Hi Guys and Gals

Ive just bought a strutbrace of Strutbracer on ebay, im having a slight problem though.

I went outside today to basically see if the strutbrace is gonna fit, and the answer is gonna be no.

On the right hand side i would have to remove the battery alltogether or lose about and inch and a half from the height of the battery to get the strutbrace to fit.

Has anyone else had this problem or got any suggestions for what i can do, i.e new smaller battery, relocate battery, stamp my feet and cry :(

I would have post pictures but i have no camera

Yeah i tried all the different ways you could possibly have it, and the one way that it looks like it should go perfectley is blocked by my battery.

I think i might relocate the battery to the boot and run all the wiring back there, saves me having to water proof it in this sort of weather where every puddle i go through the battery warning light comes on :(

This is weird mate. Is it definately a strut brace for a Corsa B, and also check your battery is secured properly. Theres nothing else i can think of.
