Loose battery cable?

\015 Battery not getting charged, positive clamp was cleaned and tightened, worked fine for a few weeks, now it's loose again. If I don't remember to tighten it, I have to have it jumped. Is it possible to change the clamp or do I have to replace the entire cable since there is a fuse at the terminal?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018
