Removal & Instalation
Batteries produce explosive gases. Batteries contain corrosive acids. Batteries supply levels of electrical current high enough to cause burns. In order to reduce the risk of personal injury while working near a battery, observe the following. Always shield your eyes. Avoid leaning over the battery whenever possible. Do not expose the battery to open flames or sparks. Do not allow battery acid to come in contact with your eyes or skin. Flush any contacted area with clean water immediately. Get medical help.
Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
