having read a few carguru posts have determined that there is a bar that must be removed with a couple of bolts holding this bar in...the trail gets cold as having difficulty coming up with pictures for ya~ at least the toyota van of the early 90's had a seat what pivoted forward to access, think yours is under the hood waaay back under the windshield, but like I say have been unable to find a suitable (or any) imagery of your situation~ BOLT IN BAR is the gig~

my 72 year old barber has one of these~...he ain't so good at parkin' it, the front plate is clobbered up beyond recognition....there really is NO LAW in this western town, only the kindness that you can sometimes find in your fellow human being~

"styled after a vacuum cleaner" the critics would say~

Maybe that one will work better. Pick year and model then press view manual. This will not show how to change but has other useful info that may interest you. Battery location is on page 6-8.

Yah....works....thank you...you know I always check to make sure the link hasn't landed in Bogus-land and sometimes have to give up all together and click the link myself...scoop the information and deposit it back...more runnin and squealin' involved, but takes the pain out of it....used to work with a guy who insisted that I check my own work again and again~yuk.

It's not hard at all. 2 bolts at the radiator wall & 1 under the fender, in the wheelwell. The windshield washer reservoir is attached to the bar, but there i s plenty of hose that it does not need to be disconnected, just set it aside. The battery is underneath--proceed as in any other replacement
