A friendly suggestion: if you're going to be performing maintenance on your Saab you may want to invest in a service manual (aftermarket should be fine such as Chilton's or Clymer's). There's also lots of help to be found on www.saabnet.com Good luck with your Saab!
Not alot of info. But I suspect you are wondering how to retract the caliper piston so that you can get the new pads in and the whole assy back on the rotor. Since they are "self adjusting" real breaks (that tighten slightly when you use the brake while in reverse) the caliper piston must be rotated counter clockwise while being compressed.
You need to make or buy a special tool.
I got mine at harbor Freight for $20.00. Hope this helps.
New Answerer: I just finished doing this job for a 1990 Cutlass Supreme. I was able to compress the piston by putting gentle pressure on the piston with a 7 or 8 inch C clamp and then rotated the piston CLOCKWISE with Channel Lock pliers for the right rear brakes. (I assume it is counter-clockwise for the left rear.) I got a friend to slowly tighten the clamp while I turned the piston. It is important to use just the edge of the pliers so that the rubber bellows around the piston will not be damaged. I also had to grind the edges of the rotor a little to take off the edges for several inches on each side of the rotor so that the new pad material would not be damaged when the caliper and new pads were slipped over the rotor.
These cars have an electric choke relay . The gap when cold should be 1/8". if not you need to change the unnit on the side of the carb. If it is original you need to drill out the 3 pop rivets holding the plastic housing to remove the old one and replace them with the new screws that come with the new choke relay
The ignition module on a 86 ciara 2.5 is located under hood, center,lower engine area,below driver side of intake manifold . mounted inside of distributor
well if you look buy the shifter there is a piece that is around it you have to remove that peice then you remove two screws that are hard to see but they are under the A/C controls once you take that out the plastic cover that covers everything will be easy from there there are 4 screws the hold the radio bracket in place remove thouse two on each side and you done Here's how I removed the radio in my Altima with very little effort: Park on Nuuanu Avenue near downtown Honolulu where the crackheads congregate just north of Vineyard Avenue. Leave the windows down and the doors unlocked; crackheads are stupid (and on crack), so they may not notice that they don't have to smash the window or screwdriver the lock unless you make it obvious. Procedure takes about fifteen minutes, but it's hard to get a reliable appointment (crackheads don't wear watches), so it's best to leave the car during service hours from about midnight to 5 a.m. Crackheads work for free, but they are kind of messy and sometimes do unexpected extra work like removing your ashtray, or your sunglasses, or your surfboard wax. Yep, surfboard wax. Sometimes they cut themselves and leave blood on your seats, but since they are all in excellent health, there is little chance of HIV, or typhoid, or cholera passing to you. Maybe they will work more neatly if you leave a sandwich and a bottle of Two-Buck Chuck. Anyway, it's a free and effortless method.
Fuel Pump Is In Fuel Tank. This Is Not A Do It At Home Project Suggest Take It To A Garrage. If Not; Be Sure To Disconnect Battery. Raise Rear Of Car, Making Sure That It Is Safe To Work Around And Under. Siphon Gasoline From Tank If You Can. Remove Tank, Careful With Wiring; Remove Old Pump From Tank Suggest You Have New One With You. Note Position Of Sender And Pump. Install As Directed. Reverse All Put In Gasoline. ONE OTHER THING NO FLAME OR SMOKING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The ECM is located under the coolant reserve tank and mounted to the front of the strut tower. Only a single nut holds it in place. once you remove the nut simply pull it out.
I have the same car- I'm not sure exactly what you mean by the fuse diagram. The fuse panel is located inside the glove box to the left. Each fuse location is clearly identified for tail lights, wipers, etc. The only one that appears to be missing is the fuse receptacle for the blower fan ( even though it is indicated in writing on the panel). You might have to order a trouble shooting guide for your make or model or just call a dealer's part Dept. and ask them. Good luck.
It is located on a bracket about 8 or 9 inches above the pedal pad for the brakes...should have an electrical connector plugged into the back end of it. Pending on cruise control the assembly could be plastic or threaded metal as the switch body.
Turn the key forward for ten min. then shut the key off then try to start it.
