REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



  1. Remove the positive and negative cables from their terminals on the top of the battery. If the cables remain stuck to the terminals after loosening the cable clamps, use a puller to free them. Do not try to pry the cables off the terminals; damage to the battery case and/or the terminals may result.
