The prevention

At a detachment of the battery from weight be convinced that to you the code number раскодировки radio tape recorders is known. Disconnect at first a weight wire, then a wire of a positive pole.

Corrosion of a pole of the battery

Cars are completed served or unattended (late models) with batteries. Served batteries are supplied by stoppers for доливания the distilled water.

Care of the battery is reduced to check of a condition of the case of the battery, poles and plugs, presence подтеканий electrolit and corrosion on adjacent metal details, to periodic check of pressure and additional charge.

The places amazed with corrosion should be washed out a solution of soda and to paint a zinc ground. Plugs and poles should be cleared to shine.
1. Remove the plug from a polar tip of the battery (the mass wire at first acts in film, it joins in last turn).
2. Clear a battery pole.
3. At plug clearing it is necessary to remove corrosion completely.


For additional charge the battery should be removed from the car.

To charge the battery it is recommended a current no more than 2 And until then while pressure or electrolit density will not cease to change within 2 hours. The served battery to charge being guided by the instruction on the case (if instructions are not present address in car-care centre).

On a part of batteries are available built in ареометры chromatic type. The electrolit density in such battery is defined under the colour diagramme applied by the manufacturer (dark colouring of the indicator usually specifies in the full category of the battery). On completely charged battery pressure should be 12,6 Century
