Car Maintenance and Repair Tips : How to Remove a Car Battery to Replace It


Hi! I’m William Myers with Subaru for Expert
Village. Today we’re going to change out
a battery but remember one thing the negative
battery cable always comes off first and the
negative cable always go on last when you
change a battery. This is the negative cable
right here, it’ll always have a negative
sign on the battery our positive plus sign
for the positive side. First you’re going
to loosen the negative cable by loosening
this 10mm nut here, you put your 10mm wrench
on and just counter clockwise loosen the nut,
undo it from its clip not all batteries will
have this clip, put the cable to side, then
you lift up the plastic cover on the positive
and you loosen the same 10mm nut on the positive
side,
remove the positive post positive battery
terming that is and then you’ll have two
10mm nuts here on the bounty bracket. First
you remove your little plastic clip by unscrewing
it counter clockwise and pull up, loosen up
your 10mm holding bolts their also known as
j-bolts because they have a hook at the end
and once their loosen just back them off and
you can push down and undo them because there’s
a j-hook. So once you get your bracket out
the way just like so
just grab your battery, lift it out, set it
on the ground and you’re ready to install
a new battery, this is a j-hook it looks like
a j the j-hook live in a hole right here and
it goes just like so and you have one on the
other side right across from it and that’s
what that j-hooks going to ride in to keep
that battery clamp held down so the battery
don’t slide around.
