Notes from battery replacement 2001 Bonneville
Replaced the battery on the 2001 Bonneville earlier today. A few random notes:
5/16 socket for the battery post removal
13mm socket with extendios to remove the battery hold down
Hard to find battery because it requires special vents. Dealer prices is $180, only AutoParts store that stocked it in AZ was O'rielly, web-site cost of $149. Went to O'Rielly, they sold it to me for $119 (was super happy)
Replacement is super easy and clean. Pop out the bottom portion of back seat, remove old one and reinstall new one. No dirt to deal with, nothing in the way. Other than inspecting the terminals for battery corrosion, takes just a few minutes.
