I hope you fine folks don't mind me invading your forum for a question on what should be a simple matter.
Keep in mind I'm a Civic gal (ducks) so I'm used to simple foreign economy car engines, but my son inherited my father'* 1989 Bonneville. The alternator melted, and, both of us being short of funds, we'd like to change it ourselves. Now, I'm not an auto mechanic but I have done a lot of my own repairs over the years. Probably the easiest thing in the world to do is change the battery.
Except on this car. I've never seen a cable connected to the terminal without a clamp. How in the world do I disconnect the negative? Do I just pry it off? I'm afraid to attempt it since I know nothing of this type of connection. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated for this poor single mom.
