The Nissan Versa battery mounts near the rear of the engine compartment on the driver side. You need to replace the battery right away if it loses its charge. Buy a replacement battery at a Nissan dealer or auto parts store. Save the time and money spent at a service center by changing the battery yourself. Many auto parts stores and dealerships will accept old batteries for recycling.
Things You'll Need
- Wrench set
- New battery
Park your Versa on level ground and remove the key from the ignition. Open and secure the hood of the Versa.
Loosen the battery terminal connection on the negative battery post with a wrench. Remove the cable. Follow the same procedure to remove the positive battery cable.
Lift the retaining strap off the top of the battery. Pull the battery's bottom tab to lift the strap up, then move the strap out of the way. Remove the battery.
Insert the new battery into the compartment. Replace the retaining strap and snap it into place. Connect the positive battery cable. Tighten it with a wrench. Attach the negative cable. Tighten the connection with the wrench. Close the hood.
Tips & Warnings
- Always disconnect the negative cable before removing the old battery.
- When finished installing the new battery, connect the positive cable first to avoid serious injury or damage to the electrical system.
