My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. There will be a bolt that is attached to a wedge that is holding the battery in place. The bolt will be next to the battery and the black box. You may have to remove the black box to get to the battery hold down wedge. If you need further assistance with removing your battery, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
