Swapping 12v battery


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a video of accessing and swapping the battery?  I have a genuine Toyota battery coming but can pull back the centre console, but how do I take the rest apart?

Hello Liz,

 

Are we talking leisure battery here ?

 

Or do you have a Hybrid ?

 

 

Presumably you have ordered the same capacity, Amp per Hour (Ah); that the battery is the same physical size; and that the terminals are in the correct configuration.

 

The main battery will be under the bonnet in the engine bay.

If you are changing your Hybrid, there are some threads on here.

 

But I expect a member will be able to advise when they read your topic.

 

If you are changing your main battery is is quite easy, but they are heavy.

Let us know and we can tell you the correct order for disconnection and reconnection

 

Whichever battery you are changing; make sure you have all the correct spanners before you start !

Hi, 

I have atatched a couple of photos from the internet showing where the battery is located for a hybrid- you have to remove the rear curved shape cover which is accessed from behind the front seats- that is from the side door- it is very awkward and you have to push the centre seats well back. The cover clips off so use a special trim removing tool if you have one but it may come off by pulling on the "side bumps" on the cover- it's also a devil to get back on. You have to remove the vertical bar first and wiggle the battery out a bit to get to the terminal nuts- the battery is a very snug fit so make sure you have the right battery and must be a stop start type- an ordinary battery will likely fail after a while which is what happened to me- I did put a post on  a while ago which gave the battery I had to get (for a 2005 E4). Don't forget to reset the door window switches - see Youtube - good luck
