Model Number 75/86DT
I doubt anyone needs this, but for those people who are afraid to screw up. Please do feel free to add more and correct me if I am wrong. Also I wanted to show off my clean engine bay.
Brand spanking new battery from Costco ($140+tax CAD). Walmart sells it for $180+tax.
First of all, remove both the trays from the top of the battery. Check to see if you have the correct battery.
Old engine bay battery, still strapped on.
Put a cloth over the negative terminal before starting any work! Put on rubber gloves. Lift the positive battery terminal and then untighten the bolt that clamps the wires to the positive terminal. (10mm socket) Then remove, put the cloth on the +terminal, then untighten the negative and remove.
Next, use the 10mm socket to untighten the clamp holding the power, you should be able to just take it out afterwards.
Take the whole battery out (including bottom tray), so what you see is a white surface (if you own a PWP). COVER BOTH TERMINALS WITH CLOTH or something that doesn't transfer electricity.
The top piece of the battery splits into two pieces, take the larger piece and put it on the bottom of the battery to make it taller (it clamps in). Then place the battery on the battery bay. Put the holder on and tighten both of the pieces until you cannot move the battery! (My socket set was very shallow, deep socket is recommended) This is also where the extra height of the tray on the battery helps. The battery should fit relative flush against the battery bay and the clamp edges should just about hold the battery in place, once you tighten the screws on the battery holder, it becomes a tight fit.
Make 100% sure.
Lube up the positive and negative terminal with grease --- AGAIN LUBE THEM UP INDIVIDUALLY and place a cloth on the terminal not being used.
Once you have it clamped down, remove the (-)terminal plastic knob and put the (-)wire clamp on the (-)terminal. Then use the 10mm socket to tighten the (-)wire clamp on the (-)terminal. Remove the RED (+)terminal rubber knob and put it on the old battery. Then place the (+)wire clamp on the (+)terminal and tighten it with the 10mm socket.
This was a very easy installation. But it could potentially be very dangerous, always be careful, always cover the negative terminal or positive terminal or both when working with the battery. Always wear gloves that do not transfer electricity. Always ALWAYS check twice. After driving for a bit, remember to check if the battery still sits flush.
Note: Car started beautifully, no struggles.
Thanks chuson for the advice/help!
EDIT: I just realized I don't have any photos of the completed battery bay. I will take a picture after work today and post it up by tonight.
You should never connect the two battery terminals directly.
Don't Leave any metal objects on the battery as the two terminals might be connected, making a circuit.
It is illegal to throw a used battery in the garbage. You must return it to a store (often for a refund of the "Core" charge) or to a recycling center.
Do not spray the lithium grease on any other parts of the engine block other than the positive and negative terminals.
Do not allow any automotive battery to turn on its side or upside down.
If you wear any rings, remove them or cover them with electrical tape or latex gloves before working on electrical systems. Even a depleted battery can deliver enough current to melt a gold ring, which would result in serious injury.
Do not allow the used battery to come into contact with your clothes. If you do, two or three wash cycles later, holes will appear in clothes from where the acid has eaten through them. To be on the safe side, wear a disposable apron or old clothes you intend to discard soon.
Always wear eye protection and gloves.
