Take a search on youtube.com for a video of someone else doing this. A moving picture is worth a million words. Most likely all GM products post 2006 are similar so do not get discouraged if you do not see that exact year and model.

I would like to know how to change the battery in a 2008 r350 Mercedes


Try this To get to it is complicated


Move seat as far back as possible. Seat rails have covers on them - slide them forward....the left one will only slide forward, cannot be removed. Between the two seat rails you will see two little battery cover mounting nuts. Use 6 mm T-handle hex key to remove the nuts. Move seat as far forward as possible and twist rear rail covers to left and right and then pull toward rear of car. Pull back/fold floor carpet under seat from front to back (carpet is perforated so you may have to really yank the first time). There are two more battery cover mounting nuts between rear seat rails. There is a battery cover with an air vent pull it slightly to right and then lift out. There is a vent hose attached to battery on left side -- pull it out. Unfasten & remove attachment nuts on left side (low). Remove the battery attachment once those nuts are off. Push battery to the left. Disconnect battery negative lead (right) (do not let it touch pos. lead on left). Remove cover from pos (red/left) terminal and disconnect lead.

Where is the cabin filter on a sierra 2004 gmc sle crew cab truck


The 04 SIERRA is behind a panel with 4 screws under the glove box...Remove the screws and cover and slide it out.There is actually 2 in there and it is easy once the cover is off.

Usually there are extremely detailed instructions that come with the new filter when you open the box...Follow these instructions it shouldn't be too hard.

How do i reinstall the stereo


The instrument panel cover (and therefore the radio bezel) is fastened to the dash frame with snap-clips which cannot be seen with the instrument panel cover installed. To remove the instrument panel cover and gain access to the radio cavity, remove the radio fuse from fuse panel located on the driver's side of truck (the one that has a thumbnail opening and is triangular shaped), visible when you open the driver's door. Then set parking brake all the way down, put key in ignition and turn to "on" but not "start" and put gearshift into "L" position.
The snap-clips are located at the upper right corner, lower right corner, upper left corner, lower left corner and a few places in between, behind the dash cover over the instrument panel. You don't need any tools, just put your fingers on the seam of the dash cover and the the dash body, and pull firmly toward you until the instrument panel cover pops out and GENTLY so as not to break the instrument panel cover, continue until the instrument panel cover is loose from the dash and resting on the steering column. The headlight switch, and 4X4 switch (if equipped) remain in the instrument panel cover and will have to be unplugged to remove the instrument panel cover from the dash completely. This is a snug fit, even with the gearshift in "L".
The aftermarket radio bezel will have two screws at the bottom under the radio on the dash frame. Remove these screws, and remove the aftermarket radio from the radio cavity in the dash. The factory radio has two guide pins on the back, and the electrical connector is made into the radio and again in the back of the radio cavity. Simply slide the factory unit into the radio cavity, firmly seat it into the connector and guide pin sockets, and re-install the two screws you took out earlier.
The instrument panel cover re-installs the reverse of removal, and to seat the snap-clips, simply strike the cover sharply with the heel of your hand over each clip location. The dash will pop right back into place, and you will never know that an aftermarket head unit had ever been in there.

Can't find Nav fuse


I have a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD Duramax and use the HyperTech software also. I assume you are talking about the installation instructions for HyperTech where it tells you to remove the ONStar and Radio fuse. Look in the owners manual for the fuse box layout under the hood. On mine, it's in the Duramax book and the only fuse that applies is the one listed for the Audio System. You will need to reset your clock when finished.
