only battery fixing nuts in my microcat for a Td5 D2 are flanged nut M6 part FN106047L, with either J bolts AMR5280 or straight bolts AMR5735

ah, that helps, microcat only shows the battery cables as a assembly, it doesn't list the bolt/nut as seperate parts.

any suitable sized bolt/nut will do as a replacement.

As Ralph has said, in the post above, they're not available separately, you have to buy complete new positive and negative battery leads, at great expense :o

IMO, the type of battery clamps Land Rover use are cr@p :angry:

A heavy-handed gorilla of a previous owner had over-tightened the ones on mine and they were no longer able to clamp the battery posts tight enough.

I cut the connectors off of the ends of the battery cables and crimped on tube terminals with a 10mm hole, I can't remember if I used 25mm2 or 35mm2 terminals (there's about a foot of snow on my car at the moment, so I'm not going outside to have a look ;) ) -
