Just popped the bonnet and mine is just a single pole pos terminal, so i doubt it would help you.
But as i work on trucks all day everyday i'll see what i can find, i'm sure i can get hold of one before the 26th.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Sorry for my slow response - been really busy - looks like you are sorted now, but yes mine looked like that - unsure about the dimensions though

Replied by HUN on topic Positive battery terminal cover
Thank all of you guys! I'm just wondering how a battery without protective cap can pass mot as it can cause short circuit? :S I think my alternative solution will be a suitable size rubber sheet, glued on the inner side of the bonnet! :woohoo:

TrailMaster 2" suspension lift kit
Flo-Flex castor corrected polybushes
Kumho KL71 tyres

Only if it falls over because it is insecure, or hits the bonnet on a rollover, because it is insecure.

If the battery is secure the cover doesn't matter. If it is insecure, it fails anyway.

It won't hurt to insulate it, but it isn't strictly necessary. I've had plenty of cars without any cover over the positive terminal, although the Jimny and the current Renault Nissan both have them.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

This is really not an issue. Cars have been made for years without these. What us it we are expecting that us metallic that us going to jump across the terminals?
