Cayenne Turbo Battery Replacement Guide DIY

This was done on my 2005 Cayenne Turbo. I only have a battery under my drivers seat. I think some might of came equipped with a battery in the trunk.

I did't want to pay the dealer $400+ for a OE battery and labor. I was able to get mine from Advance Auto Parts for about $130 after coupon code.. It took me about 30 mins max!

It often is the easy jobs that intimidate and scare those new to the car maintenance. Having these write ups helps to give others the info to complete as diy. Otherwise tbey are much more likely to pay to have it done. So good job and keep em coming.

Great post! I am somewhat used to turning a wrench and actually thought that accessing the battery under the seat was unnecessarily complicated.

My biggest frustrations was:

1) You need to move the seat a few times in order to get it completely out of the way. This thread makes it easier to understand.

2) I had to remove the plastic seat rail covers in the rear since they got "pinched" (and subsequently broken) when tilting the seat back. The owners manual did not mention this and I had to buy replacement seat rail covers.

I am sure having it so low is better for weight distribution and lower center of gravity. However, it is more complicated than I would prefer. At least you only have to access it once every 5 years, so I guess the minor inconvenience is worth the handling gains.
