Re: 147 battery - Should / can I change it myself?
It is very easy. Disconnect negative pole first (the one close to the front of the car). Undo the cover on the distributor box that sits on the “+” pole. There are two small screws holding the box to the battery, unscrew them. Than loosen the “+” pole and take the cable off the battery. The distributor box is attached to the cable as well; you will remove both at the same time. Release the bolt holding the strap around the battery. You will need an extension for your key to get to it. Remove the strap. You can take the battery out now. Install new one in reverse order.
Important thing is that the negative pole is the first thing to disconnect and the last thing to connect. The rest is simple.
