Question about 1995 Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

I am trying to replace the battery on my 1995 T-Bird. After removing the cables from the terminals, I was dismayed to discover the battery would not move, not an inch, tight. I looked around each side of the battery, but could not see any clamps, except there was a difference at the front of the battery. Between it, and the back of the headlight assembly stands a thin vertical rod with a hex screw head. Is this some kind of clamp? I should add, the car has not been moved nor started in close to 2 years.

I have a 1995 nissan truck xe we just had the staerter tested and everything was good but when i try to crank it all it does is click. what would be the next step.

Clean all connections at the battery and starter; if the starter solenoid is separate, clean those too. ALWAYS remove the negative battery terminal first!
The smallest amount of corrosion on any of the heavy cable ends or their terminals can drop all of your battery voltage at the 100+ amperes the starter draws.

possibly the battery is fried or the battery cable connections are corroded. First try removing the cables and clean the cables and battery terminals with a wire brush. Many auto parts stores will test the battery for free.

How you do remove the battery from a 1995 Buick Regal?

Undo the two 8 mm bolts that retain the cables to the battery.
Remove the negative terminal first using caution not to contact the positive terminal with your wrench.
At the base of the battery there is a bolt with a 13 mm head. You need to loosen that bolt to allow the battery hold down to slide over enough to release the battery.
Some models have a brace rod that needs to be removed or loosened to allow enough room to pull it out.
Reverse procedure to reinstall.

How to install new positive battery cable.

This isn't too hard to accomplish,

first you will want to look at the battery, discover which terminal represents the positive side of the battery by looking for the fairly large + (plus sign), it should be close to the terminal where the cable attaches. Trace that very wire from where it hooks up to the battery or the starter relay down to the starter. Pay close attention to where the cable might bolt or is fastened, make sure the connections are tight. After you have visualized the (+) positive battery cable now go back and look at the connections and assess what tools it will take to remove the cable. Once you remove the cable you can measure the length of it and go to your neighborhood parts store and get a replacement that is the same length and has the correct ends on both ends.Install by reversing the technique it took you to take it off. Good Luck!
