Hi all,
Just joined today. Silver Graphite on order from Concord (CA) Saturn Dealer. When looking over the demo, I noticed that the battery is in a
very odd location that looks like a part of the right front fender has to be removed to get at it. Is this correct?:banghead:

We were told it only takes 16 screws being removed to access it. :willy:

Welcome to the forum. You'll love dealing with the folks at the Concord, CA store - that's where we got ours, they are great. You'll also like the silver graphite, I do !

Thanks for the reply. I am not use to being in a forum, so it took me awhile to see your reply.
Saw the pics of the "Batmobile". Your right, nice color choice. I didn't opt for the chrome wheels, but did order the spoiler. Been told the car should be here mid August.

Took a look at your gallery and the backround looks like the hills in Martinez/Pleasant Hills. We live in Concord near the Bart station.

Is the procedure you posted, printed in the owners manual or did you have to buy a seperate "service manual"?:confused:
