Re: Battery Cover

Kennon, I don't understand this.  In July '94 I purchased a Sears
Group 41 battery for my '90 Coupe Quattro.  Sears installed it; the cover
just fine (took it off and on to check just before sending this message).

Battery info is that is stock # 22843241, a 60 mo. warranty unit.

If battery fits cleanly into tray, is bolted down properly (back of mine is
with firewall),  little clearance to firewall gasket for top of battery
don't understand problem.  Looking at my receipts, noticed a "Battery Pack";
 this might have been a new/different hold-down bracket
and sone new/different tubing for the battery vent (top back of battery,
with firewall, tubing runs to passenger side drain tube in firewall).  Part
no. for this "Pack" is 19021024; costs $2.99 back then.

Good luck!

 I just had my battery checked at Sears and it failed the load test as
 expected.  I went with a new Die Hard International series 41 which is
 as the proper replacement for the CQ and most other Audis.  The battery does
 fit in the tray, but the battery cover will not fit.  I'm concerned because
 the Owner's Manual says it's important to always have the cover in place.
 What should I do?  I guess I could return the battery and pay the extra $
 the OEM replacement.  However, if the cover isn't really needed then I'm OK.
