SOURCE: how do I change brake pads on a 2006 Pontiac Grand

Yes, You can buy a manual at your lacal parts store.
However, It's not that hard. But , you didn't say if you
need to change the front or rear pads?
I'll assume your refering to the front.
1st You'll need to jack up the car if you only have one
Jack then, pick the side you are too start say left front.
Jack the car up like chainging a tire BUT, Jack the car
up but, leave the tire touching the ground with, some weight
still on the tire with a lug rench turn the lug nuts JUST enought
to loosin the nut DO NOT take the nut off, maybe 1/4 " only.
Do the same on the others. Now, Jack up the car until the tire
is off the ground. NOW, Put a Jack Stand under the car never
NOT use a stand. Remove the nuts and tire.
Turn the wheel to the right it will give you more room to work.
You'll need to remove the caliper that holds the pads on.
There are two screws that hold the caliper on. I believe,
there 13mm remove the screws (Take them all the way OUT)
Remove, The caliper the pads, will stay in the holder.
Remove, the pads you may need a screw driver to get the
pads out.There are two pads that have a scencer on them
one for each side PUT that pad on the inside holder.( sencer down)
NOW rember you need, too make room for te new pads.
You need a c- clamp to push the piston BACK into the
bottom of the caliper. Be sure the piston is at the bottom of the caliper
or the caliper will NOT fit back on. Install the new pads into the holder.
.Then, put the caliper back on to it's mount over the new pads.
Put the two caliper bolts back and, your done.
Reverse, the infromation from the top.

SOURCE: 2006 pontiac grand prix, heat only gets warm not

Have you checked the coolant level? If that checks out ok... With the engine fully warmed up touch the heater core hoses where they go into the fire wall (about the center of the firewall). They both should be pretty hot to the touch. You'll likely find one hot and one warm. If this is the case flushing the heater core will likely get your heat blowing out hot again.

02 pontiac grand prix blows out cold air on passenger side when heat is on. the heat works fine on the drivers side

Problem with the blend door actuator or wiring going to it (no separate fuse). Most of the time the actuator motor fails and won't close the blend door. I can't guarantee that it isn't a broken wire going to the actuator. It should set a trouble code in the BCM (body control computer) if its electrical because it looks for a feedback as to where the door is positioned.
