How to replace hybrid battery on a budget?

My 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid (no-navi) has about 260k miles. It has the original hybrid battery and it is definitely not holding charge. I like to tinker and was hoping someone out there had some information on how to replace it with an aftermarket or how to rebuild the battery pack. Thanks!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Thank you for all the info. Yes, the car has two batteries -one for the typical accessories and starter (12V) and the hybrid battery that powers the hybrid motor. FYI: the hybrid battery charges the 12V battery! I have use the links provided above and have found other similar links as well. They all pretty much do the same, take the sticks out, recondition them using an off-the-shelf R/C (remote control) discharge/charger. I will get to it! Fun stuff. Have a good one everyone!

Also, oldturkey03, why isn't my rep going up when my answer is accepted or voted up. It goes down when it's voted down. Look at my activity: https://www.ifixit.com/User/Activity/455...

Apple, it is possible that you have surpassed the maximum of daily points. Right now you show 665 reputation points. I shall check in the morning and see what it does. If there is no change I will contact the ifixit gurus for you

Thank you oldturkey03. It looks like it's getting a bit better but the other answers that got accepted aren't giving me reps yet.

That is correct. Any point you receive above your daily limit will not get counted.
