How To: Replace Battery Earthing Leads

Recommended Posts

Replacing your Battery Negative Terminal Leads:

What you will need:

* Tough and sharp wire-cutters

* Two Heavy Duty Earthing Leads with Ring Connectors

* A Negative Terminal with two securing screws (one for each cable)

* A sharp Scalpel

* Screwdriver

There are two cables that need to Earth the Battery, one goes onto the Gearbox, and the other goes to the chassis.

1. Decide which Ring Connector you will cut off.

2. Remove the protective skin on the terminal.

3. Cut the wire as close the the connector as possible.

4. Using the Scalpel, cut throught the insulation all round the wire about 1.5cm down the wire.

5. Slide off the insulation to give you a bare wire end.

6. Insert the bare wire end into the terminal ring.

Make sure that you push the wire in as much as you can, holding it in place as you use the screwdriver to tighten the securing screw.

7. Repeat steps 1-6 with the other lead.

8. Feel proud of your achievement :D

One of the leads bolts onto the top of the gearbox, and the other bolts onto the chassis. Both of the bolt holes are very close to the Battery so it's not too hard to find them.

PM me if you need any more information.

I would have also tinned the freshly cut end as well, but us old blokes are just too finicky...

I will be adding that to the how to, I didn't have time to allow the soldering equipment to heat up! :lol: I'm an old man mentally, and a blundering fatass physically.

Thanks for the comment mate, I'll update it tonight. ;)
