How Is The Battery Secured In?

Recommended Posts

Got my t-sport a few weeks ago now. Just wondering if anybody can post any pics on how the Battery is secured?

Mine can just slide about, it has nothing holding it secure.

Does anyone know how much the black plastic covers are to cover the top bit of the engine? (Maybe 'leepulsar' knows if he reads this!).

Thanks alot...

If you excuse my little fuseholder which sits on it, the bar underneath is part of the Battery clamp, which holds the Battery in place.

You don't really need the negative Battery cover as such, it's more the postive Battery cover you really need, incase anything makes contact with it and earths with anything metal.

Nope, it's 4AWG size cable from maplins

Much cheaper than the main branded named stuff you can get
