Default Flat battery

Hello. Can anyone advise what the original Peugeot OEM battery is for a 308 1.6hdi 92bhp 2010. I've done some research and think it's either 027 or 096 which are different sizes.

What battery would you recommend? There are 440cca, 540cca or yuasa do a 120 battery at 760cca. I have a dash cam running off the 12v cigarette socket and I charge my phone via the socket as well.

For information. The battery was slow to turn over last week and after 7 days parked up idle its suddenly died today and will not turn over at all. On starting I just hear a clicking sound with the wipers trying to rotate when they are not activated

Any advice on how to remove the old battery would be appreciated. I looked but embarrassingly failed to even remove the cover because a could not remove the electrical circuit placed on top of the battery cover.

Thanks. Very helpful. The diagram shows a selection of oem codes for the battery. Googling oem 5600 to shows a 027 battery size. The right thing to do is attempt again to get the wiring set off the battery cover so I can view and measure the original battery size. Will keep you posted

ALWAYS buy the biggest battery that fits that way you dont have to worry they fit whatever they can get away with when new but bigger capacity is always better.

All batteries lose capacity over time, so it does make a lot of sense to fit the highest capacity one you can fit in.
Check your reg on Euro Car Parts or similar site. Also measure the physical size of yours.

Eight years life for original car manufacturers battery I think is good going. I concluded the battery is so flat that even trickle charging will put off the inevitable. So got myself a 096 size battery 77ah 780cca 5year warranty 65. Hopefully will give very me another 8years if the car lasts that long. Will fit on Saturday when I have more time and day light (working weekdays).

Just to add. With the new battery on I'll check the charging/alternator system is working properly. I think it should be 14.6v on the battery with the engine running.

NOT always modern cars use load sensing for the alternator and smart charging so it will only output full voltage when under load.
