Don't know the cable you are talking about, but if you work on it, please be careful. Remove any rings and jewelry, it can ground out and severely burn you. A friend almost lost his ring finger to such a burn. Always disconnect the negative cable first, since if a wrench hits ground, there is zero electrical potential. Once the negative is off, if you ground out while removing the positive, it has no path to ground.

Good luck on the hardware problem.

Another repair...

I'd not bother removing the old cable but buy a new cable as from a welding supply house or from someone as Summit Racing that has rear battery mount kits. Run the cable under the car with nylon tie-wraps to hold it safely in place. There are good terminal ends available that can be swedged on to the cable to insure no voltage loss.
