What seems to be the problem? Why won't they come off? They are simply wrapped around the cable ends. They should lift off when pulled UP.

How to change a bettery on a 2002 ford focus

Look at your old battery and make note of the brackets installation and the terminal (positive and negative ) locations. Remove the positive cable, then the negative cable where they attach to the battery poles. POSITIVE cables are normally RED.....NEGATIVE cables are normally BLACK. Remove the battery hold down bracket making sure you do not place anything metal across the two battery poles. Install the new battery into the battery tray, attach the hold down brackets, the attach the negative cable end then the positive end. BE VERY CAREFUL and DO NOT GET BATTERY ACID on you or SHORT ACROSS the battery poles with any metalic object. If you have not done this before and are buying a new battery from an auto center....they will...most times.....install the battery for you free of charge

How do you remove the positive battery cable? 1998 Isuzu Rodeo

The first thing to do is to remove the negative cable before the positive cable to prevent any shock and sparks. Battery cables have a nut and bolt keeping the lead made connector snug to the terminal of the battery. After loosening the nut you will need a pair of channel lock pliers to wiggle the battery cables end attached to the battery This will spread the connector open some to remove

I want know how to remove my battery so I can get it charged. I have removed the bolt that is a couple of inches from the ground nut. But the nuts that are near the battery terminals are so hard to...

I am confused by your description of the process you are using to remove a battery. If you can not charge the battery in place then there should only be three bolts to undue to remove it. There should be a rubber wedge near the bottom of the battery with a bolt going through the center that holds the battery down. This bolt needs to be removed and the block taken out to be able to lift the battey out. To remove the cables start with the negative one so that if you touch a metal part of the vehicle with the wrench it will not short to ground (put negative back on last for same reason) then positive side. It should be a cable side mount type battery with small bolt heads that actually undue a larger (approx 3/8") bolt that goes into the side terminals of the battery. If you have any further questions please reply to my solution.

Remove battery from 2005 Yukon

Automotive batteries are required to be bolted down to help prevent tip over into engine belts and pulleys. There is usually a bolt going through a rubber block that is located in the front of the battery. this has to be removed in order to remove the battery. Good luck.

The battery was bad and it was under warranty so i got a new one and i think i should change the battery cables how would i do that

Battery cables are attached to the battery on one end. The negative cable is attached to the chasis with a bolt on the other end. The positive cable is attached to the starter relay/solenoid.

You buy the correct length cables, remove the old ones and replace them.

How to get old battey out.

There should be a bolt that goes through a rubber boot. The rubber boot grasps the lip on the bottom of the battery. If you can access this bolt and remove it, then you should be able to pull the battery straight out, provided the cables will allow you enough clearance to do so. Otherwise, you'll have to disconnect the cables before pulling it out. Hope this helps solve your problem. Have a great day!
