    removing the battery

    my car sometimes steams up inside when its raining mainly, so i was guessing that there maybe muck block the drian under the battery etc.

    but before i disconnect battery is there anything to be aware of before i start.

    its not going to effect the car disconnecting it is it?

    i have the radio code is there anything else?

    Not at all, the only thing i will say, after reconnecting the battery, switch on the ignition without starting the car for a min to allign the throttle body first, job done

    Also you will need the code for your stereo when you turn it back on.

    When I replaced my battery with a Bosch one, it was much smaller, so I had to get a different sort of clamp from the dealer. The old battery, which was the original one from the factory, was huge so it had this L-shaped clamp. I got this smaller clamp which I believe is used on petrol models (mine is a diesel) - put I just went to the dealer and he found the part on ETOS.

    If you are having steaming-up or smell issues you should also replace the pollen filter and spray some anti-bacterial spray in the air-con.

    And watch you don't drop the battery on your engine
