    Thanks Guru. I do know where the battery is, just needed to know what to undo to get the thing out as there's all sorts attached.

  • mandy139 Jan 01, 2009

    There's a kind of cartridge on top of the battery with four wures and three fuses attached, also there's a clamp. Was wondering how to undo the clamp as it's not obvious and whether the cartirdge with wires is detachable without undoing the wires....

First, you have to find the battery first.

its either in the engine compartment,
or underneath the driver's chair,
or at the passenger side,
or at the trunk.

if you found it, make sure you label all the wires that you are going to take out.
then remove the battery post, remove tha battery clamp,
then you can remove your battery.

    ok,

    so all the sorts that you are talking would be the wires from the positive and the negative cables.
    label each one so that in returning them, you won't be confused in returning each wire.

    Tnx 4 using fixya,

    the cartridge with fuses are bolted to a terminal post of the battery by a nut. then the clamp that holds the battery are secured by long bolts that are hooked under the flat surface where the battery seats. un loosen the nuts that are holding the battery clamp then remove the clamp, then you can remove the battery post with the cartridge in it.

My VW golf TDi won't start since I changed my battery. It started fine for three days and now there is absolutely nothing there when I turn the key not even a click. Please help


1. Do all lights, accessories, central locking system etc in the car all operate normally.

2. Have you tested to see if the car starts when you try jump starting from another vehicle.

3. What warning lights were displaying on the vehicle a day or 2 before you had the problem.

4. Were you having the same starting problems with the old battery that you have just replaced.

My battery went flat in my golf tdi (51) and now the central locking doesnt work, only opens the drivers door. any ideas??


you either need to:

Buy a new battery
or
Take the battery to a recharge center and ask them to remove the old battery water let it dry and test it if it can still hold some voltage. Replace with diluted acid with water as the battery is on the charge.

Check also if your car can still charge the battery coz that could be also the problem
