You just need to disconnect the negative side of the battery, which should be labeled. You're gonna need a socket wrench in order to do it. And possibly some pliers with a rubber handle in order to get the cables out of the way easily without shocking yourself; because the battery does still produce power even after you take it off, this just stops the power from going to anything in the car. I just recently had to do this in order to install subs and an amp in my 97 passat. Hope this helps.
