OK, search police - most people have no time or inclination to search.

Buy a Walmart EverStart Maxx 7, $150

Removal of Old Battery

Open Frunk
Open Battery cover panel
Remove Vent line (passenger side), secure for reinstallation
Remove Positive then Negative clamps, secure for reinstallation
Unscrew Hold down clamp (passenger side)
Slide Battery to center of battery tray (towards passenger side)
Tilt Battery (forward edge up) slide forward slightly
Remove Battery

Installation of New Battery

Plug Battery unused vent hole (drivers side), use plug provided on + shipping cover
Slide Battery into place, ensure that the rear rail is engaged
Install Hold down clamp
Install Vent line (passenger side)
Install Positive then Negative clamps
Replace Battery cover panel
Close Frunk

Start car, PSM light will come on but disappear after you begin driving

I used my trickle charger to bring the battery to full charge before installation. Probably unnecessary

YMMV

And even after you were kind enough to post this, a week from now when it's no longer front and center, someone will ask how it's done or some variation of one or more of the steps or whether I can stand in the frunk or how to reach it with my bad back or.........:cheers:

Thank you for that! Quick, easy to fix and the kids just love it! And more importantly, you circumvented the much dreaded Porsche dealership for a pretty basic replacement!
