ƒI've replaced mine with a WalMart battery, #41-4 that's made by
ƒJohnson Controls (I think?). Just had to remove that heat sheild and
ƒit dropped right in and clamped down
Thanks for the info.
It's really funny, the battery itself says 40R on it, which supposedly
means reversed terminals -- so just finding a battery that fits
probably shouldn't work. Yet when I look at the battery, with the
terminals on the far side away from me, the + is on the left, and the
- is on the right. That's the same terminal layout as my Camry, which
has a 26L battery, and supposedly is a left +. So, maybe the R means
something different then. In any case a 41 is much more common than
40R to find. My wifes Taurus says it only takes a 58R battery, but it
also has the same terminal layout that the Contour and Camry have. Go
