It appears that the battery is shot! Right? The bolt is there, but the plastic has melted over it. You will need a new end anyway, so cut the cable off close to the terminal. Out with the old battery! Frankster016

Have a delcotron alternator ,what to know where no.1 terminal and no.2terminal wire goes it is on my 1946 cj2a jeep my amp hand does not show a charge had alternator checked out and is ok

  • Use a wrench to remove the negative and positive battery cables: They are clearly labeled "+" and "-." Always remove the negative cable first, as this isolates the power to the metal parts of your car. Tuck the cables away from the battery as you don't want them to accidentally touch a battery terminal when you're wiring your alternator.

  • 3

    Locate the alternator terminals. There are two: one marked "live," "pos" or "+" and the other marked "neg," "field" or "-."

  • 4

    Locate the two cables. The positive (red) cable goes to your battery via a wire loom or harness. The negative (black) cable attaches to a metal part of your car.

  • 5

    Check how the cables attach to the alternator terminals. Some connect using eyelets that hook over the terminal and tighten with a bolt; others connect by inserting the wire under the terminal and tightening a bolt.

  • 6

    Loosen the two bolts using a suitable-sized wrench or, if the cables connect using eyelets, remove the bolts.

  • 7

    Insert the exposed end of the negative (black) cable under the loosened bolt on the negative terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 8

    Insert the exposed end of the positive (red) cable under the loosened bolt on the positive terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 9

    Replace the positive battery cable on the positive battery terminal using a wrench. Replace the negative battery cable on the negative battery terminal.

    How to jump off a BMW 325CI

    The battery for your car is located in the trunk. There are jumper terminals located under the hood in the front of your car. There is a Red (+) terminal that is under a little black cover on the passenger side of the engine bay near the firewall. Right near that is a silver/gray bolt that is bolted to the frame of the car. This is the negative terminal.

    Make sure both cars are and all accessories are off:
    1) Connect the Postive cable to the dead battery
    2) Connect the Positive cable to the good (BMW) terminal
    3) Connect the Negative cable to the good (BMW) terminal
    4) Connect the Negative cable to the dead battery
    5) Start the BMW. (if you have 2 people then gently rev the engine)
    6) Start the dead car.
    7) Let both cars idle for a while before disconnecting any cables
    8) Remove in the opposite order.

    So do i pull the red rubber covering off where the cord is connected to the battery which indicates the positive side i believe on the battery then use a wrench to take it out from there? and just a...

    Yes, remove the rubber protection cap. You need only the properly sized wrench; if available use a box end or socket as these bolts can soften over time and the head of the bolt can get rounded off, making it harder to remove. It should come free quite easily.

    How to remove battery in 1992 Toyota Corona so it can be recharged

    (1) Loosen screw on negative ( - ) terminal clamp, lift negative cable off terminal, and put cable end somewhere where it can't touch the battery. This stops the positive terminal from being "live" with respect to the rest of the car.

    (2) Lift plastic cover from positive ( + ) terminal. Loosen screw on positive terminal clamp, while making sure your screwdriver is nowhere near the negative terminal at all times. Lift positive cable off terminal, and put cable end somewhere where it can't touch the battery.

    (3) Loosen the butterfly nuts over the clamp that holds the battery to the tray. One butterfly nut will have to come off completely, the other can stay on so you don't lose the clamp down the middle of the engine. Swing the clamp off to one side.

    (4) Lift the battery out of the tray, keeping it upright at all times.

    To reinstall the battery, follow the above steps in reverse order.
