There is usally a nut (10mm) on top of the bolt, the bottom of that long bolt is curved like a hook and there is a cut out for it, loosen nut and remove the entire bolt clearing the way for your battery.

How hard or expensive is it to change a speed sensor in a 1991 Honda Prelude SI?

The speedometer sensor is located on the top of the transmission. It is held on by one bolt. Remove the bolt and gently pull and turn the speedometer sensor and the whole assembly will come out of your transmission.

Park your Honda Prelude on a level surface, activate the emergency brake and place blocks behind the back tires for safety. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a terminal puller.

Raise the vehicle on the side of the wheel speed sensor's location. Remove the wheel and tire assemblies.

Disconnect the sensor electrical connection from the wiring harness.

Take note of the connection location for the sensor retainers, grommets and clips. You will need to know this information for the installation process.

Start at the connector end of the sensor cable and remove grommets, clips and retainers in order to free the harness.

Unscrew the sensor mounting bolt and remove the sensor from the differential housing.

Install the new speed sensor by reversing the removal process. Loosely secure the sensor and sensor harness connection in place, taking precaution to keep the harness from twisting or bending. Once in place, torque the sensor mounting bolt to 16 foot pounds (22 Nm). Tighten any bracket bolts to 84 inch pounds (10 Nm).

Lower the vehicle safely and reconnect the negative battery cable. Refer to your owner's manual to perform an ABS system check to confirm that you installed the sensor properly.

Connect battery cables in 2004 Ford Expedition

Are you trying to jump it? Or are you replacing the cables entirely? If replacing them, (Read all my instructions for the cautions involved) then unscrew the negative post cable first and then your positive side from your battery. Be careful not to touch them together while your are taking the cables apart. Once the battery is not connected, find the easiest cable to replace first, I think it will be the negative. Do not connect the battery yet!!!!, second the red cable indicating the hot cable will be next. That cable might be longer because on fords, unless I am mistaken should be connected to the starter or on fords an external starter solenoid. Connect that. Once you have replaced both cables, it's time to connect the red cable to the battery. Be careful that the negative side cable is not touching the ground or vehicle because you will see a shocking spark. Once that is connected it's time for the negative side to be connected to the battery black side. The battery has positive indicators (+) and negative indicators (-) may be color coded also + (red) - (black). DO NOT CROSS THEM BECAUSE THE CHARGE MIGHT BE ENOUGH TO BLOW THE BATTERY ( DANGER) I cannot stress this enough. You do not want to be around when a battery blows. They are dangerous. Use caution ok. Don't be that person that goes to the hospital with burns from acid.

Dodge 1998 Caravan So we know HOW to get the alternator off....but not how to actually get to it. What is the easiest way?

Remove the negative battery cable and the drive belt. With the 2.4 liter engine, access is direct. With all of the v-6 engines, Chilton's manual says to remove the windshield wiper/motor module assembly first. Remove the alternator adjustment bolt, then the pivot bolt, then the wiring in that order. Replace in reverse order. Finally, check the operation of the alternator (engine running) --you should see 13.5 to 14.5 volts DC at the battery (recharge the battery with an AC powered charger first.) Don't depend on the alternator to recharge a deeply discharged battery. Hope this helps.

Need to change battery in 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Old battery seems to be stuck and won't come out. The tray holding the battery appears to have an edge that prevents the battery from being pulled out....

There should be a bolt on one side of the battery with a bracket that locks the battery in position. Use some WD40 on the bolt because it is probably rusted and will need to be treated before taking it out. Just unscrew it and take it and the bracket off and the battery will lift right out. Good Luck, RAC
