Hi, So just measured my battery tray yesterday making sure new battery will fit, there is like a case covering half the battery on positive side of battery. What do I do with this? will it fit in new battery? also has cables etc inside it?

wow ... yes do this .... and don't forget to grease your brake discs


but seriously, that is probably a fuse board and you should be able to disconnect it and reconnect it to the new battery.

pics would help

Not been following the battery issue, what is the reason that you want a different one? Might help if you're planning a system to have a list of bits and what they're going to draw.

I normally use the battery from a diesel variant, that way they will fit and are normally a lot more powerful

Well I don't think battery is 100% and I have a sub amp and last week when I went to change bulbs(fog) and left them on to see if were better than previous ones, battery went dead and car couldn't start. I don't wish to keep car on every time I stop play music and have a fag and feel safe it wont go dead if I do. Also when too many things are running interiror lights flash etc, doesn't feel it can cope.

old battery is like 360CCA and 50Ah new one is 750CCA and 74AH.






Also a garage said theyl charge me 30 to fit because they need to keep a positive charge so codes don't go is this true?
