DESCRIPTION

The battery is mounted in a molded plastic tray (Fig. 5) located in the right front corner of the engine compartment. Two T-bolts that are part of the battery hold down hardware are assembled to the battery tray before the tray is installed in the vehicle.

The battery tray is secured by three hex nuts with coned washers to three weld studs located on the front extension of the right front wheelhouse inner panel, forward of the right front wheel.

A hole in the bottom of the battery tray is fitted with a battery temperature sensor. Refer to Battery Temperature Sensor in the index of this service manual for the location of more information on the battery temperature sensor.

OPERATION

The battery tray provides a mounting location and support for the vehicle battery. The battery tray also provides anchor points for the battery hold down hardware. The battery tray and the battery hold down hardware combine to secure and stabilize the battery in the engine compartment, which prevents battery movement during vehicle operation. Unrestrained battery movement during vehicle operation can result in damage to the vehicle, the battery or both.
