    What an assinine engineering solution for Buick. The battery has to be tipped up on end to get it out and when you do that, battery acid leeks out the vent holes!

ASE Mechanic:
unfortunately yes. the fuse box is held by half moon clips and slides out of the way, a little bit. and the bracket has three bolts in it and that comes out all the way. yes there is hardly any room but it is managable.

How do I get the battery out of a 2006 Monte Carlo. It is too tight to get it out. Do we have to remove the Fuse Box.

Hello: Yes just move the fuse box aside, remove the brace the fuse box was attached to. Remove the hold down clamp that holds the battery, turn the battery up on end and pull it (battery) out. Go back in the same way.

Location of the negative terminal on the battery of a 2004 montana

To get to the battery is not hard but it requires removing a few items. I just did this last night.
First remove the black plastic cover from the wiper mechanism. This just slips off. No tools required for this item. This cover is located as you stand in front of vehicle with hood raised on the same side as the battery. It is a long triangle shaped piece.
Second remove bolt that holds the electrical fuses that sit on
top of the battery. It is just one screw that holds this. It is located just below, toward the headlight. It bolts to the body of the vehicle.
Third remove the cross brace. This is the black pipe looking object going diagonal across the top of the battery that connects to the body of the vehicle. There are two bolts in front and one larger bolt in rear. To get to the rear bolt is the reason for removing the wiper mechanism's cover.
Now you should be able to slide the cross brace out of the clips for the electrical fuse box. Now you can just move the fuse box
out of the way and now you see the negative terminal of the battery.
Lot of work just to get to the battery!!
Hope this helps.

1. Loosen the four screws that hold down the top of the air filter box. 2. Loosen the clamp that attaches the air filter box to the intake hose. 3. Disconnect the air sensor connector from the top of the air filter box. Note: Secure the connector wire, it tends to drop down and more than once I have had to remove the air filter box to retrieve it. 4. Remove the top part of the air filter box. You may need to twist it to get it to release from the rubber air inlet Hose.
5. Remove the two bolts holding the bottom of the air filter box. 6. Remove the bottom part of the air filter box.
7. Disconnect the negative then the positive battery cables.

How can i change the battery for chvy venture 2001 extended van

  1. The battery is left-front-corner under the cross-mount and the main power point box.
  2. To remove the battery, you first need to remove the gray-black plastic cover over the windshield wiper/firewall top area.
  3. That done, you remove the bolts that hold down the left cross-brace, and you remove the brace from the engine compartment. With the brace out of the way, and with the power box moved to the side, you have access to the battery and its clamping bolts.
  4. There's a plastic clamping wedge down at the base of the battery that you'll want to remember to reinstall.
  5. Sounds complex; actually pretty simple.

Is there a special way to replace battery in 2002 rendezvous

It's a little tricky. you need to remove the cross member (black pipe) that connects from the front to the passenger side. You might want to un-snap the fuse box and lay it aside first. Now you should be able to remove the battery retainer and slide the battery upward.
I got lucky when mine needed to be replaced, the auto parts store swapped it no-charge.

Want to change the battery on a chevy 2004 venture by myself

be prepared to spend on hour or two (I know it sounds excessive, but with the venture, it's necessary). Make sure you've got a full set of sockets ready. The battery, as you know, is in the front left corner of the engine compartment. You need to make sure the van is COLD (as in, has not been running for at least 6-8 hours), as you have to move the coolant resevoir out of the way (it is held onto the diaginal cross brace with a slip on bracket). then you need to remove the bracket itself. Once you get there, then the battery is finally accessable. Using a long socket extension, you can remove the clip for the battery (on the rear of the battery if memory serves), then remove the wires, and take the battery out. Installation is the reverse of removal (obviously) :)
BEFORE removing the battery, however, if you have a Delco radio (the factory radio) make sure you get the lock code, otherwise, you'll spend big $$ at the dealership to have them find it for you. (or get a new aftermarket radio) Check out the owners manual to find out how to get this code.

2005 battery replacement

Yes you do need to remove the brace "bar" above the battery. If I am not mistaken, the fuse box also has to be relocated for clearance. One thing you must do before you start is disconnect the negative cable from the battery. The negative cable is the black one. One of the oldest rules when working on any vehicle battery is negative is disconnected first and reconnected last. Since the vehicle is "negative ground" it will make it impossible to short negative to ground. The bolts that hold the bar in place are either 13mm or 15mm. The battery is held in place with a plastic wedge that is held down with a 13mm bolt. The battery cables are 8mm.
