    I've loosened the wedge as far as it will go, but it will not loosen its grip on the battery. The bolt holding the wedge will not fully remove, making it difficult to pull the battery out.

    All set, got it fixed , Thanks!

    you say you removed the lower bolt to the tray , what about the little wedge piece down there , that wedge may be whats holding you up and the give it some persuasion sideways it will loosen up .

Remove the two condenser fan shroud upper mounting bolts (C) securing the condenser fan shroud, and loosen the two lower mounting bolts securing the condenser fan shroud, then remove the condenser fan shroud assembly, It comes out between the support where the hood latch is and the condensor. The book also says to remove the battery and the battery tray. But thats to remove the entire radiator. By taking the battery and tray out you will create alittle more room. You might have to drain some coolant and pop the upper hose off too. Than try taking the cooling fan assembly out than you should be able to get the condenser fan out

How do you remove the battery in a 2000 LS1 saturn?


If you remove the tray , the battery will still be stuck on it because of the metal covering the line of plastic which is on the battery.

There must be a rectangular box in front of the battery that slides up off a metal plate that is secured by the same bolt holding down the front of the battery. Once you slide off the rectangular box, the bolt is more easily accessible.

Undo the bolt, there's one at the base on the back (side of the connectors). You'll need a long socket wrench connector

I cant remove the battery fron its


On most there is a hold that bolts to the bottom of the battery tray with a 12mm bolt. This hold is hard to tell apart from the battery itself - same material, same color.look down on the bottom for a triangle shaped tab that has a bolt in the center, loosen this bolt and she should come out.

How do i remove mitsi gto gearbox


Remove air intake hoses to throttle body, remove battery tray, remove washer bottle attached to battery tray, remove clutch slave cylinder and compensator from the top of the tranny. Remove tranny gearchange control cables and hang up to one side.
Jack car up as high as you can and remove the wheels. DRAIN the gearbox (24mm not on bottom side).
Now go under the car and remove the starter motor, remove the exhaust front pipe (can unbolt from front CATs and let hang down), remove frame member and remove the plastic covers from the passenger side wheel well to get to the frame member. Remove the lower control arm bolts on both sides and let the control arms hang down. Disconnects both sway bars at the wheel hubs to allow the drive shafts to be pulled outwards. ease the drive shaft on passenger side out with pry bar and have someone pull on the hub to pop the drive shaft out. On the drivers side, you have to first remove the intermediate bracket on the block and then do the same thing with the drive shaft to pull it out.
Support the tranny with a jack.Remove the four bolts holding the tranny support bracket (covered with four grommets in passenger wheel well). Remove the three bolts from the top of the tranny and remove the bracket.

Now work your way around the tranny and remove the bolts holding it to the engine (there is a 10mm phillips screw/bolt holding a dirt sheild in place under the rear of the tranny, the other bolts are more obvious).

Tranny is now ready to be lowered to the floor using the floor jack.

Installation is the reverse of the above. Good Luck.

Battery appears dead in my v70


Hi,
The battery is located in the rear of the car under the storage tray (or under the third row seat foot tray if you have the third row option). Open the rearmost carpeted cover and undo the two twist fasteners on the sides of the storage tray or third row foot well tray. Remove the tray and you will see a black metal bracket to the left of the spare tire. There are two 13mm nuts and a 13mm head bolt holding this bracket in place. Remove these to take off the cover.

Jump starting is possible, but probably best from the engine compartment, between the engine lift loop (good negative earth point, and the positive side of the starter motor solenoid. This should be a large connection with a nut and bolt connection.

If the battery is past it's best - it would be better to replace it than try to charge the old one. They rarely recover 100% if fully discharged past 10.6 volts.
