Understanding how to put water into a Toyota Prius battery can be somewhat confusing, but it is really straightforward. Adding water to car batteries is part of an owner’s responsibility and can result in negative results if not done properly or at all. Here are a few steps that will make the process of putting water into a Toyota Prius battery that much easier.
- A Toyota Prius
- Distilled water
- Start by turning off your car’s engine. Do not try and do anything to your car without first turning off the engine. Open the hood, find the battery and clean the surface of the battery. You should clean the battery so that this prevents dirt and other contaminants from entering the battery.
- Check water level. Make sure to check the the battery's water level. Add water to the battery until the level of the water is right below the cell inspection hole. If you overfill the water this can cause it to leak, leading to damage that could have been easily be avoided.
