which size battery

I have a 2008 1.9 jtdm. It needs a new battery, have got a 90 amph fitted at moment. Maybe the origanal ( has alfa badge on it) the thing is that every shop you call say it should be a 72 amph, which is 1 alot cheaper 2 a diffrent size so may not be very secure in the tray any help most welcome

I cannot say what battery is actually specificed for your 1.9 jtdm, but shops and replacement outfits commonly say a smaller battery to make them appear cheaper. Replacement batteries are very cost sensitive and they want your business so many under specify the size to cut costs.

Go with a direct replacement of the larger battery if that is what is already fitted. Bosch or Varta batteries are generally recommended and you could also check here for a accurate size (and a good source and delivered promptly).

I recently fitted a more powerful Bosch Silverline
- it is not so long but exact width and height of the old one.
That mneans the battery clamps work as intended.

Actually this is going to turn out to be a benefit
- as I intend to use the left over space at the front of the battery compartment for a little mod.
