Installing battery

Hi Everyone,

Putting a new battery looks more complicated then the usual removing of 2 terminals

There is a fuse box sitting on top of the battery, it looks like this needs to be removed to replace a duff battery.

Looking forward to advise about this.


I own a 1999, Alfa Romeo 156, 2.4 JTD

might help to remove the cable that exits toward the inner wing as well, to give a bit more freedom to move the fusebox out of the way. I didn't bother to remove the fusebox, just that cable then unbolted the clamp and it swung just far enough to lift the battery out on the v6.

Just make sure that you get both twin rings of the positive terminal below the small black fuse box on the terminal correctly before nipping it up or you may have intermittent loss of current
