Battery Terminal Corrosion

7511 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  MardiGras
I keep getting corrosion on the battery terminal. I also feel like this may be affecting the performance of the battery, since the car feels a little sluggish.

What's recommended here? Should I replace the terminal wire pierce and clean the battery? How can I stop this from happening?

Thanks in advance.

You can get replacement parts, but Honda makes you work for it to locate them.
Very true. I am YET TO find the part number for that red terminal wire. :readtherules:

Anyone happens to have the part number for the short red terminal wire?
How old is the battery? If the battery post is leaking, the only real solution is to replace the battery. Everything else will only limit the effect of the leaking post (ie, neutralizing the acid.)
It's about 3 years old.
The positive cable is $70 for an OEM from hondasuperstoreparts.com.
You happen to have the part number for it?
