    Default battery spillage on engine beam of my honda city

    i have bought a new honda city.now i have observed that some battery spillage was there on the iron beam just underneath the battery(it is the beam on wihich engine is mounted).the spillage has removed black pain from the beam and metal is exposed with a little bit of rust on it. what should i do? has anyone ever experienced such problem? what would be the cause for it? would it be compromising safety ? what would be the remedy?

    ^^ wtf did u write


    @sky
    water batteris are messy.and if u overfill the water in them,the acid overflows and does a little damage as you mentioned. can happen in any car.
    if ur disliking it, change to dry battery or keep water level not more then max. plus use sand paper on rusted part + dull black spray. do a DIY
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    That is the sad part of ensuring quality product is given to the end user. You can approach consumer protection bureau for your rights on this. Suggest you take it to the 3S dealer you got the car from and give him a piece of your mind.


    For future, make sure no one over spills the battery acid. To avoid corrosion on the terminals, drop a few drops of brake oil over the terminals and connectors. 1-2 drops max, just enough to cover the battery terminal. Should not drip on the body or metal.


    The acid spill eats away the paint and leave the metal bare, prone to rust. If left uncatered, it could weaken the area.


    If the dealer or Honda dont do anything about your problem,
    then here's what you do.



    *) Clean the affected area + the surrounding with sand paper till there is no sign of rust. The clean metal surface should show.


    *) Get a harder primar and coat the surface, if you want you can coat it with red oxide. Let to dry for a day.


    *) Finish the surface with # 1500 wet sand paper till the surface as smooth as baby's buttocks


    *) Either apply matching vehicle paint or black paint over the area.


    *) Apply a thn film of grease over the area where the spillage occured to avoid any further mishaps. You can also spray some WD40.


    BTW, The 3S dealer would do the same thing & return it to you saying they did God knows what.

    Yes


    @poster


    Check few things. If it is really battery water or is it brake oil? If it's battery water, then mechanic or u might have spilled it while pouring it into the battery. Otherwise if battery spills it, there may b three reason.


    1. Battery might be over flooded with water


    2. Battery may b of low quality


    3. Battery is faulty and lived its life


    In case of point # 1, ask battery wala to remove excess water. In case of point # 2 and 3, replace the battery with some good brand like AGS, Exide etc. N yes, don't worry, there is no safety issue except the ruined paint from the area u mentioned

    Just buy a good quality Maintenancefree battery and be trouble free for 3-4 years
    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

    To clean rust you can also use Aluminium foil and rub the shiny part on the metal.Aluminium is softer than iron/steel and when you rub it against steel, there is a chemical reaction which removes the rust.
    I clean my car's rusted tail pipe all the time with this method, works like a charm.(Y)

    u get award for the worst reply of the year





    @poster


    well...dont worry its not big deal . just take the battery off and get the beam painted again. fit the battery again and make sure u tightly fit the battery plugs back in. and dont raise the water level more than prescribed/marked.





    happy driving
