How do I get the battery out of a 1996 Chevy Monte Carlo LE?
My neighbor's in a wheelchair, and this is his car, so having a dead car is a nightmare for him. A few weeks ago he tried to turn the engine over and it just clicked. Tonight we were able with great muscles (I am a woman!) to remove the metal bar etc. and expose the battery) to jump the battery. After about five minutes, the engine tried to capture but then it started to click. My problem is I can't get the battery out. Do you think it is the battery? Help!
Sure does sound like the battery is dead. You will need to remove the engine brace on driver's side (The black bar that goes over the white washer fluid tank). Remove the washer fluid tank and then the battery can be removed.
There is a black rubber hold down bolted to the battery tray. Its near the bottom of the battery closest to the passenger side of the car.
