156 JTD 2.4 diesel battery needed

Hi all,

I think my battery is on the way out - can anyone tell me what kind of battery I will need, and is there a budget one? How much are they likely to be? I'm in London. 2001 car.

Do I need to get a battery specifically for Alfa (!!) - or would any diesel battery of the right size / output etc. be OK?

cheers all

Have you tried calling your local Motor Factors

Most carry listings/stock from the major battery manufacturers

Personally I always buy the 'heavy duty' option !!

They need to be the right size, shape, terminal layout, capacity.

Which will bring you to a specific choice of batteries from each range.

Don't bother with a budget battery.

It is worth trying your local Alfa parts dept, sometimes they have good prices and have been lower then others for batteries.

I've got a Varta in mine, which is still going fine after 4-years.
This link may work for the Varta batteries for your JTD.
