- COOLANT RESERVOIR

1997 GMC Safari

I'm needing to pull the coolant reservoir out because there seems to be a leak in it or in the hose connecting to the radiator. The top is secured to the body with a couple of plastic tabs. I've tried to pry them off but without any success. I'm NOT a wrencher but can't afford to take this to the shop. Does anyone know how to get these tabs out? I can't reach around the back side of them because of the body design. Thanks.

Get a flat head screwdriver and pry between the top of the tab and the bottom. It will pull out and look like a nail. This will release the tabs allowing you to remove the reservoir.
