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.

Comments about AutoCraft Automotive Battery, Group Size 26R, 540 CCA:

Car starts as it should with a new battery. The negative battery terminal was too small for the clamp I had on the lead so it required an additional trip to get a lead shim to get it to clamp tight.

      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.

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Happy to assist with your question Mike! We got in touch with a local store and verified with the terminals facing you the positive terminal will be on the right and negative terminal on the left.

  • Q:

    What is a "top height adaptor" for a battery?
    Asked on 1/17/2015 by Go To Guy from Brookfield

    1 answer

    • 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.
