I know it's a dumb question, but how do I remove the battery. It went bad and won't take a charge. What's with the clips, too!

The clips look like a pretty simple no-tool alternative fastening method. Be sure to pay attention to the following section of the owners manual:

After a power loss, such as disconnecting the battery or
removing the maxi fuses in the power distribution
fuse block, the following steps must be performed to
calibrate the electronic throttle control. If this is not done,
the engine will not run properly.
1. Turn the ignition to ON/RUN. Do not start the
engine.
2. Leave the ignition in ON/RUN for at least three
minutes so that the electronic throttle control will
cycle and re-learn its home position.
3. Turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF.
4. Start and run the engine for at least 30 seconds.

I'm assuming you are under warranty. Why not let your dealer take care of it. Call On*. Worked for me!

Just called the dealer and they gave me an 800 number to call for Roadside assistance. Told me they can replace the battery right on the spot since it's still under warranty. Glad I ask; thanks!

After they replace the battery, make sure either they or yourself perform the steps to calibrate the electronic throttle control (quoted in previous post).
