I'm trying to replace the battery on my 2013 Honda Civic. I gotta take off the hold down bracket but there is a little cap on top of the bracket nut that's keeping the cables (needlessly) secure. Before I do what I'd usually do, break it off, I was wondering if there is a trick in removing this cap? I tried pulling very hard on it and tried using a plier and squeezing the cap and pulling up. Nothing.
Here's a picture:
I tried looking online but I can't find anything about it. Maybe because I don't know what that cap is really called. There is a youtube of a battery replacement for the previous Civic model and all he did was pull on it, I tried that, hard, again nothing. Really irks me when car manufacturers do things like this :-(
