Re: Battery Terminal replacement

Battery terminals? Or battery cables?

The cables can be had for about five bucks a piece at your local vatozone.

The metal piece at the end of the cable that goes over the terminals on the battery itself.

Any parts store will have the whole cable with the ends on it for less than ten bucks.

Hey just so its out there you can replace the terminal posts on the battery as well...depending on what type of battery it is. I have had to do it on some of the Bigger UPS systems that we have, when someone screws up.

On heavy truck batteries? Sure.

On large (BCI 27) batteries? Sometimes.

On passenger vehicle batteries? Not that I've seen (although there are times I'd like to have been able to...)

This is what I'm looking for, where do the cables go from the battery and is it easy to disconnect and replace? Thanks 4x4fish

Re: Battery Terminal replacement

The cables are very easy to replace - remove the nuts on either end that attach them. Remove the negative ( - ) cable first, and reconnect it last.
