Adapter kit?

When the steering wheel was first put into use in automobiles, it was called the whip. The term has now been generalised to classify any automobile.

It's 2 bits of plastic that clip in underneath battery to raise it and allow the golf battery clamps to hold it securely  and stop it moving.

I managed to order 2 kits by mistake when I got my Bosch.

075 is the biggest we can fit, right?

It says it would on my reg but it does seem on the large size.  Would definitely measure it.

I'm a skinflint so got the 063 but I think most people recommend the 075 especially for the power hood - mine has been fine thou. Car had been sat for 6 weeks and it cranked it no bother.  Incidentally Euro took about a week for their next day delivery.

063 is half price at minute but Euro's "sales" do appear to be perpetual like DFS's

I fitted an 075 Yuasa from www.tanya.co.uk they were cheaper than Euro/GSF. It's black with red, which matches the rest of my car.
