Where the heck is the battery?!

Ok, folks...

Where the heck is the actual battery located and how do I get to it to replace it?

I found out from my dealer I can get the car load tested and if its low, I can replace the battery myself and bring them the receipt for payout, so I'm considering it.

Only problem is...I can't find the damn battery. LOL!

Thanks!
Mat

Haha, I had this same problem when I brought home my 2SS. I needed to jump start my old van and when I opened the hood, I saw the battery attachments in the hood, but no battery. I thought it was hilarious that Chevrolet provided a foam piece that looks like a spare tire in the trunk.

You'd have to cut her up though. Plenty of room in there but hell getting her through the opening.

Depends on your type of hooker. I'm not into the BBW. Just have to make sure you put her in before rigor sets in.

LOL! You guys are hilarious!!! I appreciate the info. Go figure I didn't go pulling out the floor of the trunk and all that yet. I looked back there real quick, but didn't see any big side panel that would indicate the presence of a battery. I didn't think it would be UNDER the floor mat/carpet.

Then someone said it might be in the front fender well and I might have to take off the fender to change the battery. :o Never heard of that one!

I'll check the trunk today. Hopefully no dead (or live) hookers back there. LOL!
So it was actually an OPTION to get a spare tire with these cars?! Are you kidding me?! Who's bright idea was that one????

Well don't look in the owners manual to find the battery, It's not in there.

There is not an option for a spare tire. I think they come with the v6 models though. V8's there is no spare tire.

Well, finally saw the battery. Yup, in the trunk. No dead or live hookers though. LOL

However, no spare tire. Just amazes me that it doesn't come with a spare tire. Here's a good question, where do they put the battery if the car does come with a spare tire?

Oh and the battery is still the original from 2010. So, now I'm paranoid on how much longer it's going to last. :-/

there rated at 5-6 years, for optimal performance. but you can go far over this if you got a gem. or you could last 1yr and be garbage.
