One response to “VW T-Roc (from 2017) – batteries”

  1. In the VW T-Roc, as with most modern cars, changing the battery isn’t as straightforward as in older models. However, it’s still a task that an experienced DIY enthusiast can accomplish with a basic tool kit. Keep in mind that modern cars have complex electronic systems, so exercise caution not to damage sensors or other components during the replacement.

    In the VW T-Roc, the battery is typically located under the hood, at the front on the right side (looking from the driver’s perspective facing forward). The replacement process usually goes as follows:

    * Ensure the car is turned off and the key is out of the ignition.
    * Disconnect the negative and positive battery terminals. Always start with the negative (black) terminal – this is important to avoid short-circuits.
    * Unscrew and remove any brackets or frames holding the battery in place.
    * Lift and remove the old battery. Be careful as they can be heavy!
    * Insert the new battery, making sure it is oriented correctly (positive to positive, negative to negative).
    * Reattach all brackets or frames.
    * Connect the terminals to the battery, starting with the positive (red) and then the negative (black).
    * Check that all connections are tightly secured and that the battery is firmly in place.

    After finishing the replacement, it’s also a good idea to start the car and ensure all electronic systems are functioning correctly. In some cases, after a battery change, you might need to reprogram some of the car’s functions or reset the clock or radio.

    If you’re unsure about the process, always consult your car’s owner manual or delegate the replacement to a specialist.
