I had a dead battery the other day. In the process of servicing it, I noticed that my battery does not have a bracket holding it down, except for a "lip" at the bottom backside of the battery that sort of locks it into a groove to keep it in place.<p>Is my V70R missing a battery hold-down or is this the way all 70s are?<p><br>note to all: When you _think_ you have a dead starter, (click-click) always try jump starting first. 10V on a battery just isn't enough to even turn the starter.

Re: Battery hold-down? (R2 Rnot)

I recently replace my battery and on the tray in the front was a clip that slid along the front lip of the tray and then into a socket on the battery. It's hard to put into words, but when I was changing the battery, it fell thru the engine compartment- it's an easy item to misplace and not realize it.
