How do I change the battery of a BMW 2005 525i? I've found it and purchased a replacement battery at "Pep Boys" but the connection seems weird, not like an usual there a risk by replacing it myself or is it recommended to go to the dealership?

How can i get a new battery

Well, I did some searching. It looks like Pep Boys used to sell this, and I have found that several people who purchased it are complaining that not only are the batteries failing at an alarming rate, they can't locate the distributor for this brand, and neither can I. I could recommend a replacement brand, but I know that isn't why you are posting, so I will leave it at that. Sorry about the bad luck.

How to change a aultnder (not sure spelling is right)

I think you mean alternator. Can be found at any parts store (Pep Boys, Autozone, etc.) Have to take off the main drive belt by releasing the tension, unhook the positive battery cable from the battery, unbolt old alternator, remove wiring connector and positive wire, installation is reverse of removal.

Need a replacement battery for a 2003 Buick LeSabre custom

Most auto parts stores will change the battery for you if you purchase a battery from them. Walmart, NTB, Firestone, Sears, Pep Boys, etc..., offer this service also.
*(not endorsing any one in particular, reference only)*.
I would suggest a quality replacement with the recommended specifications for your vehicle. I.E, size, CCA, post orientation.
Pretty straight forward, cost and your individual preference are your limits. Figure between $50- $90 as a reference point. Mine was about $72 for a 1999 Buick Century, which is similar to yours.
