daihatsu hijet 993cc 1996 battery specs


I need to replace the battery in my hijet and currently have type 048 AH 40 Sae 325 Global and yuasa battery.

It seems very small for the battery compartment and I was wondering what the biggest battery was which I could fit as the current one seems to be a little weak under load (ie starting) even when it was new....any advice appreciated....

Hi jet battery

The average 048 40Ah is more than good enough although Varta's 048 is 45Ah.
Would the Charade diesel Type-088 68-70Ah fit, its L-255, W-175, H-195 mm (H-215mm to top of lugs)??
The 088 also fits the Rolls Royce Cloud!!!!!
Or the Fourtrak Diesel 250-type 80Ah, although you would need the Type-249 for the correct Lug layout, size is L-305, W-175, h-205mm (225mm Max). All sizes are approx but can vary from one make to another!!!
Try a Varta stockist for advice, their batteries are the best and always have a higher output.

Current- 04 Silver YRV TURBO / 91 Black Charade GTti.
Past- 89 White Charade GTti / 1998 1.3 Hi-Jet.

Thanks for the advice....much appreciated.
