Remove belt. There are three nuts on the belt side of the compressor left right and one on the bottom. Remove cover on bottom of car, it is plastic and secured with small lag screws. This allows access to the compressor and the rear compressor bolt. One bolt holds both A/C lines to the compressor. Be careful this is under pressure. The a/c system should be evacuated by a professional prior to removal of the compressor.

If the Bonneville is like my GTP then the fuel filter is in front of the fuel tank

A 1996 Pontiac Bonneville requires 5.7 quarts of oil in the crankcase. The oil filter should also be changed with the oil.

I own a 1996 bonneville. The tensioner bolt is a reverse threaded bolt, (tighten to loosen). Hope this helps. DCC

Hi, unleaded over 92 octane is good but you can run 89. Change oil very often if you have supercharger SSEI

On my '95 Bonneville the trunk release button is on the driver's door below the door handle. Hope this helps.

low freon, bad pressure switch, bad compressor clutch.

I have a 1996 Bonneville and it has a Phillips head screw on each side of the armrest. If yours is like that then you should be able to just unscrew them and pop it out.

You don`t want to go there !( Trust me.) Take it to a radiator shop.

Under the steering wheel, probably on the left side near the door panel.

Slide under the front end and look up at the compressor, its right there almost on the compressor.

You have a bad relay. Your blinkers run on a different relay than you hazards do.
