With the advancement in technology, majority of the vehicles are now equipped with maintenance free car batteries. Such batteries do not require water and are sealed permanently. But some older car ones do entail the intake of water. Below are the steps to add water to your car battery.
1)First turn off the car’s engine and let it cool down for sometime. Lift the bonnet, check for battery location and then open the vent caps of the battery. Ensure that the surface of the battery is clean, if not; clean it to avoid the entry of dirt and dust particles in your car’s battery. Now remove the inspection cap.
2)Use of distill water is recommended to avoid irreparable damage to the battery. View each cell of the battery for the water level and then fill it accordingly.
3)Pour water in the battery to get the water level just below the cell inspection hole’s bottom and ensure that the water is not overfilled as this can cause the leakage of acid water mixture. If mistakenly overfilled wash the mixture with fresh water. After this, you can now cover the vent cap back on.
