Battery post cover

870 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  slimerdogs
Yesterday a honda service writer (not mechanic) cleaned my battery posts that were full of corrosion. I guess he didn't want to take a mechanics time. During the process he tore off the red plastic cover for the postive post. Does this cover serve any important purpose? Is there a way to replace it?

it is there to protect against any accidental contact of the post and a grounding point such as reaching in with a wrench to adjust something in the area and bumping the positive post with the end of the wrench while in contact with something else conductive.

The service writer should order you a new one since they broke it. They are cheap.
