Hi, on the 1993 Buick Lesabre the crankshaft sensor is located under the dampener pulley. Remove the serpentine belt. Remove right front wheel. Remove plastic access cover thats behind that wheel. With an impact wrench remove dampener pulley bolt. With an Dampener pulley puller remove pulley.

How do I access door speakers in 1994 Buick Lasabre?

Ash at any of the chain auto parts stores for a panel tool. This will make removal of the panels somewhat easy. You must remove any screws you can find, for armrests for example, then the tool is used to pry the snap mounts free of the sheet metal. You may break some in the process so be prepared for that to happen. The plastic plugs get brittle over the years even if not brittle when new. These are also available at parts stores.

97 buick la sabre , I have removed all bolts on

You are correct it is connected with two plastic elbows the will almost always break when you remove the assem. If you have removed all the bolts you should be able to wiggle and work it loose by gently prying on it, just look at the direction of the elbows and work it in that direction, but i highly reccomend replacing both elbows.

Plastic in the way of 96 LeSabre's starter mounting bolts.

The plastic parts are sheilds which are snapped together with push pin retainers. If any are broken they can be purchased at auto parts stores or the Buick Dealer

97 Buick Lesabre-Am I crazy or do you have to unhook the engine mount to replace serpentine belt,I hope im just missing something. Thanks for any help. Don

Not the whole mount! Raise the car, remove passenger front wheel. Remove two clips that hold splash guard that is in front of the lower part of that engine mount. You'll then see the lower stud with a nut on it. Remove that nut, remove stud with a socket, then remove the spacer that was around stud between bracket and engine. That opens a gap to allow the belt to go on.
