     Begin the repair by opening the hood of your car. Go to the battery and remove its negative terminal cable, in the first place. We marked it in blue in the next picture, but you should look out for the “minus” symbol on your battery, just to double check. In the next step, remove the positive cable. It is usually coloured in red (shown accordingly, in the next image) and it is marked with a “plus” symbol.

     You can replace the battery at this point, but only after you make sure the new one is similar. We recommend you to verify the compatibility of the battery before buying it. To make the replacement properly, just reverse the process. Tighten the bolt that holds the battery in place, connect the positive cable first and then the negative one and you are done. It is better to clean the inside of the cable terminals before, to be sure the connection is good. You can use a piece of sandpaper or another abrasive tool for that.
