Battery removal on 2000 Chrysler Concord

I am trying to get to the battery on my 2000 Chrysler Concord so I can
remove it. The air filter unit is directly over the battery. I am
trying to remove the air filter unit, but can not figure out how to get
this little nipple looking thing removed from the right side of the
box. I've tryed allens, but since I cant really see any thing down
there (even with a flashlight) it is difficult to see if anything is
happening and I don't want to strip anything out. If anyone out there
knows how to remove the air filter box, please contact me. Thank you.

P.S. I do not have the owners manual for this car. I bought it used.

Tim

You may order an owners manual for your model year from DaimlerChrysler at
www.techauthority.com. They don't cost a lot, but you might find them a
little cheaper on ebay. You might be interested in purchasing a factory
service manual as well, highly recommended.

Before beginning the job of removing the battery, the wheels should be
pointed to the far right.

Re: the air filter box:, Loosten the air hose clamp and pull the hose off
the box. Move the hose enough that the box can clear the hose .

Next using gentle but firm force, lift straight up on the box, on the side
nearest the engine (driver's side of the box). Rubber receivers will allow
the box to come up when enough pressure is applied. Next move the box away
from the passenger side sidewall. Again, rubber receivers and posts hold
the box, with enough force they will separate. The air cleaner box can
then be lifted up and away. Good idea to check the air filter and turn the
box upside down to get rid of the crap that accumulates in the bottom. I
like to wash my box twice a year or so and replace the filter as
necessary.

There is a panel inside the wheel well that needs to be removed, it uses
either a socket wrench or a screw driver. Some recommend removing the
wheel, the book says this is not necessary. Remove the battery
tiedown(s). (If you have a battery heater option, this should be unclipped
and removed too.) The battery should be able to be slid back into the
wheel well and then straight up and out via the air cleaner box's space.

See other thread in this group which began on Friday, " 300 M Battery
Replacement? " Also do google searches on newsgroups for additional info,
this question gets asked a lot. Lots of good information about your car at
dodgeintrepid.net/forums (select 2nd Generation LH or the Concord forum,
almost everything applicable to 2nd gen Intrepid is applicable to your
car), and also at the 300m club.

Thanks for the help Greg. I found out the "simple" proceedure for
removing the battery in the posts you had mentioned earlier, but could
not figure out how to remove the air filter box. I guess I was
thinking too high tech. I guess that sometimes brute force still works
in hi tech.

Thanks again,
Tim
