Do most cars have the positive battery cable on the right and the negative on the lef

I'm trying to replace my battery but I'm nervous. I went to the lexus website page where it shows how to replace a battery and it shows that the negative is on the leftATEQ VT55

So i already connected the positive cable, but when i try to connect the negative it sparks a little. Is that normal?

Every day a little hard, you will from closer to the dream, one day you will realize your dream

They aren’t usually. The negative pillar is slightly smaller than the positive one. Automotive batteries typically have one of three types of terminals. In recent years, the most common design was the SAE Post, consisting of two lead posts in the shape of truncated cones, positioned on the top of the battery, with slightly different diameters to ensure correct electrical polarity.

If your car is having difficulty starting, or you find that it starts fine sometimes but ... the appropriate protective equipment any time you work on a car or truck. ..
