I need a new cable from the positive battery to the starter motor. I think the above is the correct one. Everybody sells it. Nobody has a picture of it. My RAVE laptop and tools are still buried from my move. Anybody care to help out? TIA. The positive cable from the battery to the alternator is also original. Should I swap that out also? Truck is 02 NAS Bosch. Cables are black and quite stiff given the age.

To begin with.
What is the problem in detail with the wiring between the battery and the starter motor?
I copy pasted the part number AMR2545 and did a quick google image search and the first hit I recognized.

But what we see here and as stated by that french webshop it is the positive battery terminal with wiring to the fusebox. It is in one piece so if your problem is related to the positive terminal itself this is indeed what you need.

On my vehicle the starter motor wire was fastened to the battery terminal via the M8 nut.
The wiring itself is 35mm² both to the starter motor and the fusebox and the ground wires. Lugs should have 8mm hole.

Without knowing more it's hard to tell, but if I were you I'd replace it all. Both on the positive and the negative side.
Which I did on my diesel:
First one is the old ground wire from the battery.

This one is the new ground wires:

As you can see I have other battery terminals with lots of places to fasten wiring with screws instead.

Thank you for the help.
Turns out the part I need is YTA101890.
The plastic clip that holds it in place near the Alternator pulley came loose and the pulley grinder about half way through the cable.
Ugh. Seem the other part number I had was also correct. Maybe it is for a GEMS? The description on LR Direct is the same. On is $32.00 the other is $100.00. I just ordered it so I will update when I can confirm.

Bingo. That’s it. Thanks RRTH. At least I’ll have all new positive cables now. My battery clamp was getting bad also so it will be good to have a new one. New fuse box and relays as well. Thank you all.
