I believe the front dirver side tire must be removed in order to gain access to the battery.

The 1999 owner's manual says turn the steering wheel as far left as possible. Removing the wheel/tire is not required. Of course, when a battery replacement is needed, the engine can't be started so the power steering won't operate. Maybe removing the wheel is easier. Typical Chrysler engineering. Yes, I have one.

Taking the wheel makes it much easier. Be sure to block the opposite side rear wheel since you will be working under the jacked up car inside the wheel well. You will need a Phillips head screw driver and 3 different wrenches to get it out, 3/4" for the wheel nuts, 13mm for the bsttery hold down clamp/strap and 8mm for the battery cables. As the proud owner of a '96 JX I can strongly recommend removing the tire to access the battery. The battery is behind the plastic splash panel. Remove the numerous Philips head screws and wrestle out the panel. You'll then be able see the battery. Mercifully, by the way, jump starting can be done using the lugs under the hood on the left wheel well.
