I have a petrol S3 and it has a Halfords 072 battery, if that helps.

I posted a similar thread a month ago...and resolved it thus:

Well....after failing to get her to even start on a portable pack I went to buy a new battery...Euro Car Parts couldn't find one for me, UNIPART wanted 112 quid for another lead-acid unit with a 3 year I went to Halfrauds and spoke to a guy who knows about cars and is over 40 ! (instead of the usual spotty 14 year old) I bought one of their Calcium batteries which has a 4 year warranty - 99. Their online catalogue doesn't even list a 76' S3 SWB...but the guy knew what would a HCB072...fits perfectly...and she burst into life first time...checked the output on high revs and it is showing about 14v so the alternator should be OK. If any of you have ever wondered what to do with a bust battery...a really old guy who laid a tarmac drive for me a few years ago poured the acid from one onto the ground before laying the hardcore....the best weedkiller ever..stops anything from growing up through fresh tarmac or concrete. Not very 'environmentally friendly'...but if I gave a toss about that I wouldn't own an old landy !!
