All you have to do is unscrew them and wiggle them out and replace. I did them on my 97 and they were pretty easy. The Rad doesnt have to come out. There are a couple of brackets that help hold the lines. You will see them once your under there and follow the line.

There are 2 brackets on my 96 SE and they are 8mm. other than that, disconnect the 2 lines from the right side of the rad and remove the hose clamps at the other end near the tranny and your good to go. It takes about 10 minutes or 1.25 beers to do this job.

i think mine were 10 mm bolts but w/e, its a fairly easy job.

and if you have a hard time finding pre bent lines, you can just buy 3/8 steel line and trans line by the foot. thats what i did. thats been on my buick since 04. and i double clamped each connection just for extra peace of mind.
