Re: Mega City car - premature battery failure

Thank you all for your advice. New batteries seem to be called for but I'm not sure I can justify the expense for 18 months and about 2000 miles of motoring.
I've heard conflicting reports about battery conditioners, are they worth giving a go?

Thanks and a Merry Christmas

Carl

Re: Expert battery advice needed - Aixam Mega City

Hi John The seats just slide forward after removing a screw in the outside of the seat , you'll need to remove the plastic cover. Then slide them forward, they can be a pig to put back, its easier if someone can help to line up the seat with the runners. The battery covers come off after removing th...

Re: Expert battery advice needed - Aixam Mega City
