Most of this struts have a little clamp at each end, this clamp has to be lift with a pocket screw driver, just make sure to use safety glases or not stay at front of the clamp when doing it, then just pull shock out

My 1992 pontiac firebird i cant get power to my door locks,trunk, headlights,domelights and now i cant get power to the switch to start the car whats wrong with it?

Most likely blown fusible link on starter. Back probe smaller wires from starter, checking for power with a test light. Usually it is within the first 6 to 12 inches away from the eye where it attaches to starter. Cut out burnt piece & attach new section of fusible link wire.

VickiMy trunk does not stay open, does it need a fuse?

Nice Car...the trunk is supported by 2 rod/struts one on each side, attached to the rear car body, and the trunk...these struts wear out and the symptom is the trunk will not stay up by itself...these rod/struts are available at most Auto Parts Stores...or definitely on the internet...the best manufacturer if replacement hood and trunk struts is "Mighty Arm" available on the internet...prices vary by car make and model...pretty easy to change...a good Auto Parts person might help demonstrate the easy switch out...:)

Where is the spare for a 1989 Pontiac firebird

The spare is in the hatch and is a temporary spare (donut). Open the hatch and remove the passenger side rear compartment cover by turning the three "screws" half turns to release them. The jack and other tools are mounted behind the spare.

Change ingnition switch on 1978 pontiac firebird trans am

Use a steering wheel puller to remove the snap ring that holds the big spring. Remove the screws that hold the signal light mechanism, and the signal light handle has to be removed. Lift the signal thing up to expose a "torx" headed screw. Remove that screw and the tumbler should pull out fairly easily. That torx screw should have an unthreaded part at the bottom of it. Make sure that comes with it. Sometimes they break off.

The trunk lifts/trunk struts on my 2001 Yukon have failed and need to be replaced. My questions: Are both struts the same part number or is there a separate number for the right and left strut and how do I...

they should when you purchase them let hem know you need both left and right but i believe they are the same as you should be able to turn the rod itself .

How to change hood struts 1989 Pontiac Trans Am?

you first have to take off the hood (2 bolts on each side where the hood meets the hinge) then take off the hood hinges (3 or 4 bolts on each side on top of fender) and after all that your hood hinges should be off. on each end there will be a metal retainer that holds the strut on the hinge, carefully pry these off with a screwdriver and install new struts, bolt the hinges back on and finally the hood

(have a friend help you lift the hood off)

Many of the Pontiacs of that era up to even present models had an access panel in the trunk that you could access through the back seat pass through.

Its been a while since I seen the inside of a Firebird, but in thinking about it the back seat pass through may not be present on the Firebird, but it may be worth the time to lift up the carpeting in the trunk area and see if there is an access panel to the fuel pump.
