Something to note before unfastening hardware: be sure to keep loose nuts and bolts handy as you’re going to need them to put your new battery in.

Now, onto the dirty work.

  1. Disconnect the negative (-) terminal
  2. Disconnect the positive (+) terminal
  3. Disconnect the battery hold down

At this point, you should be able to move the battery. Before pulling the battery out, note the position of the positive and negative terminals relative to your vehicle. You must ensure the new battery’s terminals match the appropriate cables to avoid causing costly damage and potential injury.
