    Battery Removal 07 GT

    My 07 GT is is need of it's 1st battery change. I've been looking in the forums and on the Repair Manual CD, but can't seem to find anything on the removal procedure.
    It looks straightforward enough ... take the cover off and remove the 2 screws holding the battery in place, then disconnect the terminal leads.
    Anything I should be aware of and should one lead be disconnected 1st and connected 1st?
    I always worked on my 85 RT, but I feel nervous with the new GT.
    Could use some advice, or and point in the right direction. Thanks

    Ground off first and back on last. That way when your wrench touches ground when you are messing with the positive post, you won't draw a million amps.

    Battery Removal

    Thanks for the advice. I guess I was lucky with the 85 RT, I put 2 batteries in in 24 years of service and well over 100,000 miles!
    Looked again at the GT and it will a snap.
    Cheers
