Help with my trickle ......


Recommended Posts

......... charger.

My Trickle Charger arrived today so I went out to the garage thinking "oh, I'll just connect this quickly" and realised very quickly that nothing in life is ever that easy it seems.

Can someone with a GTR give me a bit of guidance? As you can see from the picture below, the red cover on the positive won't lift sufficiently to connect the clamp. Therefore, I undid the screw holding the battery in place thinking it should be easy to slide forward and gain access but nope, she ain't budging. I may be missing something obvious (oft the case) so can someone shed some light for me?

Did your charger come with the eyelet connector? This does away with the clamps and offers a better long term usage.

Hmmm, I can't have opened the clamp wide enough because when I tried that it didn't stay put. Will give it another go tomorrow subject to Gav's comment re the eyelets.

Cheers Rob. :thumbs:

Hey Gav, yes it did. How would they connect and stay put?

Take the nut off each clamp and then put the respective eyelet on the bolt and re attach the nut and tighten it up, you can then just plug the charger into the connector each time you want to use it.

Lesmo has a picture in the battery charger thread in the 370z section of his Eyelet M8 attached and it`s the same thing 👍

Looking at how little room you have there a ratchet ring spanner would be best for that.

All good now thanks for the help folks. Not sure if my screw on the positive is longer than Rob's but I've had to open the clamp fully and it only just fits over and stays in place but I thought this would be easier than taking off screw etc (purely because I was doing this whilst in the garage where I have very little room to the side of the bonnet).

It is now charging/re-conditioning the battery - great result from the collective help of this great club once again!
