简介

If your truck doesn’t start up with the same gusto as before and you’re constantly having to give it a jump, it might be time to replace the battery. Luckily, changing out the battery is one of the easiest maintenance tasks you can perform on your Silverado.

  5. Locate the battery hold down, which is a small block held down on the right side of the battery compartment. Use at least a 6" socket wrench extension to reach the 13mm bolt and loosen it up. Once it's completely loosened, reach down and pull out the bolt and the battery hold down block.

    • Before you remove any cables, ALWAYS remember to remove the black negative cable first, which will prevent shorting the battery to ground and possibly causing a fire.

  7. Loosen the 10mm bolt on the black negative terminal just enough so that you can lift it up and remove the cable. Push the cable back and out of the way. A simple trick is to rest it on one of the engine bay braces to keep it from springing back. Push the cable back and out of the way.

  9. The battery may have carrying handles that you can flip up if they're not already. Grab onto the handles with both hands and slowly lift the battery out of the battery compartment. Batteries are very heavy (around 40 lbs.), so make sure you're able to safely lift the weight.
