Hello
I am sorry but no such illustration exists. Replacing battery cables is considered to fall under general mechanical knowledge and is not outlined in any real detail in the factory service manual.

To replace the Battery cables follow the cables to their connection points on the engine, one is the engine block or Accessory bracket (Black Negative Battery Cable), and one (Battery Positive Red Cable) is going to the starter Battery post, use the correct cables not generic ones if they are available, pay attention to routing of the cable, if the cable is in a "Cable Clamp" or has heat shielding on it or a plastic abrasion tube make sure you transfer that to the new cable and route the cable through the Cable clamps on the engine just like the old cables. You will need the car off the ground to do this job, make sure you use safety stands and have it properly supported on them. Make sure you use Baking Soda to neutralize any Acid on the Battery or in the Battery Tray and make sure that the Negative cable connection on the engine is clean and free of rust. If you follow these instructions you will do just fine.
