Take it to Advance Auto or equivalent and let them do it, you'll prolly get the battery there anyways.

Take the airbox out. There are 2 pegs underneath the airbox that fit into 2 grommets. Take the top part covering the air filter off then grab the airbox sides and wiggle it a little while pulling up. Should come right out. Now that works unless the airbox of a '03 turbo is totally different than an '02 but I bet they are the same.
