New Battery Needed. What should I get? - 159 2.2JTS
I have had numerous problems with the battery not behaving like it should and have come to the conclusion that a new battery is needed. The car is 8 years old and still has the original battery so no real surprise that it needs replacing.
I have resisted changing the battery until now partly because of cost but also because none of the new batteries look the same. In my 159 2.2 JTS it has a double sized battery with a flat top with the fuses etc. sitting on top of the positive terminal. I am a little worried about buying a new battery that either doesn't fit correctly in the whole or the positive terminal won't connect to because of the fuses. When I go on websites selling batteries, I enter the make and model of my car and only single sized batteries come up (I understand on the earlier 159's they used to take the single size) which doesn't fill me with confidence that I am going to buy the right one.
My question is whether it is possible to get the battery refurbished so that I keep the original battery case albeit with a new battery inside? If not, which battery should I go for that is a near match as possible?
Thanks in advance.
