Battery removal DS4 2l

Post by Ceenine »

Can someone please send me the instructions on the removal of the battery on my 2016 2litre model. It will save me going to night school on the topic. I think my next car will be a pre 2000 model of something without all the fandangos on this car.

There isn't a guide for this Don, the normal battery is shown below:

Just be careful you don't touch anything to do with the ultra-capacitor / Energy Accumulator battery for the stop start system (which should be hidden out the way somewhere behind the front left wheel arch if anything like the C5.

This is the standard guide I put together concerning battery disconnection / reconnection, but this is not an actual battery removal guide, more so to prevent electrical issues.

Thanks Marc, that is excellent help as always. All I need to do now is determine whether a Varta battery is worth the extra “hard earned”.

On an unrelated PSA matter, I watched a program on television this evening about a wooden bridge in North West Wales. A lovely part of the World.

Yes, it's just had about £30M spent on renovation and reopened in Feb., but still some work to do on the metal structure of the viaduct later on. It's about 90 miles form me.

I think one of my wife's 4th or 5th cousins was involved with the saving of that crossing some 40 - 50 years ago

Her Uncle Dick and Auntie Doy lived in Porthmadog and when I first met them some 30 odd years ago he showed me a trophy he had been given. It was a piece of original wood, polished up and it showed the huge holes that marine boring animals had made through the wood. They were about little finger diameter, say 1cm and it was obvious how much they would have weakened the crossing. He would have been Councillor Richard Williams officially.
