    That was my thought when I raised the issue within 5 years. They deem after two years it’s wear and tear, just like the clutch and suspension components, they don’t have the full 5 year warranty either... no idea on oem manufacturer as it’s just a black box

    Hyundai battery warranty was only 2 years. Halfords recommended. I just went in and said my battery has died, can you fit me a new one... Popped back in this evening. Spoke with the assistant manager. Showed him what was what. He searched for the battery based on my reg. came up with the same one they fitted. Then he noticed (after I pointed it out) it said EXL stop/start in very small text!! he’s getting back to me after he’s spoken with his boss. He’s not sure of the way forward from here... they’ve fitted the wrong battery and in doing so broken a bit of my car, likely only fixable via Hyundai. Halfrauds fix has got me on the road but, to quote the bloke today, it’s killing the battery they’ve installed. I’m sure it’ll be get it fixed and bill them... more hassle... interestingly, they say they don’t stock a battery for a stop/start i40, but I can see it on their website!!! AGM 096. I wonder if it needs ‘programming’ in to the ecu (as I’ve read some do) and they don’t have the necessary kit? Oh well, I’ll see what they say and carry my jump starter with me!!

    Can’t disagree with hindsight definitely don’t have time for this...
  6. 18" Premium alternative tyre size

    Now positive they've fitted a standard 030 battery (for non stop/start) instead of an AGM 096 !!! no wonder they had issues!
  7. 18" Premium alternative tyre size

    I get the stop/start is deactivated message all the time. But then my stop/start hasn’t worked for years!! i know there’s a great long list of criteria that needs to be met in order for it to actually work and I seem to recall one of them is temperature?
  8. 18" Premium alternative tyre size

    The more I look into this I think they have fitted a not start/stop battery to my bluedrive buggering up the terminal in the meantime and just getting me back on the road and out the door. I could really do without this right now...
  9. 18" Premium alternative tyre size

    No, not higher overall, just the step in the terminal block meant they couldn’t get it fully on to the terminal and so it wouldn’t tighten properly. They applied brute force and sheared this bolt off that pulls the clamp closed. (A bit of an odd design though, I must say, never seen one like it before) not sure if it’s replaceable as a stand-alone part. Not looked as it’s now dark and -6c!!! I’m sure the battery I have is the same one that you posted the specs to...
  10. 18" Premium alternative tyre size

    Thanks. Halfords recommended that battery I linked to, but couldn’t get it to fit nicely due to that step (I know, I should have done it myself, especially after my success at the oil change. But it was -2c and we have 4” snow still!!). They managed to shear off one of the bolts in the terminal block and have got me back on the road with a bit of a Heath Robinson fix. It works and is secure, but it isn’t pretty. Considering a complaint.

    @Westkent I assume it is this one? http://www.halfords.com/motoring/bulbs-blades-batteries/car-batteries/yuasa-5-year-guarantee-hsb030-silver-12v-car-battery How is the fit for you on the positive terminal? The terminal block has an odd step in it to cater for the shape of the OEM battery. Any issues at all?

    So, finally got around to doing mine today. Bloody overfilling dealers. I knew it was about 1/4” above max, always has been, whenever I got it back Extracted this much with the pump, including the bit left in he filter housing. I reckon it’s about 5.8 litres. 4.5 litres to max, ran the engine for a bit, topped up to use all the 5 litre bottle. Sitting just on max on the dip stick. Next time I reckon it’ll take me about 20 mins...
  13. I40 coolant loss

    This is the key thing. I had a similar amount of loss and it was a weeping seam on the radiator that only opened up when the radiator was hot teplaced under warranty

    I’ve ordered an OE filter and the Quantum oil you linked to on the other thread. Which may cause me an issue as that’s 5l lol. I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. I’ll let you know how I get on...
  15. Terry

    Go on then. Pump ordered. So I just stick one of those plastic pipes down the dip stick hole and pump it out? Fill up with a can of new and stick the old oil into the new (now empty) oil container and take it to the recycling centre?
