching it to the hood.
Now, you're ready to remove the air filter housing. On the right side of the housing (facing the car) you'll notice a fastener with no apparent means of removal. This is a friction grommet, akin to the snaps on a baby's shirt. Grip the housing right above this fastener and give it a firm pull upwards. The housing should pop out over the fastener. The left side is not fastened - there are two "bumpers" that hold it in place on that side.
Now you have complete access to the battery and can proceed with the replacement, sliding the battery out through the access door once it's been disconnected.
Finally, it's much easier to re-install the battery access door from the top, before re-installing the air filter housing. It's possible, but not easy from down below.

SOURCE: how to replace a coolant level sensor, 2000 buick century

The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.

2000 buick century fuel filter location

Regarding the coolant level sensor, I had to remove the battery on my 2000 in order to "tap" the new sensor in. It has two O-rings on it and I couldn't get enough leverage to press it in w/o removing the battery. Perhaps others can do it w/o removing the battery but that's what I ended up doing.

How to replace 2000 buick century temperature actuator

First, what is the problem that you need to replace the actuator? Is the air flow from the vents not changing? If this is the problem, the actuator is inside the venting behind the control panel and is difficult to get to but is possible. Follow the hoses on back of temp controls to the actuator. There should be 2 small bolt screws to remove to change out actuator.
If this is for something else, let me know

The cabin air filter for your 2002 Buick Century is located under the cowl in the firewall between the engine compartment and the passenger side of the front seat. To change the filter:
1. Leave the wipers in up position.
2. Open the hood
3. Remove the weather stripping from passenger side of cowl
4. Unclip the window washer line (two or three places)
5. Remove the three fasteners with an ordinary screwdriver (one is easy, the other two were more difficult)
6. Take out the cowel cover
7. Remove old filter
8. Put in new filter
9. Replace cover, fasteners, washer line, and weather stripping.

Do it about every 20,000 km. I left mine for nearly 130,000 km and it was filthy dirty.
New filter costs about $12
