A 14mm worked though. :ha:007 said:you removed the 10mm from the power steering not the brake fluid silly. and it's a 13mm in front of the battery. glad you got it back together, my blown tire ordeal made me hate vw's for the day.
Only if the battery goes dead and it sits for a few weeks. Do it with a VAG..OurFirstBug said:DO you need a vag-com to reset throttle on a 2002 1.8t when you change out the battery?
I am not sure what a 47-series battery is. But the Optima RedTop that I bought is a Group 35 battery, and it is perfectly sized for the factory battery box.Carphunter said:IF I understand correctly, a '00 NB 1.8 uses a 47 series battery, while the tdi's use a 48. I think I want to put in a 48, but was wondering if anyone knows if they all use the same battery box (or if I have to remove the box and put the battery in "bare".
edited....this can't be right....47 and 48 are 3" diff in length
