You change the battery like any other car, remove negative first then positive, and in reverse when installing the new one. Your SUV also needs to have the new battery programmed/registered to the vehicle so the charging system knows there is a new battery installed. Your local BMW dealer or your local BMW independent mechanic can do it for you. Sometimes it's cheaper if you buy the battery from them. Shop around, should be about $50 for the programming.....http://blog.bavauto.com/10764/bmw-new-battery-registering-1-3-5-6-7-series-x3-x5-x6/
