The Skoda Fabia car is a vehicle manufactured by Czech automaker Skoda Auto. The car was introduced in 1999. Unlike many automobiles, the battery on the Fabia uses a lower or bottom-battery mount instead of the traditional battery tie down which is normally located on the top of the battery. This can make it somewhat confusing if you need to change the battery. Fortunately, the procedure is relatively straightforward.
