Remove the negative cable from the battery first. Always disconnect the negative first and replace it last to prevent sparks. Remove the negative cable from the body or engine end. Clean up the area with a wire brush and install the new negative cable. Leave the negative wire off of the battery for now until the positive cable is replaced.

Remove the positive cable from the battery. Remove the positive cable from the starter. Clean up the electrical stud on the starter with the wire brush. Install the cable on the starter. Install the positive wire on the battery. Cover all electrical terminations with dielectric compound to seal out moisture and corrosion.
