Mechanics at the local garage have insisted it's "no problem yet", but people here in Sierra Leone have different standards to me when it comes to car safety...
This is a pic of the positive terminal post on my car battery:
Looks to me like a crack, going from near the bottom at the front just left of centre, across the top in a reverse
c shape, then down the other side. Whatever's under that cracked metal casing is visible through the crack.
It's hard (but not impossible) to attach the connector terminal - it feels like the post is maybe 0.5mm too wide and it takes some pushing to get it on.
I know any sort of crack to the battery casing is serious - but is something like this on a terminal post merely cosmetic, or is it terminal? (pun intended)
The battery works and can hold a charge, but discharges when not in use faster than I might expect.
