Tip & How-To about Oldsmobile Intrigue

Changing battery in 2001 Intrigue

Remove the body brace over it. 1 bolt in the back, 2 in the front. Remove the battery mount. One bolt on the front of the battery (kind of faces the engine). Disconnect the battery lift out, replace. Reverse disassembly.

After removing the front bolts from the chassis crossbar, loosen the back one(s) so it will swing out of the way. You can squeeze the plastic retainer holding the front wire harness to release it, then it's just a matter of (carefully!) wiggling the battery into position to lift it out.

HOW TO TAKE OUT BATTERY 2003 OLDS SIL


Remove wiper assembly plastic cover. Then remove front bolt that holds the cross brace bar over the battery. Loosen the bolt at the other end of the brace bar and rotate brace bar from over the battery to a new location and proceed to remove the plastic battery hold down mount on bottom of battery.Disconnect the negative then positive battery cables from the battery then rotate battery up and out of compartment -- this is a very tight fit. It will come out and the clearance is very small. This is a neat challenge. Be sure to buy proper size battery for replacemeent

  4. Unplug the alternator wiring connector, then remove the battery terminal nut and wire.
  5. Carefully release the serpentine belt tension and remove the belt from the alternator pulley. Do not allow the tensioner to snap back into position once the belt is off the pulley.
  6. Loosen the alternator retaining bolts, then support the alternator and remove the fasteners. Remove the alternator from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Position the alternator in the vehicle and loosely install the retaining bolts.
  2. On 1994-98 models, tighten the top alternator bolt to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) and the bottom bolt to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  3. On 1999-99 models, tighten the rear bolt to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm) and the front bolt to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
