It would be helpful to anyone looking at your request to give a few details! I am assuming that you mean the bracket that is the hold-down bracket either oin the bottom edge of the battery or across the top. If it is a bottom bracket that presses into the groove of the battery, you need along extention with a 3/8 or close to that size socket. Loosten the bolt quite a bit until the battery is able to be wobbled from under its clinch. If it is the bracket across the top the bolts are on the bottom of the two down rods and can be loostened with the 3/8 inch open end wrench until the side rods offer enough play to push the top cross piece over the battery edge.

What is holding the battery in the tray and what size is the nut? I think one would need an extension?

you will need an extension and a1/2"(13mm)socket to remove the bolt/nut holding the battery hold down plate.there should be nut along the long side of the battery on one side or the other of the battery,remove this and then remove the hold down plate then you can remove the battery.

Remove and replace alternator

you didn't mentioned what type of vehichle or year, but most of these you will have to remove the tension from the belt tensioner, to do so, you will need a 13 - 15" size metric wrench, or 3/8 size ratchet, and a 13- 15" size metric socket , and hold back on to the tensioner towards the drivers side of the engine, this releases the tension from the belt, and then let the serpentine belt lay aside, then disconnect the negative battery cable from your battery, and then disconnect the wiring from the back of the alternator, and remove the hold down bolts that hold the alternator in place, then lift alternator from bolted on area, then install new alternator, plug up wiring at back of it , bolt the alternator back on, and then with a 13 -15 " metric wrench or socket, hold back on to the belt tensioner, and then slip the belt back into position, and release the tensioner slowly against the belt, make sure that the belt is lined up correctly on all of the pulleys, then reconnect the negative battery cable, then start the vehicle up., and check that the belt is operating ok. afterwards, you will most likely have to reset your radio functions , due to the battery cable being disconnected.

I can't figure out how to remove the battery from my 1993 Saturn. I don't have a lot of options; I'm a female,no man to call to help with this so real step by step instructions would be great. If I can...

If you don't already have a new battery...your best option is to price one at your local auto parts store...most of the national parts AutoZone will install your new battery for free...:) You need to first disconnect both of the battery` cables...these bolts are 5/16 inch socket size...there are battery bolt terminal wrenches available for about $4...then you can safely inspect the hold down cage...(yes needs to be removed) and the actual battery hold down bolt located at the bottom of the terminal side of your battery...this bolt is usually 13mm...a deep well socket or 12 inch extention can make this bolt removal sure not to store your new battery on the ground...(cement) this can affect the life of the battery...Hope this helps...:)

How to change spark plugs... 2003 ES300


You need New Spark Plugs, Spark Plug Wrench Socket and Wrench Extension (at least 2-3 inch) size 10 socket and/or size 12 socket.
First of all, please check where the spark plug cover is. Once you figure that out there will probably be size 10 or/and 12 bolts holding it down. Take that off and there you will see sensors connecting to each other and holding the spark plug in the cylinders. Unplug all the sensors and pull out the circular plugs holding the spark plugs down. Pull them out and make sure that you don't drop anything into the cylinderes. You can look down into them and see the spark plugs. Get your spark plug wrench, extension, and socket wrench and stick them down in and push so that the spark plug wrench grabs them. Then unscrew the plugs, pull them out and put the next ones in and tighten them down. Just connect all the sensors, and put the cover back on.

Thanks for using FixYa and do rate if found this solution helpful.

At the top center of the battery, if you push the air filter housing back a little you will see a bolt. You need a ratchet with an extention and a socket, about 5/8 but cant remember exactly. Loosen the bolt dont remove and it will release the battery.
