I’ve lost the hold-down bracket for my battery. It’s sitting in place so do I still need to clamp it?

If your battery is left loose, engine vibrations can cause it to lose power. It could also leak and damage your engine, parts or paintwork. In some cases, a loose battery could even short out and cause a fire or explosion in your engine.


Make sure your battery is properly secured with hold-down brackets and clamps as outlined in your manufacturer’s guidelines.
