Hi - Ive very recently bought an 05 plate T5 1.9tdi 104 bhp van. I will be fitting a Lucas sealed AGM 120Ah leisure battery - L 331 x W 172 x H 220mm. Could anyone give me their ideas on best place to install it please. Options I'm loolking at are 1) Thru Floor battery box thru the floor somewhere behind the passenger seat (still to inspect for clearance etc) 2) in the rear living space lockers (prefer not to loose the space or have long cable runs) 3) Under bonnet (no idea how until I look closer).

Anyone's experience/preferences would be apprectiated.

Thanks Nick.

VW originally puts the extra battery under the left front seat.

Hi

I got a 115AH Gel Battery 355mm long x 190mm high x 165mm deep. and fitted it under the drivers seat and made a sort of frame from the left over vohringer so it won't slide around.
