Customer Question
How do I replace...

How do I replace battery in 2008 solstice?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Yes, it looks new but discharges in a few days. (10 days)

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Solstice yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am recharging it myself. I will do it if not to hard.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The back corner fender was damaged and I'm trying to get it to repair shop Tuesday. I don't want them to have this trouble.

Replacing the battery is fairly time consuming. You need to remove the wheel and tire. Then remove the wheelhouse liner.

Then there are fender to side wall brackets that need to be removed.

let me know if this is the info you needed. I can also get some factory workshop manual information if needed. Thanks.
