remove the positive cable first, then the negative. Please award points if this helps

You'll need to remove the side cover, or at least the three screws connecting it on the front (just inside the wheel well), and the one at the top back (just behind the weather strip for the hood that comes down to the top of the side cover). There's also a screw at the bottom of the cover. This one's a pain to loosen or remove. It can only be accessed from the side. I've just loosened it on mine so the side cover bends out enough to remove the battery. I have never re-tightened that bottom screw and had no trouble with the side cover staying in place.

Jesse--the bottom screw=same head pattern as the wheelwell screws? You mention access from the side. looks like it would be from the bottom up. can you explain further? thanks, Norm

Going from memory on my '91 I think you can get in to that side bolt with a 10mm open end...
