It is correct that your battery is UNDER your backseat.

Just remove the seating of the backseat.
You have to pull the seating up.

RE: car battery location

There are 2 metal clips, one on the right and one on the left of the bottom of the bench seat. Pry with a flat head screw driver at these points and the seat will break free. Then pull bench forward.

THAT is not nesseccary!! That way you could damage your seating!!

Just pull the seating at the front up! A little hard and you geel when it's loose!

NEVER use a screwdriver!! You only damage your seating!!

Don't jump start...

If you looking for your battery to jump start another car....I wouldn't recommend it. You could possibly fry your electronics doing so.
