    zaf B car battery - warranty and replacement?

    HI

    The battery inb my 2 year old Zaf B 1.9 CDTI 150 looks like its dead. Secomd time in 2 months I have come back to it and there is no charge to turn over the engine - just enough for alarm etc, and this is after long runs. Putting in a charge seems to hold it for a few weeks so seems its slowly discharging.

    So, question, anyone know the warranty on the std vauxhall batteries in the zaf to see if I can get it replaced under warranty?

    Secondly, if I have to replace the battery myself, anything I should be aware of? Thinking what wont work on putting in a new battery eg radio etc or is there a trick to keep to allow power to the car while I repace it?

    3 years on the warranty but you got a right challenge to get it replaced by them. I had a right saga with my bus and the battery from new, paid for a new one after 2.5 years as was fed up with 8 garage visits and every time them telling me there was nothing wrong. Been perfect since fitting the new one though
    Be Happy
