Not too bad. It lifts straight out once the front compartment is
opened. The issue is that it is WAY down low. The current battery
doesn't have a handle so I have to use a battery lifting tool. That's
no issue now that I own the tool! The Mondial is another issue. The
battery is still down low but access is through the front wheel-well.
Sold that car!
