REPLACING THE VEHICLE BATTERY

WARNING

Only install a battery of the same type and rating. Installing an incorrect battery may cause a fire, leading to serious injury or death. If in doubt when installing 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. Failure to do so may cause an electric shock, resulting in serious injury or death.

WARNING

Switch the ignition off before disconnecting the battery terminals. Failure to do so may cause an electric shock, resulting in serious injury or death.

WARNING

Always disconnect the negative terminal first and reconnect last. Failure to do so may cause an electric shock, resulting in serious injury or death.

CAUTION

Battery disconnection, removal, and replacement should be carried out only by qualified personnel. Failure to do so may result in damage to the vehicle. Consult a retailer/authorised repairer.

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

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