How do you remove the rear seat cushion to replace the battery in a 2000 Buick Lesabre?
Reach down in the bite-line (where the seat cushion and the seat back meet). Pull up on the seat cushion until the cushion raises above the bottom of the seat back. Pull the seat cushion towards the front. There are two metal tabs that are hooked into the front of the seat cushion that holds it in place; unhook these by moving the cushion forward. To replace, reverse the procedure, but make sure the seatbelt recepticles are exposed before pushing the seat cushion down into the bite-line.

Just pull! Use a screwdriver carefully to release the plastic achors. Good luck Willy Kei Just pull! Use a screwdriver carefully to release the …plastic achors. Good luck Willy Kei
Remove any braces that block access. Remove the ground (neg) cable first, then positive cable. Taking a ratchet with a 12" extension and a 13 mm deep socket, remove the batte…ry hold down bolt and bracket at the bottom of the battery. Reverse the procedure; installing the ground cable last. I hope this helps you. Mark It is under the back seat on the driver's side, not under the hood. Rob You also have to remove and reconnect the hoses that vent the acid vapors to the exterior. Very important step, as you do not want these toxic gases polluting the cabin of your vehicle. The great part about the battery being under the back seat is that you can even do this procedure in the rain. The bad part about it is that you cannot stand up. You will be hunched over the whole time, and probably on your knees. Not recommended for those of us who are "larger than the average bear." This battery is very expensive. It is a 100 class battery with 770 CCA. You will not find it at Walmart. No matter where you go, you will pay at least twice as much as you would for an ordinary battery. At the GM dealer, be prepared to pay almost three times as much for the thing to be installed. I got over fairly easy. The GM dealer was going to charge me about $200 for the battery to be installed. I went to an Interstate Battery dealer at Christmas time and got an AARP discount. I paid $150 plus tax. That was $120 for the battery and $30 (1/2 hr labor) for the installation, because I was at the mercy of the shop where my battery died that day. I still saved $50 over the dealer price.
The battery is located under the rear seat cushion. To remove, place your hands in the "bite" of the rear seat-back, and the rear seat; pull the seat up and away fro…m the seat-back. The seat will come loose and the battery can be accessed. Edit: Thanks for this answer. Some observations for when I tried it: The "bite" is referring to the place where the seat and back cushions meet. Reach down in there, and give the bottom cushion a good upward yank. You'll feel and hear some snaps coming undone. You may have to pull from different places, i.e. left, right and middle, in order to get the whole seat to come up.
try this First make sure the parking brake is OFF, then remove the caliper and use a C-clamp to SLOWLY depress the piston until it is flush with the caliper surfa…ce. Second, on some vehicles however you may need a special tool to turn the piston to depress it. Third, consult a repair manual as the procedure may be different still.
Lift up on the front of the rear seat; give it a bit of a quick jerk and then lift up, much like a hood or trunk. You can then slide it forward and tilt against the back… seats to access the battery. Buckle seat belts prior to reinstalling seat to avoid headaches in lining up the buckles, etc.
Answer The battery for the Buick LeSabre (2000) is located under the rear seat cushion.
the battery in under the rear seat all you do is left on the front of the bottom part of the seat and BING BOUTA BOOM theres the battery, just undo the mount, and untightin th…e battery terminals and get ER DONE Not so FAST! This car requires a VENTED BATTERY. This vents the battery gases out the bottom of the vehicle. A conventional battery's out-gassing to the interior of the car would be extremely dangerous, and would eventually ruin the interior of the car.
its under the back seat on the passenger side
The calipers are threaded and screw out.
$1000 I know this because I just got 2 quotes for it. Try to see if it can be REPAIRED instead by a professional bumper repair place-it will probably then cost half… as much!
