I think your current terminals should be fine. They and the battery posts just need to be shined up with a wire brush or some sandpaper. I tend to tighten mine to the point that it stretches the lead clamp a bit more every time, I think these lead ones have a limited number of uses. I've removed and re-installed mine so many times that I had to cut the gap with a grinder to make them work again.The terminals are tight and I cannot wiggle them. Heck, I have to insert a flathead in the gap to spread them apart enough after loosening the bolt to get them to break free. If you feel the terminals need replacing would these work well?
If you use vinegar; make sure to neutralize it afterwards with water and baking soda. If you leave any vinegar residue on metal it will corrode like crazy the next time it gets wetI removed the clamps and have them soaking in vinegar overnight. I have a battery terminal tool cleaner as well and will clean the posts a bit. If all else fails I might buy a battery and see if that does the trick even though Autozone told me the battery was good.
Alright, I cleaned more and put brand new terminals on. What do you guys think?If you use vinegar; make sure to neutralize it afterwards with water and baking soda. If you leave any vinegar residue on metal it will corrode like crazy the next time it gets wet
I used sand paper, a battery terminal cleaner tool, and sprayed an acid detector over everything. That might be the yellow stuff you see in the pics to the side.It's hard to tell but when you cleaned the cable ends did you use sand paper or a wire brush and clean until they were shiny?
That took me a minute. Heihei is my current favorite animal side kick... especially considering he's voiced by Alan Tudyk.Don't forget to rule out a gus gus causing all of this headache 🐀🐀🐀
