Relatively new owner here (and pretty mechanically untalented owner) of 1985 Silver Spur. I see battery is in trunk/boot (left-hand drive, US car) but can't figure out how to access it to replace it if/when necessary or even get to positive and negative leads in order to jump-start it if/when necessary or to trickle-charge with battery maintainer. Have read Owners' Manuals that came with car but no help here -- seems to be no way to access the battery without tearing carpet out? Can anyone recommend or provide a diagram or how-to instructions, please? Will be grateful for advice, thanks.

Mike is correct in saying the battery is under the carpet near the rear right corner of the trunk area floor. Often there is a nice hidden cover over the battery opening under the carpet. It can be a little hard to see especially in low light. There is a battery switch also on the front of the trunk on the right hand side. This turns the power on and off. Turn this off when you charge the battery. Also leave the trunk ajar while changing if you do not remove the battery as it may accumulate explosive gasses in the trunk. Good luck. Scott.
