Hi guys,

I've got some issues fitting an ARB battery tray in the GQ.
When I use the coil mounting bracket bolt hole, the tray sits against the firewall but to high to bolt it down. I can't get it any lower.

Anyone fitted an ARB tray before? Am I doing something wrong, or do I need to use a bit more force?

I just fitted one (the same tray i believe) into my CRD last weekend. it took a considerable amount of levering (with a 2' length of wood) before i could get the bolts in. I was convinced for about an hour that it wouldn't fit. but it did. eventually

Guys at ARB had a look and we discovered there is a tube from the diff breather into the guard in the way so the tray can't go low enough. The tube is easy to remove where it changes to a rubber tube.

i have one very similar to he arb tray, i had turned my coil 90' so the tip faces the motor and then mounted the ballast resistor on the wall. i also have a diesel battery tray aswell under the bonnet of my tb42
