How do i remove a battery from a 2002 chrysler concorde
Battery is behind the front left wheel. You have to remove the wheel to replace the battery. (you can access the battery w/out removing the wheel, but you can't actually get the battery out unless you take the wheel off.)
Once the wheel is off, remove the inner-fender well mud-guard and you will see the battery just forward of the wheel well. From there it's pretty straight forward.
Once this is removed, you should be able to see the battery hold-down bolts.
Remove these and remove the hold-down assembly.
If you are removing the battery, remove the 1st battery cable.
Depending upon what battery you have, you may be able to slide the battery back toward the wheel and disconnect the 2nd cable.
Jack the vehicle up, put on jack stands and remove the passenger side wheel.
On the front side of the wheel well there is an access panel that needs
to be removed in order to access the battery. There are 6-8 1/4" screws
to remove. Then manipulate the cover until you can remove it, bending it
If you were unable to disconnect the 2nd battery cable earlier, you can
now move the battery further towards the rear of the car. Remove the 2nd
cable clamp from under the hood.
Slide the battery all the way out. It is heavy!
