Video Description

If the battery in your 2016 Chevrolet Colorado 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.

The video above will show you the correct order to safely remove the battery clamps in your Colorado 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 Colorado will be optimally charged whenever you drive it!
