· Battery condition:
The first thing that you must do before you change the batteries of your car is to check the condition. If the condition is ok, there is no need of changing anything. Sometimes, the corrosion outside the battery compromises it. So if there is some kind of leakage on the terminals, you must clean it up first. It may be the reason of the bad performance of your battery.
· Secure environment:
If your battery needs to be replaced soon, the first thing that you must do is to take your car to a secure environment. This means to take it away in a garage or away from the reach of children and other people. This way, if anything goes wrong, there will be no causalities. You have to be so careful while removing the batteries of your car, because it contains sulfuric acid which can damage your skin badly. So before you try to replace it, wear the gloves on your hands.
· Wire connections:
Always remember the connections on the battery. There are two types of connections, positive and negative. The positive terminal is often red in color and it has plus sign on it, while negative terminal has a negative sign and it is often in black or blue color. However, there are many models in which there is no indication of signs. So in that case, you must be cautious while replacing the battery because you might end up destroying the electrical system of your car.
When you take out the battery for replacement, try to clean up the terminals thoroughly with the help of baking soda. Be cautious while operating it. There may have some kind of residue left on the wires and it might damage your skin deeply. SO wear gloves before you do anything. While installing the new battery, make sure to connect it properly.
· Lithium sprays:
If you have successfully installed the battery the next thing that you must do is to use the lithium spray on the joints. This will help to avoid the corrosion and if the terminals are already corroded, you must try replacing them with the help of a mechanic. You can get the location with the help of online maps and get your appointment soon.
If you are on a budget and you need to save money, then you should get used car parts instead of getting new ones. This will reduce your expense by half.
