My original Sirion battery died a week ago. When I took it to the shop the mechanic explained to me that the Sirion uses an expensive, dedicated small battery. He suggested installing a generic battery, which is physically larger, but significantly cheaper. This required sawing off parts of the battery carriage. I decided to go for it, hoping there wouldn't be any repercussions down the road.
* Does anyone have experience doing this?
* Could this be possibly harmful to anything else under the hood?
