Replacing your Battery Cable End
Thanks to your battery, you're able to listen to your radio, make use of your headlights, and get your car started. Automobile batteries are very vital components; however, they seem to be their own worst enemies. Why? Because most batteries, which are lead-acid secondary cells, give off sulfuric acid vapors while the battery is being charged. Over time, these vapors can corrode the battery connectors and damage them. In the event that this happens, the battery cable ends will call for replacements. Fortunately for you, changing out your battery cable ends should be a no sweat DIY task.

- Replacement battery cable ends
Step 1: When doing DIY repair jobs, especially electrical ones, be sure to wear safety gloves before getting started.
Step 2: Raise your hood and keep it propped open.
Step 3: Loosen the battery cable retaining nut. Remove the cable from the battery post. Cut the old battery cable using a knife or razor and remove half an inch of insulation from the snipped wire.
Step 4: Take your new battery cable end and loosen its top bolts. Insert the stripped end of the battery cable in the space created when loosening the top bolts. Then tighten the bolts until the connector securely holds the cable.
Step 5: Solder the wire to the terminal connector.
Step 6: Loosen the battery terminal retaining nut, and position the new battery cable end over the battery post.
Step 7: Tighten the nut until the connector firmly clamps the battery post.
Step 8: At this point, you're abut all set. Just close your hood and test out if the battery works by starting your engine.
Do not attempt to replace cable ends when one terminal is still connected to the battery. Doing this may result in electrocution.
