There is probably a clamp down the side at the bottom of the battery to hold it in place

I need to replace the battery on my 2004 Audi TT. I removed the cables from the battery posts. I took off a bolt down the bottom of the battery that was holding a clamp that held the battery...


Sounds as if the battery has just stuck to the rubber gasket that it sits on, have you tried a bit of good old brute force? Try giving it a move from side to side and let me know how you do...

I have unscrewed the terminals but cannot remove the battery. do i need to loosen any else to be able to lift the battery out? audi is quoting an arm and a leg for a new battery. can i use aother...


Hold down clamps is the other item you must loosen and remove. . You must find out how many Cold Cranking amps(CCA) your car needs to start, thats the size battery you purchase. Make sure its top or side post and same physical size as possible as your old battery.

  1. Note the radio security code, and then disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle with jackstands.
  3. If installed, remove the lower engine shield.


NOTE The engine must be supported on 1990-97 Passat models as the starter mounting bolts also support the engine-to-transmission mounting surface.
  1. If necessary, label the small wires before disconnecting them.
  2. On 1990-97 Passat models:

  3. On Audi A4 and 1998-00 Passat models:
    1. Release the number 50 electrical connector from the starter.
    2. Then remove the nut for the large battery cable and remove the cable.
    3. Loosen then remove the clamp that secures the heat shield to the starter.
    4. Remove the fasteners securing the bracket at the front of the starter and remove the bracket.

  4. Remove the starter mounting bolts, while supporting the weight of the starter.
  5. Pull the starter straight out from the transaxle.

To install:

NOTE On vehicles with a manual transaxle, there is a bushing where the starter shaft fits into the bell housing. If the shaft or bushing is worn or if the starter has been jamming, the bushing should be replaced. There is a special bushing removal tool available but a small inside bearing removal tool is usually sufficient.
  1. Install the starter into the transaxle.
  2. Tighten the related starter motor fasteners as follows:
  3. Starter support bracket, M5 nut: 35 inch lbs. (4 Nm)
  4. Starter support bracket, M8: 16 ft. lbs. (22Nm)
  5. Battery cable to solenoid, M8 nut:10 ft. lbs. (13Nm)
  6. hydraulic hose support bracket, M8: 84 inch lbs. (10Nm)
  7. Starter mounting fasteners, M10: 44 ft. lbs. (60 Nm)
  8. Starter mounting fasteners, M12: 48 ft. lbs. (65 Nm)
  9. The balance of the installation is in reverse order of removal.


NOTE Be careful not to over tighten the battery cable connection. The metal is soft and the threads will strip easily.
  1. Lower the vehicle from the jackstands.
  2. Connect the negative battery cable and enter the radio security code.

My 05 tiburon battery was dying so i replaced it then my stereo stopped working its not the fuse is there a reset


Radio 'resets' automatically when power is removed -- so, since you replaced the battery, the time lapse between removal of the old battery and installation of the new battery automatically did it.

  1. Note the radio security code, and then disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle with jackstands.
  3. If installed, remove the lower engine shield.
NOTE
The engine must be supported on 1990-97 Passat models as the starter mounting bolts also support the engine-to-transmission mounting surface. If necessary, label the small wires before disconnecting them.

On 1990-97 Passat models:

  1. To support the weight of the engine and transaxle, install the engine support Tool Nos. 10-222A and 10-222A/1, or use a floor jack (with a block of wood on the chock) to support the engine by the oil pan. Do NOT jack the car by the oil pan under any circumstances! The floor jack is ONLY to support the engine while the starter is being removed. This is necessary because the bolts that secure the starter to the transaxle are also used to secure the front engine mount to the transaxle.
  2. Disconnect the large cable, which is the positive battery cable, from the solenoid.
  3. If equipped, remove the bracket that secures the starter to the engine. On Audi A4 and 1998-00 Passat models:

Release the number 50 electrical connector from the starter.

  1. Then remove the nut for the large battery cable and remove the cable.
  2. Loosen then remove the clamp that secures the heat shield to the starter.
  3. Remove the fasteners securing the bracket at the front of the starter and remove the bracket.

Remove the starter mounting bolts, while supporting the weight of the starter.

  1. Pull the starter straight out from the transaxle. To install:
NOTE
On vehicles with a manual transaxle, there is a bushing where the starter shaft fits into the bell housing. If the shaft or bushing is worn or if the starter has been jamming, the bushing should be replaced.

1999 Audi A4 Climate Control Removal/Installation


You have to remove the trim panel around the stereo/climate control to expose the screws that hold it in place. Once you do that, and the screws are removed, it pulls straight out and unplugs. No need to disconnect the battery and no tricks to it once it slides out.

There should be either an allen key or a 13mm head bolt holding the battery clamp at the front of the battery. If this is removed, it should come out ok with a shake. i would advise help to lift the battery out as it can damage your back due to the location near the bulkhead.
