I am struggling to find the battery and am getting coflicting info. The downloaded maunual shows it as under the bonnet: it is not.

I cannot lift the back seats so have discounted under there.

I have also checked the boot and am still unable to locate the battery. Does anyone have any ideas?

The battery is flat and it has been suggested that it can be jumped by attaching to a bolt on the engine and to some specific plates located in the engine bay, but am unsure what is what.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks for your time on this.

It is under the rear seat base, grab the seat base at each corner on the front, and pull up sharply, making sure your fingers are under the seat base. :thumbsup

If you need to jump it mate theres a small rectangular shaped box with a cap on it and a red cross. Just attach the red lead to the metal bolt under the cap and the black lead onto one of the bolts on top of the suspension turret to give you an earth.

The box is there to save you jumping it from under the back seat.:thumbsup
