- Buick Ownership
I've never done it. Car ran fine yesterday, won't start today. All the lights are dim, etc. Don't recall leaving the door open so perhaps it just went dead. Been changed twice but always at the garage. It's a vented battery (under the rear seat) and so there is a tube running across it that connects to a small slot on both sides. The battery is a 79-R AC Delco 840 CCA 140RC. Last replaced in April 2012. Two questions: 1) worth trying to charge? 2) any precautions before trying to remove it? Looks like there are some pretty substantial cables behind it possibly not allowing a whole lot of room, but guess once the terminals are disconnected some of that stuff will push back out of the way. Thanks for any advice....
