    My battery isn't secured properly, what should be securing my battery to the car? Anybody know what the part number is? I need to get this sorted.

    Cheers

    Beyond that, you need to take your battery out and see whats missing, it's probably just the bolt.

    If nothing is missing, you need to loosen the bolt, then straighten it up, so it looks like it's standing up/leaning back. You can tighten it up and if it's at the wrong angle/position by 2-3mm, it will not secure the battery.

    Had same problem, some non oem batterys are incorrectly sized and simply will not tighten down without a spacer between the clamp and lip on battery i used a 3mm long allen key and slid it between clamp and lip then clamped that down on to battery to get the extra i needed so clamp would engage! Doesnt move at all anymore!
