Introduction: Cleaning a Car Battery Pole.

Picture of Cleaning a Car Battery Pole.

The negative of my wife's car battery pole is slack to touch. This is not good! It is so slack I can remove it by using 2 fingers.

Step 1: Corrosion.

As you can see the pole has significant corrosion. This needs to be removed.

Step 2: The Tool.

This brass brush is perfect for cleaning lead poles.

Carefully brushing the pole and the clamp, I made sure all surfaces were clean.

Step 4: Completion!

Using a 10mm Spanner I tightened till snug. Now the clamp is secure on the pole and the vehicle ready for the road!

It is good to use battery contact paste to seal it. Once you have those crystals there, those will be back in no time.
