Default How to replace saturn vue hybrid 12v battery

Does anyone have any instructions on how to change the 12v battery on the saturn vue hybrid?
I went to go change it and it was extremely tight and a couple of cables were in the way and it made me nervous about ruining something.
I'm not sure what can be disconnected without frying my system in some way.

If anyone has done this or has some kind of information it would be a big help.

thanks

Is there anything in your owner's manual about precautions when replacing it? If the manual's missing; http://www.saturn.com/owners/owner_r...s/manuals.html

I'm sure you replace it like any other battery.. Since batt's do explode from time to time, it's always wise to have a pair of safety glasses on ......
- disconnect the terminals from the cable clamps, tie them off to either respective side so they don't get in the way , remove the old batt, replace with new one and bolt up cables. If stuff is in the way or confusing- take notes, pics etc to help you with dis/reassembly.

I have replaced a car battery before and know the basics but there is something called an ECM(electrical control module) that is sitting on top of the battery and I need to move it some how.

thanks

There is no trick. \just remove the module the is bolted in-front of the battery.
Disconnect the battery, remove the bottom hold down bolt and pull the battery out. At first I was scared about the top module, but it is just 3 nuts and no disconnection is required.
