A few jobs on the Volvo C30 require removal of the battery box, such as replacing the master cylinder or the transmission mount. Removing the box is easy and should take no longer than 15 minutes.

It is also a good idea to clean the battery box if there is a buildup of battery acid and/or corrosion. You'll want to use a solution of water and baking soda to neutralize the battery acid and wear gloves. Battery acid is caustic and can burn exposed skin after repeated exposure.

Removing the battery box requires disconnecting and removing the battery first.
