360 Battery Location
The aim of this post is to help newbies find the battery on their car as there will come a time when you have to remove the battery and it really is quite easy.
This morning when I went to start the 360 I had a flat battery or rather there was not enough juice to crank the starter (click, click, click.).
I am a little unfamiliar with the mechanics of the car and so I was not aware of the location of the battery. A search showed that the battery is located in the passenger footwell behind the footplate.
The footplate is held by 4 Allen key screws. Once these are removed the footplate and carpet can be pulled out. There is a further black plate behind retained by 2 Phillips/Star head screws, the battery is located behind this plate.
I removed the battery terminals with a 10mm socket (ratchet & extension required) and connected the charger to the battery insitu making sure the terminals were well out of the way and could not make contact during the charging process. I also ensured the battery chargers connectors did not touch the retaining bracket.
4 hours later I switched off the battery charger having seen the battery was fully charged, disconnected the charging cables and reconnected the battery terminals (+ve first), making sure I had left the sidelights on in order to draw any immediate power spike. The alarm sounder bleeped twice. I refitted the black plate, the carpet and the footplate. Started the car and entered the radio code (factory radio).
Note: To remove the battery from its compartment you will need to remove the retaining bracket.
