pour some hot water over the crusty acid on the terminals and it will just wash away... B)

i think maybe ya battery has a crook cell and is bubbling causing acid to rise and form around the terminals...

get someone to do load test on the battery and maybe get a hydrometer reading,local mech should be able to help,this will tell ya if it's knackered...

A mild solution of Bi-Carb Soda and water will clean the mess up and neutralise the acid. Be careful not to let it get inside the battery though.

this man speaketh the truth.

to prevent it happening again, ensure youre battery electrolyte it not overfull, get a wire brush and scrape back the battery post surface a little, then put a little bit of vaseline on the battery posts
