I asked if a larger capacity battery could be fitted when mine failed and was told it's not possible due to the tight fit of the current one. More capacity means a larger battery and there isn't the space. :(

Today I got a Bosch S6 AGM battery with 70 Ah in my Civic. I doubted it was possible because of it´s size, but everything worked out fine. No more flat battery :D

Hi Notso

You did it yourself,or need some modifications from service garage.

Doy you have some picture.

My honda service garage tell me thet this is not possible,and if it is possible it is very,very,very good for our underpowered 45ah battery.

I have a Hydronic 5 vehicle heater in my car and the original battery was simply to small for that.

It is not a problem at all to install a bigger battery like Bosch 6001 AGM. It is a little lower and you need to lift the battery an inch or so. I used a rubbermat to place under the battery, but you can use what you find suitable.
I bought a batteryholder designed for the Civic diesel, but Im not sure it's necessary.

You're welcome.
If you dont lift the battery an inch or more there will not be enough space for the positive battery terminal.
I used the batteryholder from the diesel Civic, but I think that the original holder can do the job.

Hi it is me again

Does holes for fixing batteryholder for civic diesel are same holes like on civic petrol 1.8 ,just replace it and that is thet.

Dou you have honda part number for batteryholder for civic diesel and what is price for thet.

If i can put bosch s6 on batteryholder for civic diesel, then i can put every battery in bosch s6 dimensions,because price for bosch s6 is a very high and thet battery is very powerfull and strong quality and it is AGM.

Thanks again

You can use any batteryholder from any car with a battery in that size, buy an used cheap from a parts specialist. Distance between the holes should be approximately 190 millimeters.

Hi

I call my honda garage for battery holder for civic diesel and they told me:

It is from 3 parts

1.batteryholder............18 euro

2.Long Bolts (2 pcs).......6 euro each

3.Bracket for fixing two long bolts and battery......9 euro

I assume thet if you have used honda batteryholder for civic diesel thet maybe it is best for installing a original honda part.

I used the battery holder for the civic diesel, but I had to cut it and drill 1 new hole, because it was too long. Thats why i told you, that you maybe could find a battery holder from an other car that would fit better without having to cut it.

Or go for one of these battery tie downs ? : battery tie down - Google претрага

The Petrol models will only accept a Bosch S4, not an S6, without changing the battery holder ...

Thanks alot for the info in this very valuable thread xenon and Notso! :p
This thread is just what I needed right now at this very moment, as my standard battery is completely flat and has gone into the sunset for good.
It was accidentally discharged last summer due to an electric cool box and has never recovered after that.
So thanks to you guys I will now install a 70 ah battery just like Notso did. Never thought I could fit a large battery like that in such a cramped place as under the bonnet of the Civic...:thumbsup:

Found it!
Unfortunately the link is only in norwegian, but I think you get the idea. (Google translate? :))
Here is the battery that I'm going to provide my civic with!
The Sønnak Superline 70 ah battery measures L 270 x W 173 x D 222 mm vs Bosch S6 L 278 x W 175 x D 190 mm. Hopefully this means that I don't have to put something underneath it in order to get it higher up, as the Sønnak is approx. 3 cm's (very close to the inch or so that Notso mentions) higher than the S6. I think it is a perfect match for my spaceship! Also, I don't think the price is bad for a quality battery like this. Just over 1 K NOK fitting included! But the even better part is that I save almost 1000,- NOK as well - if one shall believe everything the advertising says...:D
