Default S60 2005 D5 battery spec

Hello,

Does anyone know what the standard ah and cca battery that goes in the 2.4 diesel?

Currently the car takes a while to turn over and start - looks like the battery is going as it drops to under 11v when cranking the engine

Thanks

Cameron

As above.
Varta/Bosch/Yuasa are the best. Volvo are great too, and Exide.

I have 95/800 volvo battery on mine, new 2 years ago (I bought car last may, or Id have got Varta) starts fine but not enthusiastically, would not want any less cca! The Yuasa top-end battery has 900cca!

Btw www.tayna.co.uk cannot recommend highly enough.

Put a yuasa 900CCA on my v70 a few weeks ago as the old one expired. Spins over really quickly now. Cots about 130 from Halfords.

Thanks for the replies! The battery is struggling to start the car most mornings now.

Out of the following, what would you recommend?

Exide - 80ah/700CCA 67

Exide - 85ah/800cca 78

Yuasa - 95ah/850cca 89

Yuasa - 100ah/900cca 106

Thanks,

Cameron

Either of the Yuasa. Exide are good, when theyre good, but have a higher percentage of faulty batts. If budget is king the bigger exide should be ok, but for a tenner more, get the Yuasa, its a different league. The smaller yuasa will be more than adequate.
