1.9 jtdm - which battery?

battery is pretty much dead on the 159 - can someone let me know what size replacement i need? and any recommendations too - dirt cheap is what i'm after, as the car is hardly ever used these days and will probably be getting sold in the coming months

It's a type 096.

Prices probably between 70-100.

A really cheap one might not have the cranking power but you might not be fussed in the circ's.

I was having starting problems with my 1.9 diesel 159ti and it was draining fairly quickly even though the battery diagnostics machine said there was nothing wrong with it once started.

Got a Bosch S5 008 nearly 18 months ago and no problems since, seems to be the business and with a 5 year guarantee. Supposedly these batteries are good for cars with lots of electrical goodies on and don't drain as quickly. Actually bought it for about 85 then my local Alfa garage fitted it for 15and disposed of the old one for me which I though was pretty good!
