First you have to romove the black bar, the angled brace tube over the battery. It unbolts easily and then the battery pops out. There is to bolts and each end.
Then you remove the two battery terminals and the hold down bolt that is at the back of the battery at the bottom. It is a 13mm bolt i believe, and once out to install is just in reverse. Remember to disconnect the negative side first on the battery and reconnect the negative side of the battery last.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.
