1) block the front wheels. 2) jack up the rear wheel being worked on. 3) Remove the tire 4) Loosen and remove the bottom caliper bolt. 5) loosen the top caliper bolt. 6) Slide the caliper up out of the way. 7) Slide the rotor off the hub. I've done all four of mine. Takes about 10 minutes per wheel. I just realized you asked about a 1988 Caddy, I thought I read 1998. It should not be a big difference, though.

First remove the right and left tires, and then proceed to remove the rotors. After you have replaced the rotors put them back on.

In order to remove the headlight switch of a 1988 Cadillac Eldorado, you must first disconnect the negative cable from the battery and allow time for the capacitors to discharge. Unscrew the headlight switch, remove the wire plugs, and remove the switch itself. Insert a new switch and replace the wire plugs and screws. Reconnect the negative cable and test the new switch.

I think it's in the trunk on the right hand side if I remember correctly...just over the wheelwell...cheers
You're gonna have to remove what's left of the bolt. If it's broken off flush, you'll have to drill it out and use an extractor. If there's any sticking out, you may be able to use vise grips.

You need a steering wheel puller. Any Auto Parts store can help you.
No it is not necessary to remove the axle nut in order to remove the front caliper. Once you remove the caliper the rotor should come off.
I'm assuming you meant fill it with gas. Depends on how much the gas costs. Also depends on how much you have left when you start filling it. Actually it's a pretty dumb question.
You don't have to remove it, you just have to lift it off the mount enough to get the pan to come off.
The fuel tank on a 1988 Cadillac Sedan DeVille holds approximately 18 gallons of fuel.
follow the plug from the blower motor. It should lead to another plug on top of your heater core housing.There should be three bolts securing the plug. Remove them and replace the part. I don't know what it is called.My 1988 eldorado did the same thing. Works fine now though.
I have an 1988 Deville. On my car the power steering pump is on top of engine next to the belt tensioner. You will see a reservoir with a plastic cap . Remove cap and put fluid in there.
