Just been over to halfords and bought a new batt mine was at 18% failed to start the car couple of times now and its had a new alternator thought id pay the extra 5 pounds and have them fit it and take the old one way, He only snapped the bolt on the clamp , fair enough it was rusted in he said its ok they go straight through to underneath the car il drill it through, Dont think you will mush the bolts dont go straight through at all im not taking it back how can i secure the batt in place now anyone ? also on the frme around the windows the end bit where the drivers door opens has fallen out has anyone a part number or accurate discription to order a new one cant get down the dealers to show them at the min

The plastic cap that sits in the metal trim doesnt come as a part on its own, you have to buy the complete window trim... And its expensive !!!! well over a £100

Halfords Heavy Duty CLK Battery - £120. Mercedes 100Ah Battery - £126, so about the same, but Halford is a 5yr Guarantee which is worth nothing because when it goes it goes and you are never going to find that receipt or be close to where you bought it!

I was in my Mercedes dealership recently and they were doing a 100Ah battery for less than £75.00

Photocopy receipt and stick it on the battery or next to it in a plastic envelope.
