Under the right rear seat cushion, lift up on both sides of the seat to remove. remove the vent tube, disconnect the cables(8mm or 5/16), and remove the holdown and bolt(13mm). Shimmy the battery up, and out. Watch that it hasn't leaked. Some have been bad enough to corrode through the floor pan.

To access the car's battery, pull the straps on either side of the rear-seat cushion. This releases the cushion; you'll see the battery beneath.
