Dumb question about removing battery

2001 Saturn L100. The battery is a side terminal battery within a simio-soft case. There is no hold-down on top of the battery. But it is definately held in somehow. Maybe I am behind in technology, but how does this battery come out?

There is probably a wedge shaped clamp at the base of the battery. That is how the last side post car battery I had was held down.

Dumb question about removing battery

[2001 Saturn L100] I think I found the clamp on the back side of the battery, away from terminals. However, I see no way to get to bolt. It is behind the headlight (driver side) and underneath some box that I can not find a way to remove. I tried removing the headlight assembly by removing two small bolts on top, but there is some connection on the side that I can not find.

Smile Removing battery on 2002 Saturn L100

Success. If standing in front of the car, there is a black box about 4 inches wide and 1.5 inches deep between the battery and the driver side lights. It slides up and off its bracket to expose the bolt holding the clamp. On the back left side of the black box, there is a tab that sticks into the bracket. You have to coax that tab from the bracket to slide off the box.
