The shifter works off a shift cable which is connected to the transmission. The connection of this cable to the transmission is on the drivers side looking straight up were you can see it. The other end connects to the inner part of the shifting mechanisum where you shift
You can only get a replacement at any General Motos dealerships parts department

The blower motor location can change from year-to-year. It can also change with the trim level of the vehicle. A vehicle that has front and rear climate controls may be configured differently than a vehicle that has front controls only. The following are two different repair procedures. One is for blower motors located and accessed in the engine compartment, the other is for blower motors mounted inside the vehicle.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION

Engine Compartment Mounted

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the engine air cleaner assembly.
  3. If necessary for clearance, remove the left hand wiper arm linkage.
  4. Detach the wire harness connector from the blower motor.
  5. Disconnect the motor cooling hose.
  6. Remove the blower motor assembly retaining screws
  7. Carefully pull the blower motor assembly out from the firewall.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION


CAUTION Older brake pads or shoes may contain asbestos, which has been determined to be a cancer causing agent. Never clean the brake surfaces with compressed air! Avoid inhaling any dust from any brake surface! When cleaning the brake surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove 2 / 3 of the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir using a clean syringe or equivalent. Install the reservoir cap.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle with jackstands.
  4. Mark the relationship of the wheel to the hub and bearing assembly.
  5. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  6. Remove the caliper, as outlined later, and suspend from the strut with a wire hook or suitable piece of wire. Do NOT disconnect the brake hose or allow the caliper to hang from the brake line!

See Figures 1, 2 and 3

  1. Before installing new pads, clean the outside surface of the caliper boot with denatured alcohol, or equivalent.

To install:
  1. Lubricate the sleeves and bushings with silicone lubricant and install them in the caliper.
  2. One method of pushing the piston back into the bore is to use a large pair of adjustable pliers over the caliper housing and bottom the piston into the caliper bore. Another is to use the special disc brake tool available at most part stores, or even a large C-clamp will work.

See Figures 6, 7 and 8

need to add freon to '99 chevy venture

on a 99 they use R134A and I suggest you buy a can from autozone the one with a gauge on it and it has compressor oil in it. When you use the can that has the gauge it will tel you several things one if the compressor is leaking and does it have vachum and it will keep you from over charging. It will hook up on the low side, and it will be on the passenger side by the fire wall. unscrew the blue cap start the car turn the ac to max A/C and fan on max do this in the morning as it will take a chage better if it's not hot, then crack open the valve on the can to allow enoungh freon to get the air out of the line of the can, this is very important, air mixed with refrigerant creates an acid in the ac system and will eat the rubber hoses and the orifce tube. Now screw the cap of the can on quickly and get it tight and open the valve on the can 1/2 to 3/4 turn and watch the gauge, shake the can back and forth to allow gas and liquid into the sytem so it will not slug the compresor with to much liquid and damage the compresssor, continue to wath cht gauge if it gets about 50 then shut off the valve and wait watch the gauge to see if it drops down to 30 if it does check inside to see if the air is cool if it's colder ad a little more watching the gauge as you do and continuelly shaking the can back and froth that is from side to side not up and down, I want to be clear about that. If the gauge reaches 50 shut the valve off check to see if it is cooling more, watch the gauge with the valve off if it drops to 30 again then quickly unhook the can screw the cap back on and then drive it on a stright away for a couple of miles to see if it gets cooler, if it does you may try to add more refrigerant but be careful cause at a certain point like 50 on the gauge it will stop cooling and yo will have it over charged and since you can't see the high side pressure we are just guessing what it is, if it's 30 on the low side then it will be 225 on the high side if its close to 50 the high side will be 300 to 350 and close to poping the safety release valve. good luck and hope this helps, normally the reciever dryer has to be replaced and the orifice tube but you might get lucky. And follow the direction I gave you exactly, if you see the pressure build to over 50 shutthe car off and unhook the hose anddo not attempt to charge it, it can blow the can up if the pressure gets to high. Good Luck.

Okay... One can not see the negative battery terminal so.... Connect the negative clip from your charger to the chassis and then remove the RED plastic cover in front of the black relay box above the battery OR the plastic cover from the positive battery terminal and connect the positive cable. Make sure you have good connections by watching the meter on your charger. Then plug in the charger and turn it on. Charge time depends on the strength of your charger. I'm going to go hook mine up again because I need to go out for a bit. I don't think I'm going to like changing this battery..... Just thought I'd share..... Good luck.
