to be honest quite expensive. canadian dealership selling for 90CAD.
i think a few us online dealership part stores were selling it around 45-50USD,
the Mexico one with the stupid notch thing was significantly cheaper like 25usd or something from that same place.
i know most would just cut it like the person above. but i'm anal/paranoid about these things. ie. if the battery ever leaked, i'd much rather it leak into the tray under it and not have acid all over in the engine bay.. but it is a very minor concern. and most wouldn't care.. but i'm stupid like that so i guess stupidity costs money haha.

The part you want is : 31521-T5A-000 in the description it will say something like (B19L / B24L)
in diagrams they may show online shows the wrong part, but that is the correct part number. I think they just re-use the same diagram for both.

the shitty wrong part that came with our crappy mexico built fit is 31521-T9P-000 (note the P) in the description it would say something like B19

the main reason i'm changing to 51R is the really bad battery in my fit. i got it replaced once under warranty after year 1 already. and its dead again. its just undersized for the amount i drive... which is not too much.

Thanks for the part #, did a quick lookup, lowest is a used one on eBay for $45.

Your battery = dead often is likely due the environment you are in (Calgary, CA). I am in SoCal, so the original battery lasted a little over 4 yrs, when it started requiring me to push start a few times at times before the engine would fires up, it is time to replace it. Why for me? 51R battery(Costco) costs a lot less for more crank = no-brainer.

I had my 2015 Fit battery replaced at Pep Boys this morning. Bosch 51R with 25% online ordering discount and free installation. $125 with tax included. They trimmed the plastic battery tray to accommodate the larger 51R.

I'm very envious that you got an Optima battery the Fit.

I have a 2015 Fit EX-L and the battery tray is longer than the battery. The battery looks like it belongs in a lawn mower but still works after almost 5 years.

My 2015 has the small battery and the tray is designed to "fit" the smaller battery. I will need to modify the tray to accept the 51R. I just saw 51R at Costco for $78 if anyone is interested.
