How do I change the battery on a 2002 hyundai Accent

I was able to get the clamps off the positive and negative areas, but there is a bolt on the bottom front side of the battery. This bolt makes it impossible to take the battery out and there is not enough room to use a wrench.

You will need to use a deep well socket and two extensions and a ratchet. Its a little tricky but it can be done. Thanks for Using FixYa!

How do I change the battery


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.

Changinjg battery ? under back seeat


It's on the passenger side, you lift up the bench (bottom) after you push back on the bottom front of the seat-do one side at a time, unhook it from the bottom front first, after you get both sides unhooked it just lifts up and off. then it is just a matter of unbolting the hold down and the battery clamps-do the positive post first, then the negative side. when installing, hook up the positive side first, then the negative side-clean those battery terminals inside and out with a wire brush or emory cloth, modern cars need really good electrical connections.

Can't figure out how to change the battery


I believe your question is more to the point of "How do I get access to the battery so I can change it out?"
It's ugly, but not THAT bad.
Standing at the front of the vehicle, the battery is under the "electrical center" to your left, on the passenger side. You have to get some stuff out of the way to get to the battery...
1. Remove keys from vehicle
2. Remove the plastic shield covering the wiper motor and linkage along the top-left of the engine compartment. This shield is just held in place with metal clips.
3. Remove the stiffening strut on the left side. This is the large metal tube that goes from the left-rear corner of the engine compartment to the front of the engine bay, next to the radiator cap. 3 large bolts hold this in place, you may need a 1/2" breaker bar to loosen them, with a 13mm or 15mm socket. Slide the bar out of the "electrical center" (fuse box) and out of the vehicle.
4. Move the Electrical Center off to one side. Nearly all of the electrical wiring for the vehicle goes through this, so there are lots and lots of wires to shove out of the way. Make sure the main positive feed at the front of the box is insulated and won't touch any metal parts when you twist the box out of the way. You may want to get a bungie cord to hold the box off to one side. If you have to remove that main feed to get enough slack to move the box, remember that this cable end is HOT, don't short it to anything! Cover that cable end with piece of rubber hose or some other insulator.
5. Disconnect the Negative battery connection. This is the connection closest to the side of the vehicle. Usually uses an 8mm socket to loosen it. Whatever tool you use, make sure that you don't short it to the positive side of the battery.
6. Disconnect the Positive battery connection. There should be a plastic safety cap over the bolt.
7. Loosen the battery hold-down bolt at the base of the battery, between the two cable connections.
8. Lift the battery out of the engine bay.
Now, you know why you should buy a good quality battery for this vehicle. Buy a cheapo, and you'll pay for more hard labor. :)
