How can I fix a ni cad battery for my Rigid and DeWalt drills?

Is there free information available online (and I do mean FREE!) that will guide me through repairing the ni cad batteries for my 18V Rigid and 14.4V DeWalt drill motors and where may I find it?

I just found this site on another blog from this website and it seem to work. Haven't tried it yet, though!

If you can physically take the battery pack apart, you will see that it contains a number of cells wired in series to make up the voltage of the pack. These cells can be replaced - there are 100's of ebay listings. The cells will be a strange size - '3/4 AA' for instance, but every size imaginable is available. While you are at it - use NiMH cells rather than the original NiCd. They will last longer and have little or no 'memory' effect.
