Question about 2011 Ford Fusion SEL
My terminal is corroded, and the only way to get a new one is to replace the whole cable, I have the cable but not sure how to change it, or what tools are needed.
Posted by Anonymous on
One car owner did the whole thing, but never got back on to explaining the whole process
"to replace the whole stock oem cable is actually pretty intensive, it spiders off to the alternator, starter and the negative side is also apart of the assembly."
no wonder it costs $200 in labor alone at the local dealership
other owners did hack into and bolted together just the terminal end
as discussed in the following link on post #4 :

Make sure to disconnect the Negative battery cable first. Then you can do pretty much anything without making a short. Leave negative wire disconnected and then go wire by wire on the harness if there are smaller wires in the loom. Use a lubricating product on the threads, both the lead and copper metals are soft and do not reef on battery terminal when wrenching the retaining nuts, Use a protectorant after you are done.

Testimonial: "can you reach it all from the top of the car? i need more specifics. not exactly a car person and the cable has lots of connection parts for electrical stuff."
