In this article, we will guide you through the process of removing and replacing the battery in your 2008 Chevy Equinox 3.4 liter V6. At 1A Auto, we have been providing high-quality auto parts and expert customer service for over 30 years.

To begin, you’ll need a few tools for this repair:

  • 13mm socket, ratchet, and extension

The battery in your Equinox is located under the module cover at the front of the engine compartment on the driver’s side. Here’s a step-by-step guide to removing and replacing the battery:

  1. Push back the module casing to release it and lay it off to the side.
  2. Push down on the tabs at the back of the battery box lid and lift it up to remove it from its hinges.
  3. Loosen the clamp on the negative side of the battery terminal using a 10mm wrench and remove the terminal.
  4. Repeat the same process for the positive side.
  5. Remove the 13mm battery hold-down bolt and bracket.
  6. Lift the old battery out of the tray and replace it with the new one, ensuring the cables don’t get caught underneath.
  7. Reinstall the battery hold-down bracket and bolt.
  8. Reconnect the positive terminal and tighten it with the 10mm wrench, then repeat for the negative side.
  9. If your new battery doesn’t have a date stamp, be sure to mark the month and year of purchase on it for future reference.
  10. Finally, reinstall the battery cover and start your vehicle.

After replacing the battery, you may need to reset some features in your vehicle, such as memory seats, radio station presets, or the clock. We recommend checking your battery’s warranty for future maintenance as well.
