    Batery Leaking???!!?

    I was filling up my water fluid and checking the oil as a normal astra owner does.. when i saw that my battery was leaking out some fluid and i looked and it has eaten away at the wire harness next to the battery so there are bare wires showing! and has further leaked and rusted some of the metal work underneath the car!! i was wondering if anyone had any advise on it or if this has happened to anyone else??

    Cheers
    Dave

    If it's a genuine vauxhall battery they shoould be sealed matience free batteries.

    Either the battery is faulty of the alternator is over charging it which could end up damaging other electrical bits on the car
