    yah, i've had an optima yellow (the big dog) sitting in my garage for a long time because i couldn't get the cords to reach the terminals, but due to kurleedaddy's pointer of clipping the tie, i might get the slack i need. where exactly is the bracket you clipped?

    Locate your windshield washer resevoir. Above and behind that there is a black canister with three hoses going into it. This canister is bolted by a bracket to the engine compartment. Right underneath the canister, and connected to the same bracket is the the metal bracket with the clip on it that holds both the positive and negative battery terminals. The clip is tough to get off. I needed to unbolt my windshield washer resevoir, and use a long standard screwdriver to pry it up and off the bracket. If you need anymore slack, you will have to cut the electrical tape that connects both positive and negative battery terminals almost the whole length until the positive battery terminal reaches the starter motor.

    Good luck. Please take pictures when you are done and post them to this thread.
