New battery for the Tiguan

Miles: 39097

The 2018 Tiguan has been using the same 6R0-915-105-B battery since it was new. Now we were getting codes about voltage on many modules so it was time to replace it.

I went with the same battery I put in my 2016 GTI earlier this year, a Duralast Platinum H6-AGM 760 CCA. Its been working well for me so figured it was worth getting again. Due to me changing from a Led Acid to AGM type battery as well as the Tiguan having a BEM module followed these instruction using my VCDS to make the appropriate changes

I topped it all off in the end with turning the wheel lock to lock (all the way left then all the way right) to clear common codes related to a battery disconnect.
