Hello and Welcome to justanswer..
You do sometimes get this problem when you fit batteries that are non original , ie, non Toyota... but , you will be able to find a battery from a different supplier that will fit properly and with the bracket fitted..
Do a search on yell.com
- to find a specific car battery supplier - one that specialises - you will be able to get a battery that fits properly then..
Re your comment - re the size of batteries... Physical size and power output of the batteries will be the same - but its the design -
If the battery has an over the top fitting clamp - thats where these problems arise..
If however, its a base clamp fitting - that clips on to the bottom ledge of the battery - look closely at the battery - there is often a plastic insert that is to be removed.. then the battery will fit.
If you simply cannot get the battery to fit in any way - with a clamp - the battery you have can
be fitted without the hold down clamp - but its not ideal.. One of the most common causes of premature battery failures in cars, is down to vibration - caused by the lack of a fitting clamp... so while the battery will physically work - I wouldn't recommend you use that one - rather - locate and fit a proper fitting one..
I Sincerely hope I have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...
Kind Rgds, MIKE
