    Default Battery "Hide-and-Seek"

    It's hard enough to find a battery now days but look at this 2004 model. The battery is under the hood(bonnet to our Brothers on the other side of the Pond). The battery however is completely concealed under that large plastic cover. Even the cables and battery terminals are hidden from view.

    Teaching Point: Before you give up and start looking somewhere else for a battery, snoop around these covers. You may be shocked to see what you find!

    No pics of the case off? It would be nice to see that.

    Good example of not judging it by its cover, or its setup in this case.

    We've had that style of cover for a number of years here in Oz, already....

    Ron:

    I'm sure you remember the early 90's GM "W" series, Grand Prix, Regal, Cutlass, Monte Carlo, where they have the battery under the windshield washer fluid tank.

    And don't forget today's LeSabre/Impala/Bonneville where it's under the rear seat!!
