Nearest petrol/gas station.
Also your car assistance service if you have one.

If you can wait until Monday, go to Jumbo (near Ikea Deitlikon)

I had to get a new battery on a call a couple of weeks out after mine decided to suddenly fry itself. 320CHFs at the time which I suspect/hope is quite high for a fairly standard battery for a petrol engine.
I haven't priced them up anywhere else as I'd rather not know how much extra I was robbed!

That's Switzerland for you!!

Joke:

A man walk into a car spares shop and asks the assistant
"I want a battery for a Rover."
"Seems a fair swap"

While not relevant to the OP now, in case someone else refers to this thread, if you are a member of TCS, they sell batteries also, available anytime you call them.

A bit of a thread resurrection but that info. is useful to know (about TCS). Thank you.
