In this video clip, I will be showing you how to check your battery fluid level. On some batteries, you may be able to check the fluid level in them and some batteries may be sealed so you cannot. The first thing that I like to do is take a rag and wipe off any dirt or debris on the battery so that once I open it up, nothing accidentally falls inside. You can take a flat head screwdriver and go ahead and pry up these access points here and you can take a look inside the holes and you should be able to see some fluid. On this particular battery, it looks as if it is a bit low, so what you can do is take distilled water and you need to make sure that it is distilled water; any other type of water may damage the battery. Go ahead and take the distilled water and fill up each hole. Once you fill up each hole in the battery, you can go ahead and replace your caps and they should just press on and then you can go ahead and wipe away any excess water that might have got on it.
