Question about 1998 Ford Taurus
We are looking for the battery hold down clamp and do not know what it looks like any help?
Well i have seen two types.
1 is just a rigid plastic bar placed across the battery (normally between the battery holes or the square cover of the holes) then they have holes on each end and two long bolt with a bend at the ends to hook up on holes at the bottom where you put the battery. these bolts comes out in the hole of the horizontal plastic and have threads so you can put washer and nut on it to secure the battery down to its place.
another thing that is saw is basically the same as the one described above except that instead of just a horizontal rigid plastic bar, this one is a rigid plastic also but it holds onto the whole battery. is is like a rectangular plastic that you place on top of the battery and ;again , they have holes on the sides to fasten it using the long bolts with bends on the ends and catches the hole on the metal where you place your battery.
whew.. i hope i was able to really let you visualized what i am talking about.
tnx 4 using fixya,

You have to Remove the Passenger Headlight to get to one side of it and remove the battery terminal and the battery tie down. then there is a section of the wheel well in front of the passenger tire, that has to be removed. I would suggest turning the steering wheel hard to the right and jack up the front of the car to give you self some room to work. once you remove the panel you should have access to the other battery terminal. I also removed the air box above the battery just to give my self some handling room, which just snaps in place. Then you should be able to worm the battery out from the wheel well.
