They are just to hold the battery off the firewall a little bit.
But the battery still corroded those bumps due to an engineering flaw
when the car was designed. The original battery terminals were too close
to the firewall thus corroding those bumps.
Get a battery with the terminals OUTSIDE from the firewall so this
doesn't happen again.
