The cables are held to the battery with bolts An 8mm box end wrench will fit these bolts. If you haven't removed them do so, then the battery should lift straight out.

Hi, on some car the POSITIVE spits up and fits into a connector. be sure you do'nt SHORT THIS LEAD TO EARTH. THE BATTERY CAN PRODUCE 700 amp and more when SHORTED TO EARTH. when working with BATTERIES the NEGATIVE is the first cable to be taken OFF. because if the negative is connected the POSITIVE can easily be SHORTED TO THE BODY. you do'nt mean the battery clamps are tight, bolt on clamps sometimes can stick, just need to turn terminals to ease them off. if you are careful undo the bracket. gerry
