    Default AA Breakdown Parts Warranty Battery Replacement

    Hi All

    I've got AA Breakdown and the part/labour warranty cover, recently my battery has been going flat. The other day I was waiting to pick up a friend had the engine off and radio on, in around 5 mins the battery was dead. Just wondering whether the AA warranty will replace the battery and what sort of excess I will be expected to pay?

    Thanks!

    If theres an excess involved would you not be better just spending the £50 down at the dealer parts dept for a new battery at your own leisure?

    As above...The excess is £35 but you are only covered if you breakdown and have to be recovered by the AA for the parts warrenty to pay out. This also means you have to be a certain mile radius from home.....Due to the terms I have copied and pasted below I think your better of just buying one matey....

    In order for Your AA Breakdown Repair Cover to apply, the nominated vehicle must:
    a) break down as a result of Mechanical or Electrical Failure, and
    b) as a result, be prevented from continuing its journey safely, and
    c) have been attended by the AA under Your AA Membership, and
    d) need the repair or replacement of insured part(s) to enable the journey to be resumed or,
    if applicable, commenced

    Also read the following From there terms etc

    defects You knew or ought reasonably to have known about prior to the
    commencement of the journey on which the Mechanical or Electrical Failure occurred

    Wear and Tear, unless it has caused an insured part to suffer a Mechanical or Electrical
    Failure;

    Thanks for the quick replies chaps, just had a quick look at Euro parts the cheapest is £59.94 most expensive around £90. Just thinking pay the £35 excess for a new battery with AA, ensuring I break down a few miles away!

    As i said the cheapest place for things like batteries is your local parts department. Euro car parts is expensive in comparison.

    Maybe call your 2 closest dealers and see who gives you the cheapest price.

    Be careful though bud as they may say its not covered as its a defect you ought to have noticed prior to your journey and that its wear and tear???????? Then you will have to pay there battery costs. Plus they will only replace if it stops you from onward travel, which they can argue that a jump start will suffice to get you to a garage to replace yourself....

    I have the AA Cover and been through the terms with a toothpick lol.....You would be suprised whats not covered and the amount of wormholes they have lol.

    Have you tried dealer costs, if you were a full member you would get it at club trade which im sure is about £45....

    If you've got the cover, call them out! You could potentially be looking at an alternator too, and this cover will sort it

    I called the AA out under this policy and they attended at my home without any question
    The breakdown cover includes Home Call

    As the excess is only £25 call them out
    You have paid for the policy use it

    However the cause of the flat battery needs to be found
    Possibly the auxiliary belt or alternator

    The report from the AA will then authorise any and all parts to complete that specific repair
