My PC1200MJT that is. Thought I would share my install of this as all my seaching came up with nothing but a bunch of BS and hack installs. As many have experienced the modern VW likes to eat batteries especially those not driven daily. I won't bore you with the battery spec. details as that info is plentiful, however I did chose the 1200 because it fits our tray the best for. and aft.and it's about half the weight of a traditional battery. But what is not available through searching both the text and abroad is a mounting solution for these batteries, as the Odyssey's do not have a bottom locking lip. Until I came across the HDS-1200/1700 strap from West Coast Batteries Inc.. From the pics you will see that the back side has a t-bar to lock into the tray lip. Install was straight forward with some minor tweeks.
Tweeked the mounts bolt angle to match the bolt angle
Needed to use a 10mm longer mounting bolt
I add a small peice of rubber 1/4" weather stripping to the bracket to help secure things a touch tighter than designed, not nesecarly needed
Angled the positive terminal to clear the cover
Had to clearance the outer cover slightly with a razor knife to clear the taller mount bolt/mount
