Hold down clamps will not remove to replace battery, 2002 malibu

First off , the battery cover should be removed and the "hold down" clamp is at the base of the battery and it would be shaped as a large triangle with a bolt through it.
Be sure and remove the negative battery terminal first and then the positive. Installation is the opposite , positive first and then the negative.
The bolt should be loosened enough so that the "hold down" clamp comes right out.
Your saying you can't get the "hold down" clamp removed. Do you mean the bolt will not turn or it turns but not enough to remove the clamp? More information would help.

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.
8. Remove the three bolts that hold the brace that goes over the Windshield washer tank. 9. Remove the brace.
10. Remove the Battery hold down clamp at the base of the battery.
11. Remove the two nuts that hold the fuse box to the fender well. 12. Remove the two fasteners from the front of the widshield washer tank. 13. Rotate the windshield washer tank away from the battery. You may need to move the tank and lift the fuse box to get the tank clear of the battery. 14 Remove the battery.
To Install reverse the steps.

Himself has tried to replace the battery on the 03 frelander. managed to get the top bit holding the battery off but the bolt holding th batery into the clip won't undo - just spins around any ideas?!

If you are talking about the battery clamp bolts turning, then put a screwdriver in the split of the clamp and try to put turning pressure on the screwdriver and at the same time undo the nut of the clamp bolt. Or if you have a pair of mole grips, clamp the bolt head and undo the nut. Worst case , pry the clamp off the terminal and use a hacksaw and cut the bolt in half and remove it , fit a new bolt after. Hope that helps

  • Loosen the battery negative terminal clamp.


  • Use a terminal clamp puller to remove the negative cable.


  • Loosen the battery positive terminal clamp.


  • Use a terminal clamp puller to remove the positive clamp.


  • Remove the battery hold-down hardware and any heat shields.


  • Remove the battery from the tray.


  • Install the new battery into the tray.
  • Also install the hold-down hardware.


  • Install the positive battery cable.
  • Then install the negative cable.
  • When installing a battery, be careful to observe the correct polarity. Reversing the cables destroys the diodes. Proper polarity must also be observed when connecting a booster battery, positive to positive and negative to ground.

  • Coat the terminals with corrosion preventative spray, then check the job by starting the car.
