If you are talking about the battery clamp bolts turning, then put a screwdriver in the split of the clamp and try to put turning pressure on the screwdriver and at the same time undo the nut of the clamp bolt. Or if you have a pair of mole grips, clamp the bolt head and undo the nut. Worst case , pry the clamp off the terminal and use a hacksaw and cut the bolt in half and remove it , fit a new bolt after. Hope that helps

How to remove battery


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.

How to remove a starter from a 2003 expidition


Thank you for using Fixya.
Heres's the procedure on how to remove and install starter for your 03 Expedition. First remove the battery cables from the battery. Remove the electrical connections to the starter and label for replacement. There are 3 bolts - 13mm. The bottom bolt is also the ground terminal, therefore you will need a deep socket for that bolt. The other two are accessable ideally with about a 7" extension to your socket wrench. The top bolt is on the top of the starter and you could fit your hand up there to feel it and place the socket. The 3rd bolt is between the bottom and top bolts. Remove the 3 bolts and the starter falls right out.

All the best!

I need to replace the battery on my 2004 Audi TT. I removed the cables from the battery posts. I took off a bolt down the bottom of the battery that was holding a clamp that held the battery...


Sounds as if the battery has just stuck to the rubber gasket that it sits on, have you tried a bit of good old brute force? Try giving it a move from side to side and let me know how you do...

Check all grounds ie motor to body ground strap connections for corossion, battery to motor ground, battery to body ground. You have to check under bolt to see if there is coeossion. Bad grounding can cause all sorts of electrical problems

How do i remove the alternator from a 97 saab 900


You do not have to remove the wheel unless you have th 6 cylinder engine (2.3l). Then yes you do:

Disconnect Negative Battery Cable
Remove the air cleaner and hose from between the air breather/cleaner and throttle housing
Relax the belt tensioner off the belt and pry off the belt
Remove the right front wheel, black belt cover/protector, and the wheel hub nut and slide the hub off the drive shaft/outer Cv joint
Disconnect the alternator, remove the alternator/air intake hose, 2 bolts that hold the alternator in and remove it through right-hand wheel housing.

Yes, this is immensely annoying. I hope you figured it out...
