I can not even figure it out I've removed the 3 inch bolt that holds the handle down, but I have no idea how to disconnect the negative or positive. If someone can please help and dumb down the directions as much as possible

Screwdriver? Pliers?

Just look at the connector, and grab the right tool. :D

There's not. I compared my Mazda to my Mustang and the batteries are completely different. On the Mazda you just loosen a bolt and you can take the clamp off. On the mustang theres not a clamp. How do you do this?

You wil need a small puller. Put the center on the post and grab the sides. Found out the hard way. Couldn't get my daughter's terminal's off her '06 with a wrench and spreading the terminal with a screwdriver blade. My battery died 2 weeks ago away from the house on my '05. Came off with a puller.:yup:

Always remove the negative (-)cable first because that is the ground to the metal of the car.That way it won't hurt if you short the positive(+)cable to the chassis of the car.When putting back on,put the positive back on first and then the neg.

I looked at my 2009 GT last night when I got home from work -- the terminal connections look exactly like they do on every other car I've ever owned.

There's a nut on it you have to loosen on each to remove the terminals....
As [email protected] said, just loosen the little nut with a screwdriver or pliers, and the connection will become loose enough to pull off the battery terminal.

Post a photo if I'm wrong. I would be interested to see a battery terminal connector without that nut...

I took mine off a few months ago. The use an 8mm wrench on the terminals. I didn't need a puller, they just came off. I may have spread them apart just a little with a screwdriver, but it wasn't particularly hard to remove them.

...swaped out my bad battery yesterday, the negative clamb would´nt come off easy, I had to use WD40 and a 90 degree screwdriver to pull it from the terminal. The plus clamp was a snap they come off really easy.
