The battery is one of the most important components of a car. Peugeot car batteries provide the power needed to start a car’s engine, while also providing power for the lights, radio, and all the electronics in your vehicle while the alternator isn’t running. Your Peugeot battery will degrade over time, though, and need replacing. Before disposing of your old batteries, be sure you make a note of its size and other specifications for easier reference when buying a new unit. In this article, we’ll guide you on how to find a genuine battery replacement for your Peugeot car battery. Listed below are some of the places you might buy genuine car batteries from.

how to install a Peugeot car battery

1. Physical stores

Sourcing a battery from a physical store is probably the most common way of buying a replacement battery. Most people prefer buying items from bricks-and-mortar shops, especially if they need a new battery in a hurry.

2. Auto repair shops

If you aren’t that experienced in installing batteries and want a professional to do it for you, heading down to an auto repair shop or garage to have your battery replaced is a good idea. That saves you the time and trouble you might otherwise have when trying to remove the old unit and installing the new one correctly.

It’s worth noting that as a car owner, it’s a wise investment of your time to learn something about car batteries in any case, because they will last longer with proper maintenance, unless you opt for a maintenance-free battery. Knowing a bit about your car’s batteries is also helpful in case of emergencies or breakdowns.

If your old Peugeot 207 battery has died, it’s too late to drive to the nearest garage for a replacement, so it’s always worth paying attention to the warning signs and aiming to have the old battery replaced before it gives out completely.

3. Online stores

Another way of buying a genuine Peugeot 206 car battery, say, is by ordering it online. Online shopping is a very attractive prospect, especially at the moment with all the disruption to services with Covid-19 still around. As well as being able to buy new car batteries from the comfort of your own home, you can also browse to your heart’s content and make your decision on which to purchase in your own time. When buying a Peugeot battery online, make sure you check the cost of shipping, because that can significantly add to the cost when buying bulky items like batteries.

There are a few downsides to buying from an online store. You won’t be able to physically see whether the battery you’ve chosen will fit your car’s specific model. You can avoid this by checking your car’s manual or your existing unit to find out the ideal dimensions for your new battery.

How To Maintain Car Batteries

Your vehicle battery plays a unique role in your vehicle because it stores the electrical energy required to start the ignition and powers the car’s electrical system to keep it running. If you want to maximise your battery’s service life, it’s important to maintain it throughout. To do this, make sure you clean the battery of any corrosion regularly; tighten up the hold-down bracket when necessary; use an insulated battery cover; maintain the fluid levels if your unit is unsealed; and make sure the battery is charged properly.
