Yes i have one fitted to mine. Reason being i found that the original induction elbow was wearing itself away on battery. Then i fitted silicone elbow and still touching. So i went for Bosch Silver Top battery with shorter height. Can check part number tonight as can't remember at mo.

This is the reason why I was wanting a shorter/smaller battery....I've also thought about relocating in the boot as a few others have done...

relocation doesn't work for me as it a pain in the ass with wiring and also i have a family so need th eboot space. If it was track car then yes i would relocate no bother, but most likely behind passenger front seat

Thats where mine is on the track slag. On the 2.4 JTD I have fabricated a sunken battery box next to the spare wheel well. But this does mean I now have no room for a backbox, so need to straight pipe it.

this is 175mm high rather than 190mm...any good?
I just bought this from a l p h a batteries. It is 175mm high...type 100, 067 and 096 are all interchangeable, but slightly different sizes.

I left mine connected and standing for over three months, now the battery is totally discharged. Need to find an old fashioned charger and try to revive it as a spare.

charge it as slow as possible, a fast cahrge will most likely destroy it if fully discharged. but my feeling is once they have been left flat for anything longer than a week or so, the battery is permanently affected :(

My battery looks to have given up the ghost. It's always left on a trickle charger and starts first time. Took the car out on Friday and all was good, put it back in the garage on Friday night but didn't bother reconnecting the charger as I was planning to give it a wash over the weekend. Went out to it today and flat as a pancake!
Don't think anything was left on I've put it back on the charger but I fear it's had its chips.

When changing the battery is it simply remove old one and attach new one or is there anything I need to do or be aware of like is it ok to leave it without the battery for a few hours while I take the old one with me to make sure the new one is the same/correct type etc? Does anything reset or need to be reset?

Cheers

yeah fine to leave it without for as long as you want.. I think things reset after a few hours but wont effect anything long term.. I guess you know its better to disconnect earth first and reconnect it last..

And worth checking the earth cables for corrosion once the battery's removed and its easier to see.

Yeah disconnect negative first and re-attach last:thumbu p:

I'll clean the cables etc if necessary but to be honest they look fine. Never know it might be fine tomorrow but I doubt it!

So I fitted a new battery to the Gta today and as usual I always encounter something!
When I removed the positive terminal which has the 'fuse box' thing attached to it to make it easier I loosened two of the cables which go into the top of it just to make it easier to get the battery out. When I re-attached one of them (the thinner one which comes off the battery and towards the wing) I over tightened it that 1mm too much and heard a crack from under the little yellow plastic cover and when I restarted the car I got a 'No Connection' message and the ABS light stayed on. When I inspected under the little yellow cover I've snapped what I assume is a type of fuse for the ABS?
When I turn the nut back slightly and effectively touch it back together all seems well and no errors appear.
Is this a normal type of fuse I can get from a motor factors or is it a dealer part?

Cheers guys

It is a std MTA MidiVal fuse and the sticker on the cover should say it is for the ABS.
