To remove the battery in a 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix.

My car is a 1992 Grand Prix GTP 3.4L 5 speed.

1. Loosen the four screws that hold down the top of the air filter box. 2. Loosen the clamp that attaches the air filter box to the intake hose. 3. Disconnect the air sensor connector from the top of the air filter box. Note: Secure the connector wire, it tends to drop down and more than once I have had to remove the air filter box to retrieve it. 4. Remove the top part of the air filter box. You may need to twist it to get it to release from the rubber air inlet Hose.

5. Remove the two bolts holding the bottom of the air filter box. 6. Remove the bottom part of the air filter box.

7. Disconnect the negative then the positive battery cables.

8. Remove the three bolts that hold the brace that goes over the Windshield washer tank. 9. Remove the brace.

10. Remove the Battery hold down clamp at the base of the battery.

11. Remove the two nuts that hold the fuse box to the fender well. 12. Remove the two fasteners from the front of the widshield washer tank. 13. Rotate the windshield washer tank away from the battery. You may need to move the tank and lift the fuse box to get the tank clear of the battery. 14 Remove the battery.

To Install reverse the steps.

Time: 5 to 10 Minutes

Tools needed: a flathead screwdriver, 5/16 inch socket (battery posts) 1/2inch socket, socket wrench with an extension (needed to access the bolts on the bottom of the air filter box).

Note: It may be possible to remove the air filter box in one piece (skip step 1).

Note. Removing the air filter box allows easy access to the 5 speed manual Dipstick.
