Anyone familiar with the acid level indicator on the original Audi/VW battery? I am almost certain my battery is in need of a replacement, due to the relatively long crank times when the vehicle has been left for a few hours (which is made far worse when starting the vehicle with any accessories turned on). I checked the acid level indicator to determine if the electrolyte is spent or not, and the label says that if the indicator is black, the battery is still good, and if it is clear, it needs to be replaced. The trouble is, I have no idea how to decipher the difference to determine what mine reads. The photo of the indicator I have attached is from my iPhone, so I apologize for any blurriness. Any input is appreciated!
