Your 3800 Regal should not create any additional work to remove/replace the factory starter...Ask your parts store to show you sure to disconnect one side of the battery prior to any work around the starter...Should be just 3 bolts (plus 2 wire conncections) for the switch out...Hope this helps.

My 2011 buick regal cxl stalls over speed bumps,and makes a clicking sound when starting up sounds like its coming from passenger side under hood

Look for a loose bulkhead connector, or something near the alternater. This ride should still be under warranty, so let the dealership figure it out!

How to replace my starter for a 1998 buick regal

Hello spitandspat,

Here is a step by step. As always care must be taken when lifting a car, proper support is necessary.

The starter is on the side of the engine closest to the radiator.

1. Disconnect the battery negative cable and isolate it so it can't make contact with the battery connection.
2. Raise and properly support the car.
3. Disconnect the wires from the starter.
4. Remove the plastic shield from the bell housing to expose the starter bolts.
5. Remove the starter.
Note: If there are shims under the starter you will need to replace them as needed.
Note: Compare the old starter with the new starter before installing are two different starters for this application.

Installation is the reverse of the removal.

How do i change the front struts on a1995 buick regal grand sport

Use a spring compressor to clamp the spring down (Be Careful). disconnect strut from lower control arm, and the 3 or 4 bolts under the hood ontop of the strut tower. Remove strut and spring, remove spring from strut (Still Compressed), put spring on new strut (Still Compressed), Install bolts under hood, aka strut tower, reconnect lower control arm, slowly uncompress the spring and make sure it seats properly. Take it an alignment shop to get your front end re-aligned.

1998 Buick Regal LS - all 4 windows will not work from master control or individually. Could this be something as simple as a fuse replacement?

Yes. It could also be dirty electrical contacts in the switches. Worst case is that all four regulators have failed, but not likely if they went out at the same time.
