How to choose the correct car battery
So, your car battery has died… and you know that you need a new battery, but you can’t work out which battery that you need? This is the guide for you.
Step One - Check existing battery for any codes
You may find that your existing battery is printed with the UK part number. In most cases this is a three digit code such as ‘063′ or ‘096′. If you have this code then you have everything that you need in order to purchase a replacement battery. Simply type the code into our ‘Product Search’ box on the right hand side of any website page in the following format: ‘063 Car Battery’ replacing 063 with your part number. If you have the right code you should see the search results pop up in the centre of the page.
Step Two - Fitment Guides
If your current battery doesn’t have a UK part number printed, don’t worry. The first port of call in this situation is to check our excellent car battery fitment guides. The battery manufacturers provide us with a list of models that each battery may fit. The fitment is by no means a guarantee, but this should give you a good idea of which is the correct battery for your vehicle. Compare your current battery to the battery that our guide suggests in the following manner:
If the battery selected by the fitment guide matches all of these criteria, you have checked all that you need to to confirm that it is a suitable battery for your vehicle.
If the suggested battery does not match any of the above criteria, or your vehicle is not listed in our guides, you need step 3, the Battery Wizard.
Step Three - Our Car Battery Wizard
Our car battery wizard has been designed to take any information that you have about your existing battery and tell you what it is. You will need to have the dimensions, terminal layout and terminal type to hand before proceeding.
The wizard will compare the detail that you have entered to all UK batteries. The dimensions will be compared +/- 10mm which usually gives a result. If your search returns no matches, you are given the option to search +/- 20mm, then 40mm and so on until a match is found. If you still can’t get a match, you have either taken down your measurements incorrectly or selected the wrong terminal layout or type.
Once you have found the battery, again compare this to the data you have collected from your existing battery to confirm fitment.
We hope that you were able to follow this tutorial without any problems. Please send us feedback whether positive or negative by contacting us.
