Thank You,Thank You, Thank You, Joe, I laughed loud and hard on how easy it was to change the battery. Even though my in my trade, I have to be mechanical, but when my baby has to be worked on I get all jittery.
But it was just as easy as could be. :tool: Thanks again! Now  :urock:

GJ is a tool, err a good tool hand, err a good..............   Damn can't say it with a straight face.


Lets start over

GJ is a good source of information and knows his way around these cars.  Just make sure he doesn't have:

1.  a magic marker
2.  Anything pink

I know this is old and thanks to the person that posted this but taking off the wheel and wheel well liner is much easier.

Finally replaced the battery in the GXP today (was still OEM). Thx @DeepBlueGXP for the videos, very helpful.

I will note that the top plug on the fender liner is a two piece unit in my case, where the middle part needs to be pulled out (or pushed from behind), then the second piece collapses on the back side and can be pulled out as well. IIRC, these were part of a fender liner update completed under warranty.

To anyone replacing the battery, trim removal tools are pretty much needed to get the fender plugs out.
