  Vehicle Damage Warnings  

CAUTION: Keep the battery and surrounding parts, particularly the top, clean and dry. If electrolyte is evident on the top of the battery, clean it off immediately. Even a weak electrolyte quickly attacks and corrodes the cable connections, battery hold-down clamp and battery ground cable. Use a rag soaked in a weak solution of water and ammonia to counteract the action of spilled electrolyte.
