Look at your old battery and make note of the brackets installation and the terminal (positive and negative ) locations. Remove the positive cable, then the negative cable where they attach to the battery poles. POSITIVE cables are normally RED.....NEGATIVE cables are normally BLACK. Remove the battery hold down bracket making sure you do not place anything metal across the two battery poles. Install the new battery into the battery tray, attach the hold down brackets, the attach the negative cable end then the positive end. BE VERY CAREFUL and DO NOT GET BATTERY ACID on you or SHORT ACROSS the battery poles with any metalic object. If you have not done this before and are buying a new battery from an auto center....they will...most times.....install the battery for you free of charge
The first thing to do is to remove the negative cable before the positive cable to prevent any shock and sparks. Battery cables have a nut and bolt keeping the lead made connector snug to the terminal of the battery. After loosening the nut you will need a pair of channel lock pliers to wiggle the battery cables end attached to the battery This will spread the connector open some to remove
I am confused by your description of the process you are using to remove a battery. If you can not charge the battery in place then there should only be three bolts to undue to remove it. There should be a rubber wedge near the bottom of the battery with a bolt going through the center that holds the battery down. This bolt needs to be removed and the block taken out to be able to lift the battey out. To remove the cables start with the negative one so that if you touch a metal part of the vehicle with the wrench it will not short to ground (put negative back on last for same reason) then positive side. It should be a cable side mount type battery with small bolt heads that actually undue a larger (approx 3/8") bolt that goes into the side terminals of the battery. If you have any further questions please reply to my solution.
1. Loosen the four screws that hold down the top of the air filter box. 2. Loosen the clamp that attaches the air filter box to the intake hose. 3. Disconnect the air sensor connector from the top of the air filter box. Note: Secure the connector wire, it tends to drop down and more than once I have had to remove the air filter box to retrieve it. 4. Remove the top part of the air filter box. You may need to twist it to get it to release from the rubber air inlet Hose. 5. Remove the two bolts holding the bottom of the air filter box. 6. Remove the bottom part of the air filter box. 7. Disconnect the negative then the positive battery cables. 8. Remove the three bolts that hold the brace that goes over the Windshield washer tank. 9. Remove the brace. 10. Remove the Battery hold down clamp at the base of the battery. 11. Remove the two nuts that hold the fuse box to the fender well. 12. Remove the two fasteners from the front of the widshield washer tank. 13. Rotate the windshield washer tank away from the battery. You may need to move the tank and lift the fuse box to get the tank clear of the battery. 14 Remove the battery. To Install reverse the steps. Time: 5 to 10 Minutes
Automotive batteries are required to be bolted down to help prevent tip over into engine belts and pulleys. There is usually a bolt going through a rubber block that is located in the front of the battery. this has to be removed in order to remove the battery. Good luck.
There should be a bolt that goes through a rubber boot. The rubber boot grasps the lip on the bottom of the battery. If you can access this bolt and remove it, then you should be able to pull the battery straight out, provided the cables will allow you enough clearance to do so. Otherwise, you'll have to disconnect the cables before pulling it out. Hope this helps solve your problem. Have a great day!
you will need a 8 mm wrench or a 5/16 wrench to remove the side terminals on the battery. you must disconect the neg. first, then the pos.....when putting the new battery in , you must connect the pos. first, then the neg.
