PostSubject: Camaro Battey Hold Down   Sun Sep 26, 2010 6:20 pm

The battery in a Camaro is held by a little plastic bracket on the top of the coolant reservior. Well at least it is until it breaks, which is on almost all of them.

Items required: 1/4 round stock, 1/4-20 bolt and washer
Tools required: MAPP®️ gas torch, vise grips, 1/4-20 tap/drill, and spray paint

A little heat, bend to a L shape with a couple eyes for the bolts, paint and:


The hole in the core support is already there, just drill and tap.

That's my what I got done today message. I'd thought I'd share for all the other members that drive a Camaro. Smile

So he stuck 1 end under a bolt with washer, heated it to red hot, bent the hook.
THEN, dragged it across the battery, heated it red hot & pounded it down with a BFH contoured right around the battery. Looks pretty simple.. Shocked

No BFH needed, vise grips only.

I heated it and made one bend, let it cool while I searched for the BFH and cleaned the garage,

painted it.
Finished celaning the garage and found the BFH. Smile
Bolted it in the next day.

It's actually more of a Z shape with a slight S curve by the core. It came out close enough on the first pass.

You can buy one for about $20 but then you'd have nothing to do in between cleaning the garage.

Well it's mostly a true story, except the part about finished cleaning the garage.

Why would you need a battery hold down for a 4th gen Camaro?


Did anyone else think "The two door thread" was going to be about a Camaro? Smile
