Help! Where is the NEGATIVE post?

Feel silly, but I am trying to disconnect the battery and can NOT find the negative post on my 2008 2.4L

Battery is in the back of the HHR, right there with the spare tire. Negative post is on the battery. Marked with a minus (-) emblem.

Don't forget to put a towel folded over the latch so you can't accidentally close the lift gate!

I was going to say something totally bad.
But instead I will be nice.
Did you find the positive post?
Look to the right about 11 inches.

The only negative we need to hear about is the battery post.

Probably found the positive post, under the hood. Easy mistake to make if you aren't familiar with the HHR.
