Disconnect the negative and positive battery cables from the terminals on the battery. Take that battery out. Now then buy another battery for you make and model. Put the positive and negative battery cables on the battery terminals of the new battery. MAKING SURE, you have them on the RIGHT CABLES ON THE RIGHT TERMINALS. POSITIVE --- (RED) as the NEGATIVE CABLE is ----(BLACK). If you get them mixed up and try to start the car or something. You will blow a ton of fuses. and no telling what else! Its not hard as long as you can read the (-) << NEGATIVE (BLACK) WIRE and (+) << POSITIVE --(RED) WIRE on the battery.

How to remove the battery

Always remove the negative battery cable first. That will avoid the possibility of causing a spark trying to remove the positive first.
So you take a wrench and remove the negative post. If it is a sidepost battery, use an 8 mm wrench to remove the center bolt on the cable. If a top post battery, use the appropriate wrench to remove the negative cable terminal.
Now you can safely loosen and remove the positive battery connection.
Battery is now free to remove, but wait, there is a holding fixture on most batteries so it won't move around or tip over. Either a top bracket that hold battery stable, or there is a small little block at bottom of battery, like a wedge, to hold it secure. This block or wedge is retained by a small bolt, usually 1/2 inch size hex on the bolt (or 13 mm size, which is very close to 1/2 inch). remove this holding block or wedge and battery should come4 out. On some GM models there is a brace which is over the battery, and this brace must be removed for battery removal. Take one end of brace loose and swing it out of the way.

    How do I remove the battery from a 2006 Dodge Durango?

    One side of that battery will have a single 13 mm bolt that you can loosen and or remove entirely to allow you to remove that battery. Screws located down near the bottom of the battery.
    The fender is on the left and then the battery and then the wedge is on the battery side which faces the engine. You need to remove it with a socket and long extension.

    Remove the negative battery and place it out of the way then remove the positive cable and move it as well.Remove the heat guard or shield which surrounds the battery if installed.Remove the battery hold down wedge by unscrewing the bolt.Lift out the battery.Reverse for installation.--------------- Thank you.
