Follow Up: Just so that you're aware of the dangers associated with doing a job like this yourself. Battery acid is very corrosive and one should wear old cloths as well as latex/rubber gloves and eye protection. Several things could occur.. when using metal or forged tools, and if you make a cross termination contact the battery could explore in your face. The protocol for the removal of the cables should be as follow.. Disconnect the cables, dislodge and remove the battery, then disconnect the cables from the car's grounding zones and starter. This is not a hard job, just requires tact. GL
