Most of the emergency situations come when u have to replace flat tyres and/or dead battery. Knowing how to do it can save u day.

Do practice but always carry the required tools in the car all the time.

From time to time I also organise 'DIT' [do-it-together] sessions with 206, 308, 405 and W124 owners. Normally we 'DIT' on Saturday Morning.
Last Saturday we had DIT to replace 308 Brake disk and pads. PM me if u r interested to join.

salam uncle, great diy stuff as always. Please invite me whenever u're organising a DIT session again especially for 308, wud luv to join if time permits. we met few weeks ago at ks when i went for inspection.

considering the no.s of 308 that had their batteries replaced in less than a year of its age, i'm contemplating of keeping a spare in the car at all time, jus in case it went dead in d middle of no where. do u know what batt is compatible for 308 we can buy other than from sc? the stated Ah is 60, however according to zali ks, he had temporarily replace mine wt a 206 batt while waiting for replacemnt to arrived & i used it for nearly 2 mths. i dun know wat Ah is 206 batt but i wud presume is lesser. do u think a lower Ah batt can crank our engine? i saw the brandname of replacemnt batt they use is Varta, however a quick search on d net found no local supplier

A.H.Wan [uncle.D] said...

Hasnul,
Of course 206 batt has lower AH capacity but don't worry, I had even tried to crank Merc W124 2.3 liter engine w/o any problem.

U r welcome to my 'bawah pokok' workshop on any Saturday Morning from 9:30am. We can DIT [do it together] on simple maintenance. I have enough basic tools.

Pls let me know before hand.

shouldn't you disconnect negative terminal first when removing any battery ?

A.H. Wan said...

Yakubu... Correct and I don't disagree with you. Old school book also say so.

Unfortunately on Peugeot 308 THP you have to disconnect +ve terminal FIRST in order to remove battery jacket. Without removing battery jacket there is no way to disconnect -ve terminal.
