Yes, the only way is though the wheel well. You have to remove the wheel to make enough room to get it out. You also can remove the air cleaner box to get better access to the top post and hold down bracket. 4 thumbs up is appreciated if this helps.
You have to take the passenger front wheel off first. Then you un-screw
the paneling in the front of the wheel well and there you have it. The
battery is sitting right there ready for your removal. You have to
remove the air cleaner box as well to get to the retaining straps on the
top of the battery.
Check your started connections and battery connections ..
It is behind the front passenger wheel fender
The battery is buried within the front section of the passenger side front fender.
Disconnect the neg battery cable close to the firewall.
Remove the bolts holding the air cleaner assembly in place.
(Removing the air feed tube from the air cleaner assembly helps)
Once this is removed, you should be able to see the battery hold-down bolts.
Remove these and remove the hold-down assembly.
If you are removing the battery, remove the 1st battery cable.
Depending upon what battery you have, you may be able to slide the battery back toward the wheel and disconnect the 2nd cable.
Jack the vehicle up, put on jack stands and remove the passenger side wheel.
On the front side of the wheel well there is an access panel that needs
to be removed in order to access the battery. There are 6-8 1/4" screws
to remove. Then manipulate the cover until you can remove it, bending
If you were unable to disconnect the 2nd battery cable earlier,
you can now move the battery further towards the rear of the car.
The official way is to jack up the passenger side, remove the wheel and there is an access panel there. Remove the panel and slide the batterry into the wheelwell. Easy !! (What a pain)
After I did that once, I tried it from the top of the car. The air cleaner box is held into the side of the r by two rubber "prongs", but secured at the side nearest the engine with a third "prong" to a metal base that is bolted to the chassis. You can undo the bolt with a long extension socket, or you can try and pry the "prong" off the base.
You will also need to unscrew the screw clip that holds the main filter box top to the resyt of the air intake system
