Question about 2000 Buick Century
How do you get to this filter?
I want to replace this filter.
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.

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.
