Question about 2004 Chevrolet Venture Passanger
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.

Should be no problem to do yourself. Very straightforward. Just remember to take the negative cable off first and put it on last.

Just got out the battery of the 2004 Chevy Venture. 1. Take out the bolts of the cross brace. LIke you said back bolt is a 13 mm and need an extension. Front 2 bolts are 10 mm 2. Take out the bolt for the fuse box on the left, bolted to the frame, its a 10 mm. 3. Slide the cross brace off from the clips of the fuse box. 4. Use an 8 mm to remove the battery terminals. 5. Use a 13 mm to remove the bolt holding the battery bracket in located at the very bottom (warning: this is a super long bolt and the clamp piece comes off completely) 6. Push the fuse box out of the way and take battery out diagonally as the left side is covered by the frame. Lastly I did not need to disconnect the fuse box terminal but that might make it easier. For this I also did not need to remove the resevoir.

1st remove the positive wire from the post. Next remove the negative wire. Next remove any retainers that are holding the battery in the mount. After you free the battery, remove it from the vehicle. Reverse order of removal to replace. reset clock, and radio settings. IF your radio has an anti-theft device and it becomes active due to the absebse of power (battery removal) you may need to contact your dealer for the code to release the device. Good luck, I hope I have helped.

we took n grinded the lttle stud off the bracket that goes on transmission and put a bolt with a locking nut on it. it was much simpler then changing whole cable

SOURCE: how do i change the
take the front motor mounts loose and lift on the transmission pan with a jack and a block of wood, this will cause the engine to rotate forward and allow for more clearance
