REPLACING THE VEHICLE BATTERY

WARNING

Battery disconnection, removal, and replacement should be carried out only by qualified personnel. Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death. Consult a retailer/authorized repairer.

WARNING

Only fit a battery of the same type and rating. Fitting an incorrect battery may result in a fire and injury, or damage to the electrical system. If in doubt when fitting a battery, seek qualified assistance.

WARNING

When refitting the battery make sure that no metal objects, or vehicle components, come into contact with the battery terminals. Metal objects can cause sparks or short circuits, potentially resulting in an explosion.

WARNING

Switch the ignition off before disconnecting the battery terminals. Failure to do so may lead to an electrical shock or an explosion, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

WARNING

Always disconnect the negative terminal first and reconnect last. Failure to do so may cause a pressure build-up in the battery, potentially resulting in an explosion. An explosion may cause serious injury or death.

If the vehicle's battery should require replacing, the battery must be removed from the vehicle. Consult a retailer/authorized repairer.

Used batteries must be disposed of correctly as they contain a number of harmful substances. Seek advice on disposal from a retailer/authorized repairer or the local authority.
