Q: Battery replacement

asked by on

What is the easiest way to replace the battery

My car has 177000 miles.

Your battery is generally held in by a strap or a set of bolts and connected to two cables (positive and negative). Depending on your ability and access to tools, this generally requires very little time and a couple of wrenches. If this is not something you are comfortable with, an expert from YourMechanic can easily come to your location and replace your battery for you at any time.
