    Behind the passenger seat, on the shelf, there's a speaker enclosure. Turn on the radio and listen, you'll hear the speaker. You have to slide that panel forward carefully because the speaker wires are right there. When you have it released, disconnect the speaker. There's the battery. Make sure you use a battery that has the same vents so you can comnnect the vent hoses that direct the gases under the car. Also, you friend should keep an eve out on eBay for a factory service manual. They're priceless when it comes to the Allante.

    Re: 1989 Allante Battery Location

    I own an '88 Allante, the battery is just behind the passenger seat. power the right seat forward, look at the carpeted panel thats vertical behind the seat. Mine has a key lock access, not sure if an '89 is the same. Unlock the panel if necc. pull forward towards the seat back. Viola! theres the battery. If you are replacing it, I would recommend a Delco only that has the external vent hose attachment provision. hope this helps, Bill.

    all unmodified Allantés have the battery behind the passenger seat .. to pull the panel, use your trunk key to unlock and then simply pulll the panel forward .. not sideways .. be carefull to wash the area qucikly with baking soda, and if any got spilled on carpet, sprinkle baking soda and shampoo the area, ASAP, within 5 minutes .. highly recommend a towel to cover the carpet while pulling battery ...

    as a side issue, there is a similar panel behind the driver side, and there you will find the EMERGENCY / manual fuel door release ... something to know just in case the power switch fails .. btw, the BOSE speakers are inside these panels ...

    if you are not familiar with the other manual releases, top, trunk, top boot, compartment separator, park brake, etc ... drop me a line .. you should know where they all are .. another one that gets many in trouble is the parking brake manual release, if the auto-release fails, you are stuck unless u can find the manual release .. know them all .. and no , there is NO seat ejection ...

    as to the battery, GEL batteries are what many of us are switching to .. NO acid spill or leaks or fumes ... lasts only 3 - 4 years as compared to 6 yrs for the Delco liquid units, but it is worth not having acid issues back there .. the Delco have a LONGGGGGGGG history of leakage and damage not only to the tray, but to carpeting, upholstery, etc .. GEL - several brands and all work well ...
