2007 with battery holder post--corroded


Recommended Posts


After washing my car a few days ago I,am wiping under the hood when I noticed by the battery the rod that holds the strap is corroded!! I rinse off some of the white corrosion and start to unscrew the rod so I could clean it better and the damn strap breaks.

I called the local Ford dealer and they stated no problem on replacing. Friends take a look

because this caught me off gaurd because I really never look at the plastic holder at the base of the battery.

On the new rod I will use the red corrosion spray!! BillyRay

It would seem to me for anything to be corroded that the battery is leaking.

take it to the dealer to have them take a look.

If you see corrosion around the battery terminals than the battery is leaking so this seems to me to be the same.



I agree.

I pulled my battery and the battery tray completely out a month or so ago to install headers and everything was very clean, no corrosion at all.

I would have them check the battery very closely.

You guys were right about a leaky battery!!!!!!!!! I pulled the battery out and it had a slight leak.

Whats your best tip on making sure I flush out all the corrosion and make sure no damage

from not cleaning up good enough.
