I am pretty useless with cars but can usually change a battery pretty easy

I went and got the exact same battery at Halfords as I got 3 years before and swapped it over. However the battery terminal clip wouldn't tighten on it as it was too big.
I ordered an adapter but it was too small.
I reckon i need to replace the positive battery terminal but don't know how easy it is.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I probably wouldnt use halfords I tend to use online purchases such as here https://www.batterymegastore.co.uk
If you have just purchased the battery I would take it back to or at least have the conversation with Halfords.
From memory the positive terminal has additional fuses integrated with the clamp.
I would recommend that the correct battery terminal size and configuration is purchased along with the correct start rating.

Regards
