The post is an integral part of the battery. It is not separately serviceable and thus you must buy a new battery. If the post has dislodged, or any component of the battery is "broken", be very wary about the remainder of the battery as it contains sulfuric acid. Batteries are quite hazardous and can explode if short circuited and create a mess if leaking. If you desire battery replacement at your location, please request service and the responding certified mechanic will assist you.
