    Question battery terminal oxidation

    I have noticed that the battery negative terminal has oxidation build-up while the positive is clean as new.
    Any ideas?

    take it back to vauxhall to clean it off and put contact gel on the battery

    Mix some Bicarbonate of soda to a paste and with an old paintbrush use that to clean your battery terminals, once dry cover terminals and clamps with normal vaseline(petroleum jelly), should prevent further corrosion
