Last week, we demonstrated how you can help yourself and save some labour charges by changing your own spark plugs. In this new edition of AutoDIY, things get a little simpler – so simple even your 10-year old might be able to do it.

If you’re vehicle has needed more than a few cranks to start up, perhaps you might want to look into your car’s battery for a start, how long it’s been in use and check out this video to find out how you can perform a simple battery swap.

Generally, it’s recommended that you change your car’s battery every one to two years (MAX!). If you actually took this initiative, first give yourself a pat on the back and then find out how you can dispose off the old battery in a way that would not upset mother nature.

A new episode of AutoDIY will be aired every Wednesday, with many more interesting and informative episodes to come.
