    Thanks for coming back to us. Which battery did you get. Most come with a blanking plug which must be removed before fitting.
    Glad you got it sorted and it was good of the samaritan to take the trouble to help.

    I got this one. https://www.gsfcarparts.com/971aa0191 The battery is £200 but i found a code that mean't i only had to pay £80

    Yes the old white plastic part is in my old battery. But the sellers have told me most new batteries don't need them anymore. So the rubber tube that was connected is just hanging loose. I don't even know what the piece is called and can't find it on google to buy one. A bit like the piece I always have left over when i try to put together a flatpack

    OK...

    The tube is called a vent tube.

    Is there a small hole in the new battery with a (usually red) cap in it and a caution label saying it must be removed when fitting the battery?

    If so then it's needed.

    You can use any piece of small hard plastic tube or elbow that fits to connect the vent tube. It takes any vapour or boil-over electrolyte out through the bottom of the car.

    Glad it's sorted, these coincidences mess us up.

    If there's anything I can do my offer still stands, so please pm me.

    Thank you I will. I'll check the battery in the morning because I didn't check it for a cap before I fitted it.

    Good to hear you got the problem sorted. If you find some things on the attached list aren't working follow the instructions on the link. When I changed my battery I didn't need to do all the resets. Also, is the new battery clamped in ok?

    B loody hell, that's an expensive battery and I'm sorry to say that IMO the lady has been ripped off.

    The battery will have a blanking plug for the vent tube, just pull the plug out and push the vent tube in. Job done.

    It's OK Vic, that was the "list" price. It's called psychological preparation.

    She paid £80.

    I don't know the brand but it's got 3 years' warranty so it's average quality too, not bad.
