Here are the items you'll need for this repair: 10mm socket, ratchet, socket extension

Your battery is located in the trunk. Lift up the cargo cover or the rear carpet here, you'll find our battery underneath.

Using a 10 millimeter socket and ratchet, disconnect the ground for the battery first. Lift up, and hang it out of the way where it won't get damaged. Same 10 millimeter socket over here on the positive side. Loosen that up as well. Remove it. You may have to work these side to side a little to get them to come off.

At the rear of the battery you'll find this 10 millimeter bolt, which we'll remove with a socket, a ratchet, and a long extension. Once the bolt is out remove, that hold down. Normally your battery would have a handle here, but ours is missing, so we'll simply lift up and remove the battery from the tray.

If you have a new battery simply lower it back in. Slide it to the back and into this edge, and you'll see that it hooks in. You can't get it out anymore. Drop your battery hold down back over the opening for the bolt. Reinstall your 10 millimeter bolt with your socket, ratchet, and extension. Just bring that down tight until your battery's nice and secure. Reinstall the positive terminal on the battery first. We'll tighten that down with our 10 millimeter socket and ratchet.

Once the positive side's on, be sure you have your key in hand in case your vehicle has an alarm, because this will set it off. Install the negative terminal. Tighten that back up with your 10 millimeter as well. Make sure your battery terminals are nice and secure and lower the rear carpet back into place. Close your trunk lid.
