Alright, so I'm stuck at mission Australia right now, worrying about my poor baby (and her corroded terminals)

I've been needing to change the battery terminal clamps for a while now, but I don't want to buy the wrong ones. I could probably just take a photo of mine, walk in, and guess which ones I need. But I don't want to mess around with this at all (haven't got money to be wasting... who has.)

Would you guys happen to know a part number or serial or even a link to the type that I'll need for my VT? A link to supercheap would be great, or auto barn, repco, anything along those lines.

Cheers,
Bronson.

I literally did, and he's like "mmm not sure" so I walked out (this was last night 3 minutes before close) I didn't have time to even look at mine or anything haha

haha, Pretty sure I can take a swing and get them myself, but I was just posting this thread for help incase I somehow have the wrong idea in my head on which ones to get.
Pretty sure mine are something like this:
Matson Battery Terminal - Stud, Positive, 1 Pack - Supercheap Auto Australia

EDIT: Do I need a different one for the positive/ negative terminal? Or would they be the same (as i said, I'm stuck inside at the moment and can't really go look)

Mmmmmmmm, 3 minutes before close.
I think that should tell you something.

The Supercheap ones look fine to me.

Thanks for your help guys went in and just picked whatever I felt like haha hooked them up in a few minutes and the car even starts smoother hopefully the better connection without all the corrosion will maintain the battery charge also.

My voltage sits at about 13.9 while idling/revving up to 1500rpm
If I whip on my hazards, headlights, stereo and a/c it drops to about 13.4/5 is that alright?

sounds about right to me, people will shoot me down for this but I use motorbike chain oil to stop corrosion - works great, lol.
