Video Description

If the battery in your 2008 Volvo XC90 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 XC90, the corrosion limits the ability for your XC90 to recharge the battery when driving.

We will also show you a tip for preventing this buildup in the future so the battery in your XC90 will be optimally charged whenever you drive it!