Inertia is a fundamental property of all objects having mass. Mass resists the change in motion. Inertia applies to both the states of a body i.e., body at rest and at motion. Inertia is applicable to all objects in everyday life. For example " your body will continue to move forward because of inertia, when suddenly brake are applied during driving"
Inertia is generally given by Newton's first law of motion, which is also called as "the law of inertia". This law states that an object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an external force. The more massive an object is, the greater will be its inertia, meaning that s it will require more force to change its state of motion.
Intertia is the tendency of an object to maintain its velocity: if an object is at rest, it has the tendency to remain at rest; if it is moving, the tendency is to keep moving with the same velocity. That is what happens if no forces act on the object; if forces act on the object, including gravitation, friction, and others, its velocity will change.
It could be your oil sending unit has gone bad.
There are actually 3 kinds of inertia. They are as follows :
1. Inertia of Rest
2. Inertia of Motion
3. Inertia of Direction
But nowadays people consider that there are 2 kinds of inertia , inertia of rest and inertia of motion.
Actually, there is a separate relay as well as the solenoid. This relay is in a fuse panel, either under the hood, or maybe even in the kick panel fuse panel.
If you can get to the starter, try this:
Turn the key to "on". With the car in PARK (double check this, it's important)
look into the starter area. You'll see a big cable and a small cable both coming to the starter. Use a screwdriver to short these two together, keeping your hands, arms and hair AWAY from the belts!
If the car turns over, starts acts like it's going to run, but quits as soon as you remove the screwdriver, you may have a bad relay. This relay not only allows the starting system to START the car, it also allows the ignition system to function.
That's why it starts and tries to run, the power is back feeding through the system and giving power to the ignition coil when you short the starter. As soon as you pull the screwdriver away, the ignition loses power, and the engine coasts to a stop.
I've seen the relays priced anywhere from 25 to 50 bucks, depending on where you get it.
I just changed the starter on my cutlass cierra 92, and I took it just one step at a time. I disconnected the battery, then I jacked up the car and put the front on jackstands. Then under the motor just behind the radiator, you will find your starter. There is a dust cover that is held by one nut. you must remove this. It has two bolts (i used 15mm socket) and if they haven't been moved in the last 13 years get ready to use wd40 to remove them. The starter should drop as you remove them and it fits out of the space between the frame and the rad pipes. Look carefully at the wires. Only one goes on the small connecter. All the others go on the large connecter. Put the new starter back in the reverse order, and it should work.
O.K. I hat Alyssa L.
I have an 89 cutlass supreme 3.1 and it should be the same. Remove the belt from the alternator. Next, There are two bolts on top and one under it. The two bolts on top are both size 10 wrench or socket and the one on the bottom is 13. One of the bolts on top is located on the right hand side of the alternator if facing it from the passenger side fender. The other one on top is connected to a metal arm just to the right of the wire that plugs in at the top and to the left of the other bolt. Unplug the wire. The fun begins here. The easiest way I found to get the bottom bolt out was using a short ranchet with a swivel head, a short size 13 socket and lots of patience, because I was only able to get very small turns on it. There is probably an easier way but I was unable to find it. Once the bolt on the bottom is loose and you can pull it out, I had to move the metal arm out of the way, that you loosened earlier, to get the bolt out completely out. a little, have fun.
You can take the whole aluminum "plate" off rather than taking off the third, buried alternator mounting bolt. After you loosen and remove the belt take off the three nuts below the alternator that mount the mounting plate to the engine block. It will be easy to do and easier than chasing that buried bolt.
there were 569 - 1969 Holiday S Coupes made.
With the radio off, press the set button. Scan button sets the hours, Seek button sets the minutes.
They are about the same. The Olds has a 307 cid with 170 HP and 250 ft-lbs of torque and is usually a couple of hundred lbs. heavier than the Chevy. It also sports a HD rear end developed for the Buick Grand National. The Chevy has a 302 cid with 180 HP and 240 ft-lbs of torque.
The 4-4-2 in stock form should be a tenth faster in the quarter mile, and the Monte Carlo should have a 5 MPH higher top speed. In the real world, the driver, maintenance, and number of go-fast parts make a much bigger difference than the brand.
You have to loosen the power steering pump bolts and push down on the pump and the belt will loosen to take it off, to put it back on you route the belt over the pulleys and pull up on the steering pump and when tight tighten the pump bolts and your done.
