Q:how do you attached
A:Instructions to replace the battery terminals: 1. Remove the terminals from the battery, starting with the negative post (the black one) then the positive post (the red one). If necessary remove the battery so you have better access to cleaning it and the terminals inside the engine compartment. 2. Clean the battery posts and terminals. To do so wet the posts and terminals with water. Once wet sprinkle baking soda over them and scrub any corrosive material with a metal wire brush. Any discoloration or clumpy sand like substance should be removed. The metal of each post and terminal should be shiny when completed. Sometimes cleaning the posts will alleviate all of your problems and it is often a good idea to test the engine to see how it starts after this step. 3. With the cables disconnected sever the cable wire near the corroded terminal using a hacksaw or wire cutter. 4. Inspect the wires for corrosion or damage. Bad wires are sometimes to blame in addition to terminals. If the wires are corroded make sure you trim them back, removing the corrosion, before you connect new terminals. It is important to make sure the wire has enough length to reach the battery though. Remove roughly one inch or wire insulation prior to installing new terminals. 5. Remove the retainer screws on your new terminals and insert the wires into the appropriate location. Tighten the screws once the terminals are place. Repeat the process for the second terminal. 6. Reconnect the terminals to the battery and start the car. Hopefully this will alleviate your engine problems.
