Sripped battery terminal. Help?
The inside threads of the positive battery terminal on my battery are stripped out. (Die Hard Gold battery, side terminals.)
Obviously, I can buy a new battery, which will have a new terminal, and my problem will be solved.
Does anyone know of any alternative fix? It looks like there'* some good threads deep in the terminal, but the outer threads are stripped. Are there any sort of gadgets like an adapter with an oversized bolt or something that will fit in there, that works?
(Can battery terminals on batteries be replaced?)
Worst case scenario, I buy a new battery. My battery just passed exactly five years old, so if I buy a new battery, it won't be a total waste, although I wasn't having any problems with the current battery.
Ideas? Thoughts? Anybody deal with this before?
