On my 02 you need a #2 phillips screw driver for the hold down bolts and a metric hex bit (allen wrench) for the battery terminals. I do not remember the size of hex though. Guess would be 4 or 5mm.

Oh and nimble fingers to realign the mounting bolts


P.S. Don't drop one of the terminal screws, they are a PITA to find..
