  1. Also, the battery I just put in was a MAXX-49 850 CCA. This was the battery that matched up to my car while I was at Walmart on their computer. Is this OK or must I go back and pick up a MAXX-48?
  2. I just picked up the same battery for my 996. Is there a step-by-step DIY for the battery replacement? Just want to make sure that I have everything in order. Ryan: There are two methods: one that maintains power while you replace the battery (if you have the proper type of battery maintainer) and the other that doesn't . They are both covered on Mike Focke's website, here: http://sites.google....ocke2/batteries Regards, Maurice. I put in the new battery. Connected the vent. Then started the car. BUT The battery that I took out was a size 41-75 and 650 CCA. This new battery is a different size. When I go to secure the battery to the tray, I need to use the farthest hole. The problem is that the hole is too large and does not have any threads for the bolt that was being used previously. Can anyone help me with the size bolt that should be used so I can pick one up at Sears? Was the "old" battery the wrong size? I did notice that the car started much easier with the new battery.
