Remove the battery cover and disconnect the air cleaner that is beside it by popping it off.

Take off the cable ends from the battery terminals with a battery terminal puller. Take off the negative terminal first.

Slide the battery toward the wheel well and remove it from underneath the wheel well.

Use a wire brush to clean the surface that holds the battery. Clean the insides of the connector cables with a pointed wire brush. Keep your gloves on at all times to avoid getting acid on your hands.

Rinse off the cables and the battery tray or wipe them off with a damp cloth, and let them dry out.

Insert the new battery on the shelf, bringing it up through the wheel well. Pop the air cleaner back into place.

Place the correct cable on each terminal and tighten securely with pliers or a socket wrench. Replace the battery holder and cover.

I hope this helps

Good luck.

My 2003 dodge intrepid 2.7 just clicks when I try to start it if I get a jump I can drive for a while turn the car on and off a few times then it clicks again all dash lights seem to work any ideas?

Pull and clean the battery cables and post to a shine. Get the electricity to flow again. Make sure yourn battery is at 12vdc when starting and goes to 13.5 vdc when running. Usde a digital meter on battery when checking this. No other way.

The battery in an Intrepid is hard to get to. You cannot replace it from the top.

Step 1: Turn steering wheel all of the way to the right.

Step 2: Go to the passenger side front tire.

Step 3: There are 6-8 small bolts holding in a piece of plastic molding. Remove them and take the piece of molding out. (this is located in front of the tire in the wheel well under the car.

Step 4: Open the hood of your car.

Step 5: Remove the two bolts holding your air cleaner to the car.

Step 6: Remove air cleaner and place it out of the way.

Step 7: Loosen the terminal connectors holding the wires to the battery.

Step 8: Remove the battery from the hold in the wheel well.

Step 9: Put everything back together following these steps in reverse.

Battery terminals, when car is off, should read 12V+-.2V. When the car is running, terminals should read 13V-14V=-.2V
