Disappeared boot-lid release battery connection point.

Recommended Posts

Hi all.


 


I replaced my battery a few months' back, which first necessitated me opening the front lid via a doner battery connected to the little red pin in the fusebox near the driver's foot.


 


Hey presto, it opened, and I was able to get the new battery in place and connect the ventilation tube... all went swimmingly well and I was very pleased with myself indeed.


 


However, I then somewhat spoiled things by  pressing the little red pin too far into the fusebox assembly.  I've now no idea how I can get the bloody thing back out again.   I'm hoping I won't need to anytime soon, but I'm rather uncomfortable about it. 


 


Any of you clever people got any ideas?


 


Cheers.

Open the front lid.  Take out the headlight assembly (the right hand light looking from the driving seat).  There's a good chance you will be able to see the emergency release cable that runs from the catch towards the ait intake.  Make sure it's there and that you can get to it.  You might consider adding an extension so that it's easier to get to. 

 

The other option is to tackle this from the engine compartment emergency release which is under the left rear light.  Remove the rear light housing to find the cable.  Open the engine cover and apply a jump voltage to the jump start points in the engine bay.  With voltage restored you should be able to operate the front boot lid switch.
