Q: where is the battery mount? on 2002 Volkswagen EuroVan

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
to remove the battery, the manual says to remove the battery mount, where is it?

My question was vague...I was actually looking for the battery mount. I called Barber VW in Ventura, Calif. and the parts rep told me that there is a bolt near the front of battery area that when loosed will release the battery for removal. Thanks for the reply!

On my VW Eurovan, there was a black plastic electrical 'compartment' with several thick wires leading to this. The whole box came out after I pulled directed upward. It was sitting on a metal bracket and after removing/moving the thick wires that were leading to the black pastic box I could see a single bolt which held the metal bracket on, this bracket was holding the battery in place and after unscrewing it the whole battery came out without a problem. Hope this helps!

The battery is in the engine compartment under a black cover on the driver's side of the engine compartment. It is to the right of the brake master cylinder resivioir and coolant expansion tank.
