Lift the car, remove the car tires, remove the brake shoe/calipers and remove the old brake pads. Put in the new brake pads, replace the brake shoe/calipers, replace the tire and lower the car to the ground.

There are three 10 mm bolts that hold it in place. Remove those, then slide the headlight out. Release the clips from the bulbs themselves. Then put the new one back in the same way you took the old one out.

One lifts the car on a car jack, removes the tires, remove the brake shoe, remove and replace the brake pad. Then one has to replace the brake shoe in the correct position, then put the tired back on the car.

After you open the back hatch, you notice two compartments, one on each side of the hatch area, remove the panels to gain access to the bulbs.

I know it will feel like you're going to break it, but firmly pull and it will come off. Replace the bulb, snap it back on.

Over 20 mph, front brake then add back brake. Under 20mph a little front but mostly back brake. Under 5 mph back brake only. In an emergency front brake hard and add back brake hard. Change down after braking, even if you brake to a standstill.

remove the trunk lining or bend it back easy where the brake light is to access it and change it out.

Remove the wheel, and brake assembly (4 bolts on back of calipers) be sure to hang the brake piston so that it does not hang by the brake line, remove the rotor, clean and inspect all parts including brake pads. Open the brake fluid resivoir, get a c-clamp or a piston depressor to push the brake piston back in. This should take about 15 seconds to SLOWLY push the piston in. Re-assemble brakes and repeat on other side.

Lift the vehicle on a car jack, remove the tire and set aside, remove the brake shoe/caliper and remove the old brake pad. Next, dispose of the old brake pad, put in the new brake pads, put the brake shoe/caliper back on, put the tire back in its place and lower the car.

Usually through the back panel in the trunk

Changing brake rotors is pretty easy. One lifts the car, removes the tired, brake shoe and then the brake rotor. Next replace the brake rotor, put the brake shoe and tire back on the car and lower it back to the ground.

There probably isn't one. My '96 had one, but Pontiac discontinued them shortly after the model was introduced. If there is one, it will be back near the firewall, down from the brake master cylinder.

No special tool. half inch socket and a 13mm. if you have a C-clamp or something to push the calibar back that's all ya need.
