I have a dead battery on my 2012 Range Rover Sport HSE LUX. Is it safe to purchase from AutoZone or Advanced Auto Parts and replace it myself?

AutoZone or Advanced Auto Parts website warns: REQUIRES PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION: DO NOT attempt to install batteries in this vehicle.; Battery is vented to outside of vehicle.; Professional installation required.

Thanks for any advice out there!

Yes install it yourself it is easy if you have ever installed a battery before. Not sure why they think it needs a pro to install.

There is simply a small black tube that connects to the vent on the battery and it's very easy to see, it's on the top of the battery towards the front of the truck. Also if you have Gap iiD you can tell the car it has a new battery. I didn't have a tool the first time I changed my Rovers battery (4yrs ago), but did for the recent change. Zero difference -that I could tell. Easy peasy.
