    Hope someone can advise:
    I think my battery may be on the way out as the car wouldn't start after being stood for a while, but started easily off a jump start. Left the car idling for a while, turned it off, tried it again, and no problem, so assume it is charging.
    I have 2 questions:
    Firstly, and recommendation of battery, and what dimensions and specs it would need to be. Have seen the varta 017 battery locally and it seems good at £90
    Secondly, i don't know if the stereo is coded ( it is the built in navigation, tv, radio and tape unit linked to a cd changer. Is it liable to need a code after disconnecting the battery (as i am unable to find a code for it amongst the paperwork), and should anything else be backed up in some way before taking the battery off?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    pretty sure you would be looking at a 019 style battery, contact EURO CAR PARTS as they will be one of the cheapest suppliers

    Hiya, thanks. Posted it quite late, and had to sort it this morning. Got an extra heavy duty for £90, fitted fine, and starts better than ever!
