I need to change the positive battery terminal
« August 13, 2019, 21:25:26 »
I need to change this positive battery terminal (i attach a photo) since it sulfate with the previous battery and has corroded.
Does anyone know which company sells this component?
Does anyone know the code of this component to buy?

The original battery terminal is not very good. The structure allows it the get loosen over time and you are not able to get it tight if the metal has been "worn out". I suggest you get just a generic battery terminal with just a horizontal straight through bolt. Much more simpler and robust structure. I changed my terminals to those and never had a problem with loose terminals after that.

I couldn't get the above link to work.  Is it just me or have others had  the same issue?
