Hi.. my Touareg’s battery has also come to the end of its life and I am thinking of taking the Job on myself. I have read the whole thread and searched elsewhere on the website to find the correct battery size to buy. Mine is a 2006 Touareg 3.0 TDi V6. Can anyone help with the size chart?

i can concur the instructions given on these posts work well and will allow you to change your passenger seat battery with ease.
Used a spare battery during the process connected to the under bonnet battery points so no loss of settings or random sensor warnings.

the first time i noticed the battery was starting to go was when the time kept on resetting every time i hadn't driven the car for a day or two.

Just in passing the battery i took out was a Varta original with a date on the negative terminal post showing a date of week 49 2005. 12 years of service was excellent i'd say.

can anyone clear up on just one issue please. There was a clip on the main cable which i believe should have connected to the seat frame but for me it just wouldn't reach.
Is this connection important? It was only cabled tied to the fabric covered cable.

Thanks as always to MyTrek and all its contributors.

No idea on the clip but 12 years is, I think, the best battery life span reported thus far?

Been having problems with random, multiple sensor faults recently and thought I’d check the battery as I’ve seen a few threads suggesting the electronics are sensitive to dying batteries even before starting problems develop. Got a Varta I1 ordered from Battery Megastore delivery tomorrow. Tipped the seat up today in preparation as I don’t need to use the car at the moment (we have a fleet of four when the kids are at home). Must say the pointers above make it a very straightforward process - thanks to all for the info.

I do want to put forward a candidate for Britains oldest treg battery - original fitment 05/07 - no wonder it was getting a bit shaky! I think it deserves a long peaceful retirement. Hopefully the replacement will sort out the sensor problems.

GOOD NEWS:

They've put the Generation 3 T5 battery in an accessible spot!

It's in the floor in front of the driver's seat on RHD cars, passenger seat on LHD.

See the picture in post #26:

It also means the jump posts in the engine bay are now in the rear left corner as you look at the bay when standing in front of the car.

Thanks to member fka for the info and pix.
