Battery Rating?

Has anyone got the specs of the Battery for a 2007 2.2 D4d please?? . The original one is starting to play up and needs replacing but I'm buggered if I can find the ratings in the handbook and the Battery itself (FB Hi-Dash make) doesn't have it printed or stamped on either that I can find. ;)

Being a diesel, go for the physically largest Battery which will fit the holder/compartment, and which has a high CCA (cold cranking amperage) - a minimum of 600A, and preferably 800A+. Rating in Ah (amp-hours) is less important, but you should go for 75Ah plus. Be careful that the + and - terminals are in the right corners!

Stick to a well-known brand. Halfords own-label are reported to be reliable, and so is Yuasa (original fitment to many diesel vehicles). Expect to pay around £90 in the UK.

Hope useful.

i only managed to find a couple of alternative replacements for my 2006 t180, in the end i went with a varta blue 830 cca. I think it was G7, but without checking i am not going to say 100% for sure. I tjink some sites may have suggested G8 which has the terminals the oppisite way round.

Ta for the replies, I just found it strange that the handbook as far as I could see makes no mention of specs and the original Battery has no markings at all, I was just trying to make sure I wasn't palmed off with something under the OE ratings. bought a Varta G7 95ah 830cca and fitted it today it's the same measurements as the OE one and so fits in the protective casing snugly.

830CCA, Mick? Look out for sneaky jump leads going from under your car to ten of yer neighbours' cars, mate.
