3 Lift out the battery. Be careful - itТs heavy.

4 While the battery is out, inspect the tray for corrosion (see Chapter 1).

5 If you are renewing the battery, make sure that you get one thatТs identical, with the same dimensions, amperage rating, cold cranking rating, etc. Dispose of the old battery in a responsible fashion. Most local authorities have facilities for the collection and disposal of such items - batteries contain sulphuric acid and lead, and should not be simply thrown out with the household rubbish!

6 Refitting is the reverse of the removal procedure.
