We bought our 2001 Aztek used. It did not come with an Owners manual. So we bought one on CD. Just in the event we needed to do something like replacing the battery. Unfortunately it does not tell you how to replace the battery. I am quite capable of taking things apart until it will come out. It would just be nice to know the simplest method. After searching I foud this; I had to do this (subject line) at work today and thought I'd post it for the heck of it (and for the groups.Google archive) It was a 2001 model but that shouldn't matter. It's about a 20 minute job with the RIGHT tools. 1. Use 10mm ratcheting box wrench to detach fuse block from fender, then "move" it a little out of the way. 2. Use 3/8" drive air-ratchet with 12" extension and both a 13mm swivel socket and 10mm swivel socket to remove the strut tower brace bolts. 3. Use the above, with the 13mm, to remove battery hold down bolt and wedge. 4. Use 5/16" ratcheting box wrench to remove battery cable terminal bolts from battery. 5. Carefully using both hands, tilt inner (closer to engine) edge of battery up at about a 30 to 45 degree angle, then remove battery. Reverse to install. (never TIGHTen things with an air-ratchet, though ;-) )
