Re: Changing battery in 2004 Bonneville
Where did you read this info.? In the owner's manual that comes with all cars and is usually in the glove compartment, it should give you a lot of the info. that you are asking about. Usually, something like changing the battery which is going to have to be done more than once in the lifetime of a car; would not be extremely difficult. I have removed rear seats and it sounds worse than it is. If you have done very much work on a car, you know that the #1 thing that you are always told to do is to disconnect the negative battery cable; even if what you're doing is something like changing the tire, oil, etc. Just use some common sense and you'll be fine. Be sure that you don't touch the cables to each other or metal, but it sounds like you know that since your main concern if the seat.

Pull the fron of the seat straight up. There are two clips holding it.
Underneath you'll see the battery and a fuse block.
The cable and holddown clamp is pretty obvious.
Make sure you get the right size battery.
Also loosen the ground strap and inspect for corrosion and retighten.
the battery is located under the rear seat cushion on your cadillac deville, to remove the rear seat cushion just pull up on the front of the cushion to release it and pull it forward. you will see the battery and a fuse block.
there are also terminals under the hood that run directly to the battery for jumpstarting but going to the battery itself is the best way. those re-located terminals don't usually work because the amperage has to travel pretty far to get to the battery.
