Assuming it's still the factory set up.

Remove the two 10mm bolts that hold the cables on and remove the battery cables (negative/black cable first).

at the base of the battery tray there is a hold down retainer. the retainer is like a half moon piece with a tab that hangs over the base of the battery to lock it in place.

looking at the car it will be on the front left side edge of the battery.
Lift the retainer out using a rotating motion towards the battery while pulling up on it. BE CAREFUL!!! it can take some force to remove and when it does your hand will hit the nearest bracket there.

to reinstall sit the battery into the back edge of the tray like sliding in a baking tray into a low oven. this will allow the battery housing to fit under the back lip of the battery tray.

Slide the battery all the way towards the outside of the fender (towards your right) and reattach the hold down by rotating downwards while pushing down.

reattach the battery cables and you're done. now hopefully you have the radio code... if not go by the dealer and they can get it for you (if you still have the factory radio).

As a side note, if the cables are badly corroded they can be cleaned with normal hot (almost boiling) water and a light brush. we use the hot water out of the coffee maker. when clean apply some battery protector (from any parts store) to keep the cables from oxidizing.

    if you go to a auto store, you don't need instructions. it's a little more complicated that pull the black rubber piece. you have no idea how many batteries/cables i've had to fix over the years due to people with that type of reasoning.

How do I replace the battery on my 2004 pt cruiser?


Steps to replace the battery

Air Cleaner Removal

1. Loosen the air intake hose clamp (with a flathead screwdriver), which holds the intake tube to the air box lid.

2. Once the hose clamp is loosened, pop open the two spring-loaded clamps on the left and front side of the air box. The clamps help secure the lid to the air box. On the back of the air box lid there are 4 plastic slots, which match up with 4 corresponding tabs on the air box. In order to unhinge the lid from the air box, slide the lid away from you about an inch and gently lift the lid up. Ensure that the lid is free from the air box hinge; then carefully disconnect the air intake hose from the lid at the hose clamp and remove the lid from the engine compartment.

3. Lift the air filter out of the air box. 4. Disconnect the PCV hose from the lower air box.

5. The lower air box is removed by just tugging straight up on it. It will pop out as it's held in place by two rubber pins that wedge into the indentations in the plastic air box.

Battery Removal

6. Disconnect the battery terminals - negative 1st, the positive. 7. Remove the anchor bolt at the base of the battery using a 1/2" socket. 8. Lift battery out (with a battery carrier strap). Save the thermal blanket wrap to slip on the new battery.

Cleanup and Installation

9. Clean the terminals by dipping in a cup filled with baking soda and warm water. Use a battery terminal cleaning tool, wire brush to remove the corrosion or a tiny screw driver to scrape with. Rinse with water and clean up the tray with a towel.

10. Install the thermal blanket on new battery. Note the position of the notches on the blanket when replacing it. Lift into car and slide the battery as much as possible towards fender. Reinstall retaining bolt.

11. Install felt washers ($1) to prevent corrosion on the terminals

12. Reinstall terminals (positive 1st, then negative). Apply some grease or Vaseline to the tops of the terminals.

13. Reinstall air cleaner box. Carefully line it up and push down Make sure to seat it completely when you reinstall it.

14. Reinstall filter; cover. Make sure clips are on tight.
