As other reviewers indicated, this is NOT an exact fit replacement...at least for the 2014 nissan sentra 1.8L I just put it in. The plastic bracket that comes with this does not fit under the hold-downs. When you remove the bracket, the hold-downs are then too long and not threaded down enough. I used a couple of plastic bushings I had laying around on the hold-downs to compensate for this void and made it work. I shouldn't have had to do this on a brand-new 'exact fit' battery.

        A:

        Hi Jo, I'm glad to assist you! The average car battery lasts somewhere between two to five years, but there are ways to extend its lifespan. The lifespan of your car battery depends on where you live, how frequently you drive short distances and how often you keep your gadgets plugged in. This Automotive Battery - Part No. 26R-2 has a one year free replacement warranty if it fails due to a defect in materials or workmanship under normal use and service after proper installation.

    • Q:

      Are the terminals as shown in the picture correct (not reversed)?

      A group 26R battery should have the positive terminal on the right-hand side (when the terminals are closest to you)... like the Autocraft Silver 26R-3 battery.

      What is a "top height adaptor" for a battery?

      • CUSTOMER CARE

        A:

        Happy to help you with that question Go To guy. A battery top height adapter is a square plastic spacer or adapter that goes on top of the battery so that the battery will fit in the carrier properly and the hold down will keep the battery secure and so that the battery does not jounce.

      • CUSTOMER CARE

        A:

        With reference to your inquiry on the Economy Battery, Group Size 26R, 540 CCA - part# 26R-2, the average life span of a battery is about four to five years after that you are on borrowed time. However, this depends on the climate and weather conditions you are living at. If you live in a climate that has severe hot or cold temperatures, it shortens the life span of your battery. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

    • Q:

      Does this come with a warranty?
      Asked on 12/15/2012 by Aunti Sissi

      1 answer

      • CUSTOMER CARE

        A:

        Yes, this Economy Battery, Group Size 26R, 540 CCA part# 26R-2 has 1 year free replacement warranty. Free Replacement Period begins the day of purchase and expires at the end of the Free Replacement Period printed on your original sales receipt. This period does not renew when the battery is replaced during the Free Replacement Period. If the battery becomes defective after the Free Replacement Period and prior to the end of the warranty period, the warranty benefit will be prorated and can either be credited toward the purchase of a new battery or refunded at our option. The proration amount shall be determined by dividing the purchase price by the number of months of the warranty period, then multiplying the result by the months remaining in the warranty period. Partial months are rounded to the nearest whole month. Installation of an automotive battery in any other type of vehicle or equipment voids your warranty. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.
