This is the second battery installed in my 1996 discovery. It uses exactly the same clamping mechanism as the factory one just mirrored - J shaped bots and a bar across the corner of the battery.

Hi Boro,

Sorry it's taken so long but here you are (drivers/near side).

This is my 1996 300tdi (standard fitment) and pretty solid too!

I've seen the clamps here (click) will just need the rods. ;)

ATB,

Cheers guys, paul i found the bracket for across the top in the boot when i bought it and carefully stashed it away, the threaded rod nearest the front panel was in place but the other was not so i made one, is the top of the bracket straight in that pic or curved just on mine with it straight the stepped section at either end doesnt seat on the battery, may see if i can fiddle it a bit to fit

The bracket going over the top of the battery is flat (un-bent) and the only parts that touch the battery when clamped are the two clamping points (nuts) and the middle vertical tongue which presses down on the battery as you tighten.
