Just back from Halfords. What a bunch of spotty nosed clowns they are.
Whilst I was waiting to be served one of the spotty nosed erks split a number plate he was making. ....Apparently the 3rd one today. Then another spotty nosed erk decided to connect up the diagnostic meter to the battery the wrong way round. "What you doing" I said before he made the connection. "Your fitting the negative to the positive." ...... Then he carries on connecting it up the wrong way saying it doesn't matter. ... what a twat! So I pulled the lead off and suggested someone with training should probably be carrying out the test.
Anyway the test was carried out and is follows
Volts - 12.71v
Measured 449 EN(A)
Rating 550 EN(A)
Replacement advised.....after all that carry on, no surprises there
