Hi Guys,

Just a quick question about replacing the battery in my 1.9 as I'm a bit confused. My alternator died and stopped charging it and the battery needs replacing now, it's the original from 2006 and 105000 miles ago so it's done well.

Had a search through the forums and the Bosch s5 008 seems to come up a lot, but a few threads show that it's hard to fit. It's also rated lower than the original.

Will the S5008 fit and is it okay that it's rated lower? Also, any difference for 1.9 vs 2.4? Everybody's help would be greatly appreciated. The cheapest I've found is £86, good deal?

Thanks guys, this place is a mine of great information.

thanks

Thanks guys for the help. Apart from resetting the climate control, is there anything else I need to do?

From personal experience of having it break on me, whilst the battery is out have a check of the condition of the earth cable that goes between the engine/gearbox to the body, it bolts on underneath the battery.

No need to worry about the radio code,its saved in the body computer
