Question about Battery Cables for MKV Jetta 2.5L

Postby flip2jetta » Tue Dec 01, 2009 3:34 pm

I'm having corrosion problems with the positive battery cable. My question is are they fairly easy to replace? I can use any 4 gauge or 2 gauge wire right? The dealer actually found the problem when I was in getting my cat replaced under warranty. They quoted me ~$500 to change the cables! I just said no thank you.

Quick and easy or what??? I'm fairly mechanically inclined, I've pulled my MKIV's engine out and put it back but I've yet to mess with the MKV and I don't have a Bentley for it yet either. Any tips???
