Hello my name is Tom Brintzenhofe I’m a certified
master mechanic from Reading, Pennsylvania. Today we are going to talk about how to clean
up battery leakage. First thing you want to keep in mind is your safety. You always want
to wear safety glasses around a batter, batter acid, sulphuric acid is not good if you get
it in your eyes. This particular terminal right here is the negative batter terminal.
It’s got plenty of corrosion on it. I’ve already loosened up the battery terminal. To save
us a little time here. Just loosen up right here this little nut, pull your battery terminal
off. This little tool you can find it’s only two or three dollars at your local parts store.
A little wire brush. It goes up inside here you just turn a little bit,cleans the batter
acid from the inside. Brush it down on the outside. Get as much off as you can. And the
same thing on your battery terminal. Clean as much away as you possibly can. Get yourself
a rag and wipe it off. Stick your terminal back on there. Tighten your terminal down.
They have another product Permatex mix it’s a battery protector and sealer. Just go ahead
and spray it on your battery. And that will keep it from rusting or corroding up on you
again. It dries in a matter of minutes. It’s no big deal. Any do it yourself at home a
couple of minutes, you’ll be good to go.
