Put in the new battery after lifting out the old one. The last thing to do is to wipe away debris on the clamps then reconnect the cables.

To test whether they are working properly put water and if it drains out then it is functional. For much severe clogging use a speedometer cable that will clear out the debris efficiently as it has a better reach in the drain. Only when the Air filters need change is when it should be replaced.
