How To Remove A Badly Corroded Car Battery, Replace With New

My battery terminals were really corroded. It was so bad that the bolts and nuts could not be saved. When I got a new set of bolts and nuts, even though they were purchased based on the year and make, they didn’t fit well. I will show you how to fix that.

In addition to demonstrating how to remove a badly corroded battery and replace with a new battery, I will show you how to be safe and will explain the correct procedure to avoid hazards as well as damage to the battery assembly.

Replace Different Car Battery

Replace Original Car Battery With A Different One

Welcome to http://CarTrek.com
I usually go by the book when replacing car parts. But recently I replaced a car battery with a different size. I decided it is OK, except you need to pay attention about:
1. which side are the two terminals on?
2. Is positive closer to the left or right?
3. is the cable too short?
4. what about enclosures?
