Default terminal posts of the Toyota battery car

My Toyota Corollar car is of the type NZE-120. I traveled to a country where the original Toyota battery does not exist. So, I bought a battery but the two battery terminal posts do not fit in the battery cable clamps. I have an idea of thinning the terminal posts of the battery so that they can fit in the battery cable clamps. Does this have any negative effect? Are there any other solutions?

The only 2 types of battery posts I know of are top post and side post. You can easily buy an adapter to bolt on to make it fit what you need.


Or you can cut the ends of the car's battery cables off and clamp on a different style of terminal.

The Toyota Corollas I've seen have a battery like this, with the posts on top.


The only other type of automotive battery I know is a GM side post battery.


I wouldn't alter the battery. You could damage the inside by cutting the posts or worse, cause an explosion and hurt yourself.

Can you post a picture of the battery you plan to use so we ca see the terminals?
