Question How do you replace the battery terminal connectors?

Mine are heavily corroded and I'm looking to get better conductivity with some new ones. Does it take a lot of work to replace them?

Re: How do you replace the battery terminal connectors?

Can you post a pic? You'd be surprised how much you can clean off with a baking soda and water solution.

If the cable is starting to break off at the terminal end, I think as long as you have enough slack, new terminals are not hard to install. They sell ones that clamp on to the cable if I remember correctly.
