(see Figures 1, 2 and 3)

This procedure is applicable for vehicles, with or without air conditioning.

  1. Disconnect the negative cable at the battery.
  2. On the 3.1L (VIN M) you will need to remove the serpentine belt and move the alternator aside.
  3. For the 2.2L (VIN 4), disconnect the air inlet resonator, then remove the torque strut from the engine. Rotate the engine slightly forward.
  4. Working inside the engine compartment, disconnect the blower motor electrical leads.
  5. Remove the motor retaining bolts. If there is a hose disconnect it, then remove the blower motor.

There is a red wire close to the battery in the front. It's not connected to anything. Apply positive voltage and that will run your pump for testing purposes.

Need to Replace my starter. Can i get a step by step crash course? 94' Cutlass Ciera

Before taking your starter motor off take a note of the make and model number and that the replacement matches it exactly, there is nothing worse to find that half way through a job that the replacement is critically different in some way. Disconnect the negative cable to the battery. Unbolt the cables to the starter solenoid and starter motor assembly. Remove the two mounting bolts and drop the motor assembly out. Reverse the above steps when installing the new motor. Sorry that this is not a more complicated procedure but swapping the starter motor for a new one is one of the simpler jobs. Take your time and keep safe and you should be able to complete everything in about an hour. Remember to reconnect the battery. Good luck

the motor window is worn out which is common. You will have to remove all screws on door panel and then pry panel off. You will then have access to the motor. It may have soldered wires on it. Others can pull off, or you can cut wires up stream and twist back together later with new motor
