- Using on Alternator Connections: For your alternator replacement, applying a thin layer of dielectric grease can be beneficial. It'll help prevent corrosion and ensure a long-lasting connection. However, be cautious not to overapply, as it can become counterproductive.
- Dielectric Grease Properties: It's true that dielectric grease doesn't conduct electricity. Its primary role is to seal out moisture and protect electrical connections from corrosion.
- Application on Battery Posts: Regarding its use on battery posts, the grease acts as a barrier against corrosive elements. When you apply it and then connect the battery terminals, the pressure displaces the grease at the point of contact, ensuring a solid electrical connection while the surrounding areas remain protected.
- General Advice:
- Use it sparingly; a little goes a long way.
- Apply it on the exterior parts of connections, like the outside of battery terminals or bulb sockets.
- Avoid using it on parts where electrical contact is critical and where it might impede the connection.
