    I have an Elddis Sunseeker 100 Motorhome 2.2 Hdi Engine based on a Peugeot Boxer Chassis. It was first Registered December 2006.

    Without a lot of work taking the Battery out and disconnecting a lot of cables, I am unable to see the capacity of the Vehicle Battery and neither Elddis or Peugeot have been much help with my enquiries to them.

    Does anyone know the capacity of the Battery that I would need for the Vehicle Battery for this Motorhome - or does anyone have any guidance to the capacity of the Battery I should use - if you have no specific information for an Elddis Sunseeker 100.

    My Battery now doesn't hold any charge after running for some time - hence I need to replace to get back on the road. Hence I am unable to take to a Garage to replace.

    This is the most likely one.

    http://www.tayna.co.uk/Peugeot-LCV-Boxer-Diesel-Car-Battery-Rx1242.html

    or google battery type 019 100 amps

    measure length/width/height of battery and check against the tanya link
    the higher capacity battery of 950 amps cold cranking is a better option
    also remember to compare post layout is correct.
    Hope this helps

    Regards
    Steve

    Pappajohn is spot on!
    I fitted one of these on my 04 Boxer 5yr guarantee and I bought from Costco members warehouse because I know they will honour it without quibble.
    The original was a 90ah but 7 yrs old and probably not used much as had only done 8700 miles.
    This 100ah is about as big as will fit and a handy supplement to hab power with the help of a CBE BCM12 charge transfer module

    Sorry for bumping very old thread but I really can't seem to find this information anywhere.

    I see that you have changed Peugeot Boxer 2003-2003 battery and this seems to have exactly the same placement as my Peugeot Boxer 2003 Z has.

    How did you manage to remove positive clamp and remove the battery from the car? There doesn't seem to be any normal way to remove this as you don't have direct way to nuts and bolts. Is there some other way access battery from top perhaps?

    Would be really grateful if you explained this in layman's terms because this seems to most complicated battery problem I have had so far and I haven't seen any other car with such placement either.

    Remove the battery hold down clamps and pull the battery forwards, the cables should facilitate this. You can then access the positive clamp bolt and pull the fuse unit off the battery.
    ALWAYS disconnect the negative first
