Battery brand, Yuasa is recommending workshops refer to its industry online trade lookup tool to avoid serious issues caused by incorrect battery application.
Battery replacement is no longer a simple task, the brand warns.
Fitting the wrong one to a vehicle can lead to damaging consequences, usually resulting in breakdown and a very short battery service life.
Most new models use next generation start-stop technology and are produced with a vast array of specification options.
Many will have additional auxiliary batteries to accompany the main starter unit.
Although there are many different lookup systems accessible to workshops, Yuasa says most cannot account for these multiple variables.
First launched in 2012, Yuasa’s trade battery lookup website is the original and most comprehensive solution available.
It accounts for all these different factors.
With fit.yuasa.com, users are guaranteed to find the exact battery on every occasion, helping technicians save valuable time and money, whilst boosting their own customer service and reputation.
