Default 2005 Bonneville Battery and Fuses Backseat

Well, I knew the battery was under the backseat.
But, I never actually looked until today.
It sounds like this is true for 2000-2005 Bonnevilles
I didn't see any pictures on this website after a search....

Anyway, while I had my camera out for my little blower fan problem...
I snapped a few pictures for the rest of us that never looked under the seat before.

The back seat is easy to remove. It'* very light. Do not be afraid.
It'* held down by a couple spring clips. Just pull upwards on the front of the back seat.
And under the seat... yes! You've read about it! You've dreamed about it! The battery! and most of the interior fuses.
The fuse cover is removed by squeezing the clips on each side inwards. (same as the fuse box under the hood.)
There'* a nice chart under the cover. Be warned, the chart seemed to be "upside down" for me.
There'* a fuse puller in there and spare fuses.

The cover seems like it expects you to be kneeling on the center console to look at it properly.

Exactly! Strange isn't it?

When you say the "front" of the back seat, do you mean where the cushion meets the back or the front where your legs are?

You just pull up without unlatching anything?

What;* the procedure for putting it back on?

Funny, I know I read my whole manual, but I dont recall there being a page on this.....I will have to recheck it.

Front, as in the part you sit on. Lift the front, as in the part towards the front of the car.

You just give it a little tug straight up, and it lifts out. There'* no latch, just a spring loaded clip.

I haven't put mine back yet, but you put the back end under the seat back. Then push done on the front until it snaps in.

Once you have the seat out, you can see the square holes in the floor board and the spring clip under the seat.
