My info says.
Remove negative battery cable then positive battery cable.
Remove plastic battery cover.
Remove battery hold-down retaining bolt and hold down bracket.
Remove battery from vehicle.

If the battery is a close fit, if you have battery top posts. There is a strap that fits over the top posts, allows you to lift the battery. Your local autostore should have one.
