    @H-Tune I'm after in blue an after market battery tie down clamp.
    It needs to be off set in the CU2 but finding this very hard to source.
    I'm thinking something like the photo below. image.

    I've not come across any suitable for the 7th Generation Accord, not sure about the 8th Generation.

    I've got plans to make my own a CNC.

    I was thinking Speedy of spraying my OEM one as there so hard to source.
    I might have to have a chat to my mate as he is a fabrication engineer and might make a template up for me

    The closest possibility I can think of for fitment would be FD2 considering it's also for a large saloon produced around the same time? Not the best thing to go from but:

    K-Tuned Battery Tie Down/Stay - UK Dealer

    Annoyingly K-Tuned don't supply dimensions on the above, that's likely so they don't get copied. We don't have any in stock here at the moment to check either.

    Thanks for your quick reply but these will not fit by the looks as the 2 fixing holes are offset by about 20mm.

    Thanks anyway for your time.
    I might have to make one I'm thinking if I can't source one.

    The CL9 (and I believe cu2) battery clamps have offset battery holes, so these clamps won't work unless you do some fab work and move the hook that the upright bar connects to.

    That looks more or less the same as the 7th Generation one.

    What are those two fuses for?
