Hey everybody, probably a silly question here. My battery in my '02 GA GT died tonight so I picked up a new one and I couldn't really see how the battery is held in the car so now my car is sitting dead in my parking spot. It's dark out now but I'm trying to figure out how to go about replacing the battery so I can gather up the right tools and do it quickly before work in the morning.

Can anyone help out with a quick walk-thru of removing the battery? Thanks a ton!!

There's a little rubber "bracket" that holds the bottom of the battery down. I think it's a 14 that holds it in.

The "bracket" is on the engine side at the very bottom of the battery, if you use a flashlight you can see it easily.

It's a 13mm or 1/2 inch bolt holding it at the bottom. You need a 5/16 for the terminal screws. Remove the negitive first.

Thanks so much for the answers! That's exactly the kind of advice I needed - I love the Interweb!!! :)
