Talking Scenic - dash noise due to loose battery!!

Hi All

Just thought I would share this bizzare thing that happened the other day. I recently bought a 1.9 dti Scenic 1998. I changed the battery a few days ago with no issues however, about a day latter I heared a noise from the central dash everytime I turned left. Sounded like a snooker ball crashing around inside there!. 1st thought was the battery.Clamp was well tight. Ask a mate to come along for a test drive, He aggreed it was comming from the dash.All controls were working fine. Asked another mate to sit in the back and went for test drive, He aggreed it was comming from the dash.On way back mate in back decided to lay on floor while I sling car thorugh roundabout sections when he said its comming from the battery housing,but when He sat up it was comming from the dash.Turns out the clamp was tight but the battery was just a tad smaller thus was slipping on its plastic tray! This was one of the most bizzare things I have come across when the noise was made under the drivers seat but was transmitted to the cental dash.
