When you change out the battery you might take a minute and wrap that metal battery hold down brace (#5 in the above illustration) with some electrical tape. IF your wrench or ratchet ever falls out of your hand when working on the battery terminal (+) it will ground out on that metal hold down bar. Its not for the faint of heart when that happens. Ask me how I know!
