Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Car Model: '06 9-3 Aero convertible.
Having just bought an '06 Aero convertible, I think I'm going to fit a new battery ready for the upcoming winter. Can anyone tell me if an 096 will fit OK please? ECP list an 027 as well - other places just list the 027 - but the 096 is 36mm longer, so I'm wondering if there's room for it.

Pete

The 110 type battery is slightly lower capacity, and has a bit less height, but is otherwise exactly the same.
