I'm so glad I found this thread!

I had the exact same issue as the OP a couple days ago. Turned the key and heard a couple clicks, then all the lights went out...and nothing. Went to the trunk and started to loosen the positive battery cable and noticed the trunk lights come one. So I tightened everything back down and drove off.

Since that happened I've been searching the forums for info on how my convertible battery is supposed to be mounted in there. It seems like it's just sitting there loose, not clamped or bracketed or anything.

So can someone please tell me how exactly are our vert batteries are held in place?

Thanks.

John

I noticed that the battery also doesn't have any venting tubes?

Can someone be more specific about the function of these battery venting tubes? As the previous owner took the vibration damper system I don't know how the whole thing works.
