Alright chaps....
Just a quickie, flat battery this morning, just went out to try and jump start and test the input voltage to the battery, but noticed I can't get to the positive of the battery, due to all sorts of nuts, bolts, cables, plastic trim..... My jump leads just won't reach the terminal.....

Anyone no a easy way to the positive conection of the battery..........

Jump starting can be bad for the ECU and other sensitive electronics. Best to use a charged battery. Disconnect it to charge as well!

I regularly jump start 156s - did one that I collected today - you can connect to the nuts attaching the starter cable into the fuse box/connector block - you don't have to get down to the actual battery terminal.....connect the earth to a solid bit of engine, and to be on the safe side, don't have the key in the ignition when you connect the jump leads.....
