Video Description

If the battery in your 1998 Nissan Altima has crusty white or green build-up and corrosion on the clamps, posts or terminals, you can improve the performance and lifespan of your battery significantly by cleaning it. Your battery is depleted when it is used to start the car, but then recharged when you drive your Altima, the corrosion limits the ability for your Altima to recharge the battery when driving. The video above will show you the correct order to safely remove the battery clamps in your Altima and what to use to clean your battery terminals and clamps. We will also show you a tip for preventing this buildup in the future so the battery in your Altima will be optimally charged whenever you drive it!
