Can I fit 73 or 77 Ah battery to 159 1.9 JTDm? When I checked the dimensions and the battery holder, it looked like it can fit. I am not so happy with the current one and I think it will start better with a bigger one.

Currently in the car: VARTA BLUE 60 Ah (242x175x190 mm)
I want to buy: TUDOR HIGH TECH 77 Ah (278x175x190 mm)

My biggest concern is will a bigger battery make an issue with the standard alternator?

Thanks in advance.

For starting, CCA is more important than Ah.

A good one in your current size will have 610CCA, what has yours got?

Yes, I am aware of that. My current one is 540 CCA and I think it is low. The TUDOR that I want to buy is 77 Ah and has 760 CCA.
