I do not know your engine size so I have included instructions for the 3.8L engine ONLY.

If your engine size is different let me know so I can repost the correct instructions for your engine size.

3.8L ENGINES:

REMOVAL:
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the serpentine belt(s) from the crankshaft pulley. Please see .
Raise and safely support the vehicle.
Remove the right front tire assembly. Remove the right inner fender access cover.
A flywheel holding device such as GM's J 37096 is required to keep the crankshaft from turning as the crankshaft balancer is being removed. Install this holding tool or its equivalent. Please see for more information.
Using a 28mm socket, remove the crankshaft harmonic balancer retaining bolt. Using special tool J 38197 or equivalent balancer removal tools, drawn the balancer from the end of the crankshaft. Please see for more information.
There is a roughly circular aluminum shield that protects the crankshaft position sensor; remove this shield. Use care not to damage it. Do not pry to remove.
Detach the electrical connector from the crankshaft position sensor, remove the attaching bolts and separate the sensor from the engine block face.
