Chrysler Colt/Vista 1990-1993 Repair Information
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Loosen the battery cable clamping nuts, negative (ground) cable first. Spread the battery cable terminals (or use a cable terminal puller). Remove the negative cable and then the positive cable.
Remove the battery holddown frame nuts and the frame.
Put on work gloves or use a battery carrier and lift the battery from the engine compartment. Be careful not to tip the battery and spill acid on yourself or the car during removal. Automotive batteries contain a sulfuric acid electrolyte which is harmful to skin, clothing and paint finishes.
To install the battery: carefully fit the battery into the engine compartment holder. Install the holddown frame and tighten the retaining nuts.
Install the positive cable first, then the negative cable. Lightly coat the battery cables with petroleum jelly.
