Thanks for using JustAnswer.
My name is Vladimir.
Unfortunately, the battery cables are not supposed to be replaced separately. It could be serviced as a whole engine harness.
If you are handy with electricity and soldering iron, you can make you own positive and negative cables and safely re-route ( lay) it in the engine compartment.
You will need a high quality thick cable, terminals/posts.
Remember that you should observe the original circuitry and doing such alterations is on your own responsibility.
