OK - now how do I get the access panel in the floor open?
Expert:  Eric replied 3 years ago.

Hi,

 

There is one retaining screw to remove. Then lift up on side that had retaining screw and pull up and away to remove it(yellow highlights retaining clips that are freed when pulling up and away)

ok - I saw that, but do I need a special tool to remove the "retaining screw" or is that an allen wrench?
Expert:  Eric replied 3 years ago.

Hi,

 

It will either be a standard allen screw or a torx screw - i have seen both used on the enclave battery cover.

 

You just need either the appropriate allen wrench or torx wrench to remove it.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

ok - thanks I have both of those.

Just in case you were wondering who is asking these silly questions -----

I'm a young widow woman trying to save a little repairman money.

Expert:  Eric replied 3 years ago.

Hi,

 

Glad I could help you out on this. Just remember to make sure the ignition is off before replacing the battery.

 

If you run into any problems, let me know and I can walk you thru it

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Oh yah - good point - ignition off!

OK - I won't "accept answer" until I'm done, which may take awhile because first I have to feed and put the kids down for a nap.

Expert:  Eric replied 3 years ago.

Hi,

 

that is fine. I will be here most of the day if you do run into an issue with it. Below in pdf format are step by step directions for the battery replacement.
