How to Change a Car Battery : How to Clean a Car Battery Tray


Hi, I’m Aaron Gregory on behalf of Expert
Village. And, we’re going to talk about what happens when your car battery dies, how to
select a new battery, and how to see what the problem is. Now, that we have the battery
out of the car. We’re going to take a look at the battery tray here and see if there’s
any servicing that we need to do. There’s a plastic guard that keeps some of the battery
acid off of the metal tray. So, let’s pull it out and see what the metal tray looks like
after twenty years of having this battery close to it. It’s pretty rusty and any paint
has vanished long ago. You can clean these components with the baking soda/water solution
to neutralize the acid. And, then treat the rust, maybe wire brushing off the loose rust
and try not to fluff it up and spread it around in your engine compartment because it’s pretty
abrasive. Rinsing it down with some water. Cleaning this area. As you can see, there’s
lots of crunchy old paint and nasty stuff. For this old car, we’re just going to put
the battery in and try to get to our next destination.
