how do i change the battery in a Peugeot 308

If you buy a new battery, most stores will help you replace it. you will need a ratchet set to remove the positive and negative ends of the terminal. you should remove the positive end first. and for the new one, add the negative end first.

replace battery saturn sl1 1998

Disconnect the negative and positive battery cables from the terminals on the battery. Take that battery out. Now then buy another battery for you make and model. Put the positive and negative battery cables on the battery terminals of the new battery. MAKING SURE, you have them on the RIGHT CABLES ON THE RIGHT TERMINALS. POSITIVE --- (RED) as the NEGATIVE CABLE is ----(BLACK). If you get them mixed up and try to start the car or something. You will blow a ton of fuses. and no telling what else! Its not hard as long as you can read the (-) << NEGATIVE (BLACK) WIRE and (+) << POSITIVE --(RED) WIRE on the battery.

Need to know how wires go back on starter for 2001 ford explorer sport

the large stud:three eights copper: is the one that the battery cable goes on. the small post 'This ford has just the one' is where the signal wire goes. If you have other smaller gauge wires that have a large ring terminal they go on the lartge lug too. Hooking up your battery. positive cable on positive terminal first. tighten it up. place negative cable on negative terminal. if you get large amounts of sparks check your cabling for chafeing or dead shorts. you may get a small spark if you have a hood light on or assesory. good luck

how do i go about install a battery in a BMW 2003 330xi step by step

theres two terminals on top of your battery.. usually they are a 10mm. take eaach terminal off. then there should be a battery hold down. it can be on top of the battery, on the side, you just have to find whats holding the battery in the tray and take that off. then place the new battery in the car. put the battery hold down back on. and then re attach the two terminals... one is + and one is - make sure you dont mix them up when putting the new battery in...

Weak battery; can we replace with any battery ourselves?

Yes but I'd be more interested in why the battery is "weak" after only 3 years. Do yourself a favor, go to an independant repair shop or auto parts dealer, most will check your charging system free of charge (you can call first to verify). If the charging system checks out (they will usually do a battery check too). and the battery checks out, you don't need a battery.
Finally, if you do decide to buy a new battery, any auto parts dealer or some tire dealers will have a battery to fit your Rav 4. Hope this lengthy reply (LOL) answers your question. It's a good thing to do your homework like you've just done so pat yourself on the back for me! Best of luck.
