RZR Turbo R Battery Removal and Installation

Your vehicle has a low-maintenance battery. Always keep battery terminals and connections free of corrosion. If cleaning is necessary, remove the corrosion with a stiff wire brush. Wash with a solution of one tablespoon baking soda and one cup water. Rinse well with tap water and dry off with clean shop towels. Coat the terminals with dielectric grease or petroleum jelly.
 
Note: If more amperage is required for high electrical loads, an additional battery can be added.

1. Ensure the key switch is set to OFF position before removing the battery.

2. Remove the driver’s seat. See the Seats section for details.
  • Pull up on the seat latch lever located under the front edge of the seat.
  • Tilt the seat forward.
  • Lift the seat upward to remove it from the vehicle.
3. Disconnect the black (negative) battery cable first, and secure away from the battery terminals.

4. Disconnect the red (positive) battery cable last.
