I came across this problem when i wanted to add a 4 guage wire to it for my amp and it wouldn't fit. So i took a razor blade/carpet knife to that hard rubber and cut some of it off. Worked wonders =D. Not sure if thats what ya meant, but hope it helps xD.

If you buy a new battery, most stores will help you replace it. you will need a ratchet set to remove the positive and negative ends of the terminal. you should remove the positive end first. and for the new one, add the negative end first.
Disconnect negative battery cable first then positive then remove battery hold down screws and install in reverse. Use rubber gloves to prevent battery acid with skin contact. I prefer using rubber pliers on negative battery cable. I feel its safer. When putting negative battery cable on, place on holding rubber part not the metal contacts.
Make sure key is off. Remove battery negative terminal, then the positive terminal. Now remove battery holder-some have a hold-down bolt near the bottom of battery, or clamps to remove. Take old battery out and replace with new, and secure the holding fixture. Attach positive terminal first, and last the negative terminal. Make sure cable ends are clean-use a battery post cleaner tool to get the posts and cable ends as clean as possible.
Fairly easy. First, remove the hold-down bracket. Some are held by a rubber insulator near bottom of battery tray, and retained by a 13mm bolt that needs removing. Then, always take off the negative post cable first to avoid an electrical spark. Then remove the positive cable, and pull battery out. Be sure and clean the terminals with a wire brush or battery cleaning brush before you install new battery. Again, put the positive cable on first, and tighten. Then the negative cable last. Good luck.
IF STARTER RELAY BAD THE STARTER WONT MAKE NO NOISE AT ALL HEADLIGHTS WONT DIM.IF YOU CLICKING NOISE BATTERY VOLTAGE TOO LOW. MAKE SURE BATTERY VOLTS ARE 12.6 VOLTS AND USE TEST LIGHT TO SEE IF STARTER GETTING POWER.COULD HAVE BLOWED IGNITION FUSE OR FAULTY IGNITION SWITCH.

Open the hood and find the top-post battery on the passenger's side of the Honda Accord.
Loosen the bolt on the black negative battery cable with a box wrench or cable clamp pliers. Carefully wriggle the cable end off the post.
Repeat the process on the red positive cable. Make sure to take off both cables from the battery even if you're replacing only one.
Follow the negative cable to where it's grounded to the front frame of the Honda Accord. Remove the end of the cable with the wrench. Track the positive cable to its connection on the front side of the engine and remove it with the wrench.
Clean the battery posts with a small wire brush
Attach the new positive cable first, reversing the process in Step 4. Put on the negative cable and start the vehicle to make sure the connections are working properly.
It's not that hard; Make sure that both cables are disconnected from the battery FIRST, then remove the engine connections one at a time so that you do not mix up the connections.
Remove the right wheel inner fender splash shield.
If equipped, remove the alternator dust shield attaching bolt and unclip the shield from the alternator. When removing the dust shield, be careful not to damage the rubber boot over the battery's positive terminal.
Disengage the alternator field wire connector.
Remove the retaining nut and wire from the positive (B+) terminal on the back of the alternator, using alternator output stud wrench SA9401C or equivalent, as a back-up wrench to prevent the stud from rotating. If the positive terminal stud rotates, the plastic insulator will crack or break, causing alternator failure.
Remove the upper and lower alternator attaching bolts.
Remove the alternator from the vehicle through the wheel well opening.
Position the alternator in the vehicle and install the lower attaching bolt.
Install the upper attaching bolt and tighten both bolts to 24 ft. lbs. (32 Nm).
Engage the alternator field wire connector.
Install the B+ terminal wire. The battery terminal wire should be placed on the back of the alternator between a 10 and 11 o'clock position.
Be sure to use the alternator output stud wrench SA9401C to prevent the terminal stud from rotating, then tighten the alternator positive terminal nut to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
Install the alternator dust shield and tighten the fastener bolt to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
Install the serpentine drive belt.
Install the wheel well splash shield and right front wheel. Tighten the wheel lugs in a criss-cross pattern to 103 ft. lbs. (140 Nm).
It isn't too difficult just do one at a time. Disconnect from your battery and then disconnect other end where it attaches to engine. There may be brackets along it's length that will have to be removed that secure it make sure to reinstall these on the new cables. I would suggest though before attaching your actual ends to your battery go ahead and replace bothe cables so you don't accidently arc your positive cable anywhere. It's just a safety precaution. Remove your negative battery connection before starting procedure.
Yes. There will be a post that should be red and will be surrounded by an inch thick of plastic / rubber. That is your positive post. There may be a negative post near it, your you can use the frame of your car which is negative as well
Open the battery compartment. Loosen the bolt on the negative battery post first. Then remove the negative cable from the battery. Do the same to the positive cable. Remove the hold down bracket with a 10mm wrench. Lift out the battery please keep in mind it has acid in it. Now replace with new battery and connect the cables negative to negative , and positive to positive. You may need to reset your radio stations on your car.
