@  BlackBetty : (29 July 2014 - 06:20 PM) ty for all your help this site rocks.. also is there a diy for exhaust. im unclear about the downpipe connection in the back
@  BlackBetty : (29 July 2014 - 05:59 PM) ill work on moving it more forward n such tonight.. its 100 degrees still here at midnight. i even took of a secondary cover next to the flywheel cover. would jacking the engine up a little bit more give me anything?
@  BlackBetty : (29 July 2014 - 05:58 PM) actually i did that 1st lol so i could get familiar with things while we set up for everything else
@  glendayle : (29 July 2014 - 05:49 PM) Make sure you removed the oil level sensor. That can get in the way.
@  glendayle : (29 July 2014 - 05:49 PM) then one moment, the pan will just be in your hands.
@  glendayle : (29 July 2014 - 05:49 PM) yeah, if you are catching on the edge there, just try to slide it forward a little bit. You just sort of have to figure it out
@  glendayle : (29 July 2014 - 05:48 PM) cool
@  BlackBetty : (29 July 2014 - 05:43 PM) yes i was using that link.. hence why backed the bolt in the rear out and reinstalled half inch. the LIM write up when very well minus snapping a few bolts. i blame the POS torque wrench that got returned. yes that took the longest out of everything a ratchet box end 15mm and off set 15mm helped vastly and for $20 for both :)
@  glendayle : (29 July 2014 - 05:40 PM) did you remove the motor mount bracket?

@  glendayle : (29 July 2014 - 05:39 PM) don't tug at all, you'll crease the corner
@  BlackBetty : (29 July 2014 - 05:38 PM) just catches bringing the pan down.. how hard can i tug? is it ok to pry it a little or with that bend/dent the pan?
@  glendayle : (29 July 2014 - 05:36 PM) yeah, no need to touch the front
@  BlackBetty : (29 July 2014 - 05:25 PM) oh ok looked like the front part of the cradle was bolted up with a torx bolt. i didnt want to have to purchase a specialty tool. I only loosened the back two.
@  Nateteo : (29 July 2014 - 05:21 PM) Torx is control arms.
@  Nateteo : (29 July 2014 - 05:20 PM) Torch is control arms.
@  glendayle : (29 July 2014 - 03:43 PM) ummmm torx bolt for what? cradle bolts are not torx bit.
@  BlackBetty : (29 July 2014 - 07:45 AM) So doing oil pan gasket.. thinking bout dropping the front cradle down some to give a little extra room for pan removal. Anyone know size of Torx bolt??
@  glendayle : (28 July 2014 - 08:06 AM) can fix any cluster with the bad readout for like $10
@  glendayle : (28 July 2014 - 08:05 AM) super easy fix. read the DIY

Folks, I picked up a rebuilt compressor clutch for my A/C compressor on my 98 Regal GS...just broke in at 298K miles....I thought I had seen a link on an earlier DIY search but cannot find it now. I'd appreciate a walk-through from you fine repair experts. I replaced a compressor clutch on a 92 Plymouth Acclaim but this one needs a special "remover" with outside threads it appears for pushing the pulley/clutch off. Any help from here would be appreciated! And keep up the fantastic work with this site!!!
