Smile 04 Scenic 1.9DCi - how do you replace the battery?


I have had battery problems in the above car before and now it is time to change it. I have been supplied with a new battery (from a friend in parts department at a dealership - all staff discounts applied!!!) but I am unsure of the correct method of disconnecting the old one and installing a new one - I have never done this before!!!

Can anyone please advise what should be done in what order to disconnect the old battery and install the new one? An even sillier question...is it likely the new battery is supplied fully charged and if not, how should I go about charging it before installing it?

Hope to do this at the weekend so look forward to anny replies and advice.

Go to a garage and get your new battery load tested before fitting it. The new battery should come fully charged if coming from a reputable shop. Return it if it fails the load test.

It is recommended to turn on parking lights when disconnecting old battery and leave them on whilst connecting the new battery. Apparantly the chance of causing damage to electronic components due to voltage spikes is somewhat reduced this way.
Avoid spilling any acid!
