This week I learned 4 new things about cars.
I. If you ain't going to drive for longer than 2 weeks...
...you only need to use a wrench, size 10 in my case, and loosen the negative(black) terminal form the car battery. Et voilà.
And if you're as lazy as me you will use a ratchet wrench/socket handle.
Also, don't forget to retighten it, before you want to drive again. Else your car won't work.
II. Had I known that earlier...
...my car battery wouldn't have gotten exhausted to the point of no return.
Which means, I wouldn't have had to pay that guy from the Honda repair shop such a horendous price to put a new battery into my little baby.
III. Something that I...
..could have done myself actually.
It is so easy to change a car battery, that even a five year old could do it, if you held them high enough so they could actually a.) see what they do & b.) reach it so as to work.
IV. And if you don't...
...drive more than 25 km's per week, buying a car is utter idiocy.
'Cause no matter what, the batteries will die sooner or later again, because you won't be able to recharge them enough if you only drive a 'tiny bit' around.
That's all folks.
Have a nice weekend and look after your Cars.
No matter how old or ugly those poor Babes are.
