If it's the same conformation in the engine compartment as the 1998, the battery is left-front-corner under the cross-mount and the main power point box. To remove the battery, you first need to remove the gray-black plastic cover over the windshield wiper/firewall top area. That done, you remove the bolts that hold down the left cross-brace, and you remove the brace from the engine compartment. With the brace out of the way, and with the power box moved to the side, you have access to the battery and its clamping bolts. (There's a plastic clamping wedge down at the base of the battery that you'll want to remember to reinstall). Sounds complex; actually pretty simple.

The Starter, Is Bad.
unless there is noise coming from the timing chain, you should never need to replace it.
