Only thing it should reset might be your radio presets. If you have a factory radio, make sure you have the pin number, but other than that there's no problem disconnecting the battery. It's a common thing to do when you work on the car.

As for cleaning it, just use a wire brush to clean the terminals, and use a damp cloth to wipe it down. I wouldn't spray degreaser on it, if it's really grimy maybe spray a little on a rag and wipe it, but don't go nuts.

u can poor hot water over the terminals, will get rid of any build up, but if you want to clean em good, u'll have to disconnect them and attack em with a wire brush.

EDIT: danja bet me to it :)

lol dude ur funny

just in case ur serious :p yes we all have to start somewhere

10mm socket or spanner, undo the nut (u dont have to remove it) then it should be loose enough to wiggle off, wire brush the battery terminal (carefull not to short the 2 together) then wire brush the wire terminal (the big loop, dont know the proper name) then place the ""the big loop"" back on the battery pushing down all the way, then do up the nut again.
repeat the other terminal :)

bit of soapy water and a rag should do the trick, if its in the vs wouldnt worry bout reseting things as long as uv got the stereo codes
