If you look at the battery from the top, you will see on the side closest to the fender (away from motor) that there is a bracket that runs along side the battery. It is very hard to notice. You need to take a 10mm socket with a 6" or longer extension, and remove the nut that is on top of it, right at the bottom inside edge of the battery. This may be hard to see, and hard to get to. Unfortunately, that is the only way to remove the battery on that car

1)Remove serpentine belt from above with 14 mm wrench on spring
loaded idler pulley.
2)Disconnected battery
3)jack up car and remove passenger front wheel
4)it helps to also remove the wheel well splash panel also for better
5)crawl under car and remove battery and other connectors from the
alternator. then remove lower attachment bolts (I think there are 2
below to deal with-one is for a support bar, and one is an alternator
attachment bolt)
6)go back up to top of car and remove upper attachment bolt (this one
is a little hard to get to)
7)pull alternator out and have a alternator shop repair bad rectifier
board and any other items that need attention.
8)reinstall repaired alternator
9)leave splash cover off to provide additional cooling to the
alternator area. put wheel back on and lower car.
10) install new serpentine belt from above and reconnect battery.

If you have the time you could get the newer improved alternator from
6th planet. It has shields to improve the heat disipation.

Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

NAPA sells the replacement bushing ($20) better than Saturns $200 to replace both cables.

How do you remove the transmision valve body on 2001 saturn

You must remove the Trans pan, the valve body is inside the trans case under the pan, I would not suggest you do this job unless you have a high degree of technical skill, there are check balls and other factors that if not done right will cause the trans to not work properly.
