timmers_uk Posted March 25, 2020 Share Posted March 25, 2020 Hi all, Appealing to the brain trust here before I go nuts stripping the trim on the alphard. I need to replace the aux battery on my 1st Gen Hybrid, as the poor old thing barely gets up to 11 volts. However I've struck a silly issue. Where the heck is it hiding! I thought I was all prepared as I have the dismantling guide (https://www.crown-motors.com/tch/corpinfo/RBRP/images/Hybrid Vehicle Dismantling Manual for ATH20 - Alphard HV.pdf) but I see now its for the 2nd gen, and when I go looking in the place I'd assumed was the aux battery location on the LHS, there's nowt but a small electrickery box, and on the RHS, I foresee 'fun and games' of trim removal to get to what's behind that grill, which I find puzzling if that's where the aux battery is. If someone could help out a puzzled fellow alphard owner, and point me in the right direction, that'd be great. Tim p.s. This - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Yuasa-YBX5005-Performance-Starter-Battery/dp/B00KNQT7FU seems to be the preferred replacement battery if I'm googling successfully, as the hits I get based on the EPC part number are all for Australian sources (e.g. https://www.centurybatteries.com.au/resources/battery-finder/product/battery/s55d23r/info) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
