Battery

Postby viewsonic1 » Sat Jan 05, 2019 5:04 pm

Sorry for being so lazy! Where's the best place to source a battery for the Minor? Only Moss out of the Big Three seem to sell them online.
Thanks.

Personally, I wouldn't dream of buying a battery from a Morris Minor specialist. A local motor factor will surely be able to help you? Have a look at the thread under electrics for some tips on battery size/fittings/availablity

Thanks for this ManyMinors. It's a while since I bought a battery for any car let alone a classic. I need to bring myself up to speed so I will look at the thread you suggested. Thanks again.

Europarts has always been good for me. Its local and if you preorder it you can take advantage of significant online discounts.

Just had a bosche battery fail after 3.75 years on a minor of its 4 year guarantee. It was exchanged with no quibble.

I am sure there are others like it. My experience would suggest you can get a better price by preordering

Tayna batteries https://www.tayna.co.uk/ have always given me good service at a good price. No connection with the company other than a customer..... They don't list a particular battery for a minor but have a very clear selection process on size, Ah etc

Regards

Ian
