The CR2032 battery for this unit sits in a carrier tray that slides into the body of the unit.
There are no markings on either the carrier tray or the body of the unit that indicate whether the positive or negative side of the battery should be placed "up" in the carrier tray, which itself slides "upside down" into the unit.
Which way should the battery be placed into the carrier tray?

Hi. If it is a 3 button key blade version it will have a small cross head screw in the back of the main fob. Just undo the screw and the back comes off to reveal the battery. note which way up the battery sits and then slide it out of its carrier. slide in new battery and refit the back. I would have the new battery to hand and swap them straight over as quick as possible to reduce the chance of loosing the remote synchronisation which means you can start the cart but the remote buttons wont work until re syncronised, Jon
Remove the two 10mm bolts that hold the cables on and remove the battery cables (negative/black cable first).
at the base of the battery tray there is a hold down retainer. the retainer is like a half moon piece with a tab that hangs over the base of the battery to lock it in place.
looking at the car it will be on the front left side edge of the battery.
Lift the retainer out using a rotating motion towards the battery while pulling up on it. BE CAREFUL!!! it can take some force to remove and when it does your hand will hit the nearest bracket there.
to reinstall sit the battery into the back edge of the tray like sliding in a baking tray into a low oven. this will allow the battery housing to fit under the back lip of the battery tray.
Slide the battery all the way towards the outside of the fender (towards your right) and reattach the hold down by rotating downwards while pushing down.
reattach the battery cables and you're done. now hopefully you have the radio code... if not go by the dealer and they can get it for you (if you still have the factory radio).
As a side note, if the cables are badly corroded they can be cleaned with normal hot (almost boiling) water and a light brush. we use the hot water out of the coffee maker. when clean apply some battery protector (from any parts store) to keep the cables from oxidizing.
I use my pocket knife, simply pry gently where the two halves join and inside will be two coin sized batteries, I am thinking usually Cr2032, shop around they are cheap. Note which side goes down + or -
The battery hold-down is a plastic block at the base of the battery. If you look on the side of the battery opposite where the cables connect, you will see a really long bolt sticking up with an 8mm hex head. (SEE PICTURE BELOW) That is your hold-down bolt. It is designed so that when you unscrew the bolt from the battery tray, you simply lift up on the bolt and it will pull the plastic block up with it.
When reinstalling the battery, make sure you slide the battery base under the lip in the battery tray opposite where the hold-dow goes, then install the hold-down.
for my 93 I had to remove the back seat, under that there will be an access panel that is held down with Four screws, remove that, then disconnect the fuel lines and 2 plugs 1 is for your sending unit (fuel level and low fuel light) and the other is for the pump itself. after removing those there is 8 8MM bolts that hold your retaining ring down. Remove those and lift the ring, next gently lift the sending unit up enough that you can disconnect the fuel lines from the underside of the sending unit, disconnect the plug that runs to the fuel pump. The sending unit will slide out at that point, be careful with the rubber ring that seals the sending unit to the tank as mine was brittle. Also BE CAREFUL THE EDGES ARE VERY SHARP i have donated alot of blood to my car that way.
Once you have the sending unit out of the way you will see the fuel pump in its carrier there is a clip that you will depress on back side and the pump and carrier will slide out of the tray. Next take the carrier off of the pump. Do steps in reverse to install new.
Hope that helps you.
Remove the storage tray from the back of the driver and passenger seats.
This can be a trick in itself. You have to squeeze together some body
style clips with needle nose pliers going in from the bottom where the
tray section meets the seat fabric. When you get the right and left hand
side clips free the tray panel should just tilt out at bottom. Then
just slide the whole tray panel up and then you can pull it out. Now you
can get to the head rests. From the inside of the seat you can see the 2
head rest posts that connect to the cushion portion of it. Follow the 2
posts up until you see the black plastic sleeves they slide in. Take
some channel locks and grab the black sleeves and turn them (they only
turn one way) until the cut outs in the bottom of the sleeves are facing
the front and rear of the van rather than the right and left sides.
Once these are turned you can easily lift the whole head rest out.
The plastic piece is wedge shaped with a machine screw that runs down the middle. Your battery has a ridge that should lock under the edge of your metal battery tray, so the plastic wedge should force the battery back towards the edge of the metal tray.
Your power brake booster is bolted to the rear engine compartment, or firewall, from the inside , so you need to disconnect the rod from the brake pedal, and locate and remove the bolts that hold it. You also have to unbolt your brake master cylinder too.
