Question about 2006 Porsche Boxster
First look for the radio validation code. Just in case.
Use a battery maintainer or 12 volt battery (or even a 9-volt) connected through the lighter socket or onto the special posts within the fuse panel (see instructions above the fuse panel cover) to maintain voltage when you remove the old battery. Maintaining power allows the computer to hold the memory for things like your radio station presets, electric window stops, on-board computer settings, ECU data, the radio security code for early Boxster years, etc. It is more a matter of saving time by not having to reset everything. Disconnect the car from power for more than 30 seconds and you lose these memories and you have to reset the options, reset the radio code, the car has to spend an hour learning its engine settings, and the dealer may have to be visited to reset some options.
Remove the cover from the battery.
Remove the cable clamps from the battery posts.
Climb into the trunk.
Disconnect the vent tube.
Lift the 40 pound battery out.
Clean the cable clamps so they make good contact.
Look at the battery tray and see if it needs cleaning/painting.
Lift the new battery into the trunk and climb in again.
Install the battery on top of the battery tray.
Secure the new battery.
Connect the vent tube.
Put the cover back on.
Remove the battery maintainer or battery you used to retain the radio codes.
Start it up. You may have to get a temporary handle if there is not one already on your battery to help lift it out. These can be found at most automotive stores. They go across the terminals to lift the battery out.
