First it's battery...

I'm trying to remove this to remove the resonator... and to get prepared to install CAI. I was wondering if it's right to remove that lock nuts that are holding the cables (as shown below). And, is there anything dangerous that could happen while removing and moving battery? Any caution I should take?

Next is headlight bulb.

I already took out the black connector that connects to the bulb. And... I was wondering if I should remove those 2 screws to take out the bulb? I heard that there is way to remove it just by twisting it, but it doesn't seems to work (or is it just for 1st gen Tibby?)

Alright don't remove any screws to take the headlight bulb out. The silver metal clip that holds the bulb in there can be unlatched on the left side (from looking at your picture) and then you will be able to just lift the clip up and the bulb will pop out. Anyway hope that helps.

I think that that red piece over the battery terminal is ther just to keep it clean and to let you know which side is the positive side. I took mine off and installed a Monster Cable terminal. I will post pics when I get some...

Drive it like you stole it.

As far as removing the battery? those arnt locking nuts, just use a 10mm ratchet and spin them loose. You don't have to take the screw all the way off, just loosen it and they will pop off. after that ther is a 12mm bolt at the front of the battery down at the bottom that holds it in place with a little clamp. pull that out aswell. as far as anything "Dangerous" that could happen? No.... just do the NEGATIVE (-) one first, and then the POSOTIVE (+). Oh yeah... and don't drop a wrench between the two batter terminals! unless you want your own personal firwoks show in your garage... Good luck, and happy tuning...

NOS!...I Need NOS!....And I Need It By Tonight...
