Battery type and removal

Hello everyone my wife's 2013 V40 R Design requires a new battery, can any one here tell me what type of battery I require i.e. Brand name and specs and how to remove it and replace with the new Battery?

  • Battery specification should be listed in the owner’s manual. I know it is for my C30. Make sure you get the correct size as the previous owner of my C30 got one that’s a fraction too narrow so I had to stick a thin piece of plywood in to ensure it was tightly held down. Removal and replacement should be fairly straightforward, but I know on the C30 there’s a chassis cross brace that needs to be removed. Show us a photo of your engine bay and we can assist with that.

    I run Odyssey batteries in all my cars. They're a lot better than other stuff i've used over the years.

    Odyssey is expensive and other batteries last just fine on a daily driver. Delkor are up there with oem silver plated internals.

    I'm sure it's still $200+ on a $400rrp battery.
  • I usually run optima batteries in my cars

    Couldn't kill my optima red top!
    Years of abuse then many cars later it wasn't happy, confirmed dead cell/s by battery test place. Not that expensive in this case scenario...
