Battery - removal and refitting

Removal
1 The battery is located in the engine compartment on the left-hand side of the bulkhead.

2 Disconnect the leads at the negative (earth) terminal by unscrewing the retaining nut and removing the bulb. Pull off the plastic cover, and disconnect the positive terminal leads in the same way.

3 Unscrew the clamp bolt sufficiently to enable the battery to be lifted from its location (see illustration). Keep the battery in an upright position to avoid spilling electrolyte on the bodywork.

Refitting
4 Refitting is a reversal of removal, but smear petroleum jelly on the terminals when reconnecting the leads, and always connect the positive lead first and the negative lead last.
