How do I change the battery on a 2002 hyundai Accent

I was able to get the clamps off the positive and negative areas, but there is a bolt on the bottom front side of the battery. This bolt makes it impossible to take the battery out and there is not enough room to use a wrench.

You will need to use a deep well socket and two extensions and a ratchet. Its a little tricky but it can be done. Thanks for Using FixYa!

Hold down clamps will not remove to replace battery, 2002 malibu


First off , the battery cover should be removed and the "hold down" clamp is at the base of the battery and it would be shaped as a large triangle with a bolt through it.
Be sure and remove the negative battery terminal first and then the positive. Installation is the opposite , positive first and then the negative.
The bolt should be loosened enough so that the "hold down" clamp comes right out.
Your saying you can't get the "hold down" clamp removed. Do you mean the bolt will not turn or it turns but not enough to remove the clamp? More information would help.

On the starter For a Hyundai accent which terminal should I connect the red battery cable


Good question, because connecting it the wrong way can damage the starter, the battery, or both! The red cable connector clamps to the positive terminal, and the black cable clamps to the negative terminal. On a new battery, it is often easy to tell which is positive by their markings (+) = positive and (-) is negative. In reality, the markings may be difficult to see. The red or positive post is larger in diameter. The black or negative post is a ground so you can follow it from the post to somewhere solid on the metal frame of the car.

Note the cross on the top of the battery post.

According to In.answers.yahoo.com :

"...the battery case will have a + near the positive or a - near the negative terminal. If these don't exist then the positive post will have a larger diameter post than the ground post, this is if the battery is a top post.



If it's a side terminal battery which GM cars used for a while it should be marked on the top of the battery or on the front with its respective sign. Otherwise you can look at the cable that's connected to it which are usually color coded. Red is positive and black is negative."

How do I change the negative battery cable in a 2002 sante fe


They sell a variety of replacement clamps or terminals, unbolt it,cut it off, expose a 1/2" or so wire and connect it to the replacement terminal, and install back to battery. Like 5 bucks and a couple tools.

Check the ground wire, a black connected to the ( - ) pole, it might have been disconnected. Clean the battery clamp and battery terminals from rust and oxidation, tighten up the TERMINAL. Remember ( + )positive pole is RED and negative ( - ) pole is black, sometimes no plastic cover!
Taaah!
