Video for changing a side post battery . \nI found a video that walks you through changing a side-post battery.\n. \nhttp://www.associatedcontent.com/video/3004/under_the_…hood_side_post_battery_change.html\n. \nMy only concern is that the lady in the video says to remove the positive connector first when every other battery changing tutorial has said to remove the negative first. Your call.
It is behind the drivers seat under a small door on the back deck. It is probably side post.
What's the Question?
Buy a new battery to start off with then you will have to either change the battery cables to sidepost type mounts or buy sidepost type mounts and install them on your old cab…les.
All you need to do is replace the battery and while you're at it replace the battery wires. If you want a molded (highly recommended) terminal you'll need to look through the …selection at an auto parts house to find one with the right length and configuration (1 or two wires). It's a relatively simple job provided that you have everything before you start... running around for the little pieces can drive you nuts.
How do you take a top post battery cable an turn it into a side post battery an the top post battery also have side post?
You can buy an adapter to convert a side post to top post or visa versa.
It should have top posts.
It is as simple as changing the battery cables.
You can buy and adaptor to connect the top post cables to a side post battery. Or you can simply replace the side post cables with top post cables.
