Continued from last post:

Nexon diesel Battery tray rust solution.
I treated rust in this way:
Step 1.
Keep on rubbing the rusted area with sandpaper till shiny raw metal shows up.
Step 2. Use rust convertor on still rusted and hard to reach areas.
Step 3. Use metal, antirust primer over this layer.
Step 4. Use automotive grade paint over the primer. Preferably 2 coats.


These are pics after treatment:

Tools used in this DIY.
Its a simple DIY. Not many tools required. I will let the pics speak.

Precautions.
Don't tilt the battery while taking out. Acid will surely leak.
ECU is just touching the battery. Be very very careful while cleaning the tray with soap water. One splash and it can fry the electronics.
Result : Very costly replacement + Owner will look real stupid in his own eyes and in the eyes of flat bed truck operator from Tata etc.

Finally installed the battery back today morning. At least 5 different types of wires .Tricky and scary to work with.
Fired the engine .No CEL .So all happy.
