I noticed yesterday that there is a white 'foam' around the negative battery terminal in my GP. I didn't touch it as I didn't know what it was!

Is this normal? I don't think I've noticed it before on any other cars.

this could be one of a couple of things is it foam rubber?

a white sticky foam (could be spray grease)

or a white powdery residue which could be oxidisation of the terminal in which case remove the clamp clean both surfaces with a bit of wire wool/ sand paper then smear both surfaces with vasaline
