Removing battery



  • hi, my V6 is now parked up until I sell it but typically the battery is down on charge. i want to charge the battery and condition it in the house but I cant get the damn thing diue the strut brace. Will it be ok to remove the brace and leave in the boot until the battery goes back in and is it a doddle to remove?



  • Yep it will be fine! They're an optional part.



  • Just a tip If there is any sort of corrosion on those top nuts give it some penetrative spray soaking before undoing, last thing you wanna do is snap those top studs> trust me I've been there, although I was doing them up at the time….



  • Done today thanks, a doddle. Tip taken for when doing nuts up.



  • I have a spare botsch battery if you wanted to replace yours, hardley used, about 2 months and specific to mx-3 size wise. £20 plus delivery, but its quite heavy and £60+ brand. One of the best batteries you can buy IMO :mrgreen:



  • thanks for your offer, however i dont want to spend any more money on car except MOT if its still there in the summer. Im bench charging in the house up to that point, it should be fine. Never had any bother with it before, went flat cos no use
