Okay I need some help with a battery terminal and fusible link. This is for my daughters 2001 Rav4. I started replacing the battery and the positive terminal broke. I went to get a new one but the parts store tells me is a dealer item. I go to the dealer and $22 later I have the terminal. This is were the problem starts. As I tried to remove the old corroded terminal the part that connects to the fusible link breaks off. Is this a dealer item only? I had asked them about the wire only and they told me $900 for the wire because it is a harness. They never mentioned the fusible link. Can any one help me?

Installed it all and it worked. Daughters face after telling her the cost - PRICELESS and then there is............

Thanks for providing the update. Are you going to contact the dealer and tell him what it really cost instead of the quoted $900?

I'm having the same issue that you had and went I went to the dealership they quoted me $900 as well. All I need is the fusible link and the positive terminal cable. What part number did you request? Or do you have the part number for the 2 parts? Thanks for your help.
