Thanks guys.
Now you need to figure out if you have an AGM battery or not. Someone said the white ones (like mine) are regular and AGM are black - I have not verified that.

When/ if you recondition it's best to totally disconnect the battery are reconditioning pushes the voltage very high and could damage/ shorten the life of other components.

For regular charging use the crocodile clips to the posts on the bonnet. Battery is in the back on the right - needs about three trim pieces removing to access. OEM batteries range from 70->90Ah; any will charge in a day with the 7 Amps from a CTEK 7002.
