i ended up going down the mercedes route with my golf, thier batteries are made to ridiculously stringent specs as the can system in them is so sensitive, like doc i fitted the rigid battery box, looks so much better and not expensive from vw either i think i was circa £40 for the 3 parts

On a 2011 caddy 2l tdi do most people use a 096 battery? Different sites keep telling me different batteries

Doc wrote:Hi Alex,
I have a 096 battery in my Caddy and it fits the tray but not the soft cover.
I have fitted the ridgid battery box found on the earlier Caddys and golfs.
I plan to change my battery to the 096 as you guys have done so, as I believe it's on the way out, I've also had a new genuine alternator fitted due to bearing noises..

Any chance you could give me part numbers you used for the box in your caddy?? 3 parts so you say

Also just wanna make sure it will fit in my 1.6 2011 facelift 1.6 caddy 105bhp??

Thanks in advance

Have a look at Tayna batteries website if you're buying. Excellent service from them and quality batteries, not the usual crap from GSF or ECP. I just recently got a 096 Enduroline 78Ah after constantly suffering with battery drain during winter, that despite previously having a new battery from GSF. I've not suffered with any issues since fitting the new one. £80 I think I paid, well worth it.

It is a bigger sized battery si I'm interested if the battery boxes fit the larger size?

That's well priced!

Why did you choose that over the bosch one?

I want something that is juicy, won't let me down and will fit! Lol

Good price that Tommy, I cannot find one cheaper than that online.

Dont suppose you could help me with the part number for the rigid battery box?

Also which battery did you use?

Battery box
Trim - 3C0-915-335
Trim - 3C0-915-336-A
Cover - 3C0-915-443-A

They are the same as Golf and you can get Chineses ones off eBay for about £10
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is

Thank you

Very much appreciated

Think I found the link online aswell:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Battery-B ... ctupt=true

This above link is NOT GENUINE but a good aftermarket so the seller say.

Will check with TPS though now and get this sorted

Thank you!!

Ill post on this page how I get on.

The Bosch 096 and the 096 Enduroline (the one which you have) are the same size from what I can see.

I opted for the Bosch, and I will will speak to TPS tomorrow to get the box so will keep you posted how it goes

From the previous members replies, all should go all ok
