Recommended battery for 56 1.2 Grande?

Hey guys,

It's getting to that time. I've had the same battery in the Grande Punto since I got her in 2011 but I am now getting very choppy starts and the battery light showing a short while after ignition. Can anybody recommend a fairly priced battery to replace it with for my 1.2 56 plate Grande?

Thanks

I can't recommend one, but if you go to your local Halfords, they usualy have a flip chart of battery specs for various cars. Get the spec off the battery they recommend and then search online for the same spec. You're likely to need the overall external dimensions (which you can get off yours with a tape measure) and then the capacity in Ah (Amp hours) and the Cold Cranking Current in Amps (CCA).

For the small saving you'll make online though, I'd probably just take my battery round to my local motor factors and ask them what they've got that's equivalent.

I've just had to replace mine (2006 1.2). I bought one of these: http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/p/ac...023&0&cc5_1005 from ECP. If you use their "xmas" code it's just under 48
