Replacing Toyota Car Battery--QUICK AND EASY!!!

Replacing Toyota Car Battery--QUICK AND EASY!!! | Today we're going to be replacing a battery on a 2000 Toyota Camry. Now this is a fairly simple procedure, you just need a couple of really simple tools to get the job done, and I have them right here. Habib the Mechanic has a 10mm Socket Wrench, and I also have a big pair of pliers. The reason you're going to need that: If you're lucky enough to have a deep-wall socket, which I do not have, you'll need that for the bolt down here. Right over here on the J-hook. Because as you can tell, that's not going to fit down far enough, but you can use the pliers on that.

We're going to get to that in a second. First thing you have to do is disconnect the battery cables, so that's where you'll use the 10mm socket. All you do is just stick it on there and loosen it right up. You want to take off the negative cable, negative battery cable because that will disconnect the rest of the metal from the car and prevent any other problems. So the negative is disconnected and mostly out of the way, put it up there, that's fine. And now, we're safe, the only thing you do not want to do is drop the wrench on the battery terminals. Just put the socket on the other one and loosen that up. That might be enough, and that will do. There we are, we'll just kick that out of the way over here and that's that. Now you see I do have a little corrosion here but I'm replacing the battery so it doesn't make a difference. Ok now we've got a bolt right here on the bracket, this is also 10mm so just put your wrench on there and we're just going to back this one all the way out.

And that's that. Ok now we're going to take this bolt off, now again, if you do have a deep-wall socket you can go right on there and take this right off, but I don't have the luxury of that, so I'm going to use a big pair of pliers here, and I'm just going to keep on spinning this all the way off. You'll see that the bracket is getting loose. I'll see if that's enough, definitely will do. Ok this is what we just took out, this is called the J-hook or J-bolt or J-something, it looks like a letter "J" and what that does is it holds down the back part of the battery to the battery tray, and clamps everything down nice and tight. Now you see that once we've got this out, we can swing this out of the way over here.

Now we can take the battery out, and be careful because it is very heavy. There's lead in it, that's why it's so heavy. Pull it right out, and put that down here. Now we're off to the auto parts store to get a new battery. Ok so you see we have a new battery now, it's black on top instead of yellow. Next thing you want to do is clean up the contacts here, the battery clamps, and make sure they don't have corrosion in them. So I have this brush here which I reviewed in another video, I'll put the link in the description for that. I'm just going to go in here and wire brush this up real nice, and then we're going to do the same with the other side. I just took the battery out for a second to show you how to install the J-hook, and what you're going to see is down in here, this piece right here has a hole in the side of it there.

You hook the J-hook in there like that and then that clamps down on the top part of the battery. Ok, so now we have the J-hook installed, you just hook it in at the bottom and put it right through the hole in the top here. Just make that finger-tight for this minute, because we have to shimmy the bracket over right here and put its 10mm bolt in, you can just start that by hand. Just like that, and we'll tighten down that bolt. Ok, that's fine. Now we can tighten down this here. Again, if you have a deep socket, that will definitely be your best friend, but I'm just going to fight with this until I get it tight. Ok, we're about all set now to hook up the battery clamps back onto the battery here. Now when you do this, you want to put the positive on first, negative last. POSITIVE FIRST, NEGATIVE LAST. You should put some sort of grease or something on these contacts here to help prevent corrosion and stuff, so I have some grease here, I'm just going to smear that on here.

Give it a nice coating like that. And that should be fine. Ok we're all set now, so we're going to put this clamp on. Just kind of move it into position, slam it on down, and now we're just going to tighten up the bolt on that. Now we're getting tight. Ok, now we're going to put the negative cable back on. Now, there's a couple things that you need to know: Number 1, there may be a small spark that's drawn when you do this. Number 2, and mostly important is: If you have a remote start system in your vehicle, you'll want somebody else standing on the brake pedal to prevent the engine from starting. Because typically when those get re-energized, for some reason, they go and try to start the engine right away. If you don't have a good enough connection here, then all kinds of havok can wreak loose. Let's just go ahead and connect that, and now we're going to tighten that down, just try it by hand for a little bit. It's starting to get tight now, good.

Ok new battery's in, here's the moment of truth, if I have the right key. Beautiful! No problem at all! Anyway, I hope that helped you out. If it did, make sure you hit like, make sure you hit subscribe, and take care, we'll see you next time! Bye-bye!.
