Yes
VW Mechanic: Cardoctor74, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
If you look down at the base of the battery there should be a black block with a bold holding the battery down do you see that?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
No I don't see that. I can only see 2 sides of the battery--The front and left side. I tried to feel the right side but cannot get my hand in there nor along the back side.
