The battery that you need is a U1, 12V 33amp, you will need two of them. If your insurance will not cover replacement via Hoveround, you can purchase the batteries on your own at Batteries Plus, Insterstate Battery or any other battery warehouse for $75-120 each.
Remove the black webbing strap over the battery covers by squeezing the plastic pinch clip. Remove the cover carefully so that you do not yank any of the leads. Using a wrench loosen the bolts that attach the leads to the posts, be careful if there is any corrosion that may irritate your skin. Check the fuses to make sure they are still good; if not they are regular automotive fuses that are inexpensive and can be found at any auto parts store. Remove the plastic caps or any packaging from the new battery posts and seat the batteries on the tray, connect the leads to the posts as indicated and tighten with a wrench. Turn the power chair on to make sure the connections are good and that you get power. Replace the covers, and tighten the straps.
You may want to use the power chair until the battery is used up before you charge it fully for 8-12 hours; this will ensure that the battery gets FULLY cycled and any buildup inside the battery from it sitting on the shelf in the store is burned out. Make sure that you charge the power chair after a full day's use for 8-12 hours (overnight), not after every trip as overcharging can cause damage. If the power chair in not going to be used for a while, continue to charge the batteries at least one day a week to keep the batteries fluid.
Return your used batteries to the battery store or auto parts store for proper disposal. Good luck!

Is changing the battery hard?

No, it is quite easy - remove battery cover by appyling pressure on the covers latches. you will need a ratchet and extension to loosen the battery grip at the bottom of the battery tray, I believe its a 14 mm socket.

How do i change my car battery without losing my radio.

You need to keep a supply to it. You can buy various devices that plug into your cigar lighter. The quite simply have one of these square 9 volt radio type batteries in them. This keeps power on while changing battery. You could easily make something up with one of these batteries and a couple of leads going to the terminals after loosening the bolts. Be careful though and make sure your wires are secure so the do not come off while wrestling with the battery.
