How do I change the battery cables? Is it a difficult process? How long will it take?

No, its fairly easy, and very smart. Two ways, you can call a dealer for the exact part(I recommend this), or just measure the length you need and get a couple cables and terminals. Be careful to use cables of the same gauge(thickness), or thicker, not thinner, ok? You'll need a wrench, and a cable cutter or razor, be careful that you replace the black negative cable first, then red, then red new cable, then new black cable last. Watch the acid fumes their invisible and cause a caustic irritation on your skin and eyes, so use safety equipment, ok?

This doesn't really help me much. Can you tell me step by step how to do it once I get the battery out?

If the cables are the correct length, follow their lead to each connection, one at the engine, and one to the harness of wires, unscrew from engine, replace, hook up connection of positive to loose unconnected end, depending on part you have, if they came with terminals, hook positive first, neg. Last, after battery back in, did ya get dealer cables, or just correct size? Should be all 13mm wrench. Shouldn't take too long about hour. It depends on if they have terminals installed or not, ok? Just e-mail me, any further instructions. Ok?
