5 Steps To Remove And Change The Battery In A Hyundai Tucson

First debuted in 2005, the Tucson represents Hyundai’s first steps into the small SUV market. The combination of sport utility vehicle body elements with a more economical engine helped launch Tucson as a successful automobile brand. This time we will show you how to remove and change the battery in a hyundai tucson correctly.

The engine in these vehicles is reliable and usually only requires basic maintenance, such as changing the battery periodically.

How to Remove and Change the Battery in a Hyundai Tucson

The steps you must follow to remove and replace a battery in a Hyundai Tucson are as follows:

  1. Pull the hood release lever, located just inside the driver’s door, near the ground, to open the hood of the hyundai tucson. Use a ratchet fitted with a metric socket set to remove the engine cover.
  1. Locate the battery and spray a small amount of terminal corrosion spray on the negative node of the battery. Using the wire brush, clean any corrosion residue on the nodes. Use a 19-millimeter wrench to loosen the screw from the connection to the negative node. When the terminal is loose enough, pull out the negative terminal of the battery.
  1. Remove the positive cable from the battery using the same method that was used to remove the negative cable. Use a crescent wrench to loosen the cable connections and clean any surface corrosion.
  1. Remove the old battery and set it aside. Lift the battery out of its tray and remove it completely from the motor section. Insert a new battery into the exact spot where the old battery was removed. The Hyundai Tucson uses a 24-24F 9-volt car battery. Clean the battery terminals with a wire brush.
  1. Align the terminals with the adjacent nodes of the battery. Connect the positive node to the positive terminal of the battery and the negative node to the negative terminal. Use a 19-millimeter box wrench to attach the connectors to the terminal posts. Spray the terminals with anti-corrosion spray, then place the motor cover firmly on top of the battery.


To properly remove and change the battery of a Hyundai Tucson the tips to follow are:

  • Wear protective glasses and gloves, especially when handling batteries and aerosols.
  • Take the old battery back to the auto parts store for proper recycling.


Make sure you are using the correct size battery. Using a 12-volt car battery can damage the Hyundai Tucson.
