Starting and charging systems / Battery - removal and refitting


Note: Refer to the precautions at the end of Section 1 before proceeding.

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

2 Disconnect the leads at the negative (earth) terminal by undoing the retaining nut and removing the bolt. Disconnect the positive terminal leads in the same way.

3 Undo the bolts securing the two battery clamps and remove the clamps.

4 Lift the battery from its location, keeping it in an upright position to avoid spilling electrolyte on the paintwork.

Refitting
5 Refitting is the reverse sequence to removal.

Smear petroleum jelly on the terminals when refitting and always connect the positive lead first and the negative lead last.
