Hi David.

If you look under the bonnet towards the rear right hand or left hand of the engine bay

you should be able to see a positive battery connection under a plastic cover it will have a + on it .

can you locate this?

Hi David.

can you see the starter motor?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.


I will look - but cannot until the morning, as it is outside.


If I locate the starter, what do you suggest?

Expert:  Rob replied 4 years ago.

Hi David .

I would get some jump leads and connect the positive to the main starter feed and a suitable earth on the engine or chassis this will power up the electrics and allow you to open the boot.

I will await your report tomorrow.
