Default battery access

Hi y'all,
I'm a PT newbie,bought a loaded '02 Dream.
Opened the hood to check the battery. In shock!
Do you have to remove all that plastic housing just to clean up the battery? I managed a peek at the positive terminal.Looks like a mess.
I want to clean it up & rescue the connector. What's the quickest easiest way to access the battery to do this simple chore? I want to remove as little as possible. Thanx, Hud[xx(]

i'm a PT

Welcome, Hud.
Crewzin posted instuctions, but I don't feel like searching....
Unscrew the air hose clamp & pull off the intake hose.
You should be able to pull up on the whole intake - it's held in place by posts that go into rubber grommets.
Use and old toothbrus on the terminals, and I suggest getting those felt washers to the battery posts - auto stores should have them. Some like a coating of vaseline on the outside.
