Removal and Installation
Beginning with 1974 models, all vehicles are furnished with only one battery. The battery has a capacity of 66 Ah. A battery with a capacity of 88 Ah is available on special order.
The battery is located in the left forward part of the luggage compartment and is easily accessible upon removal of the cover mat.
To remove the battery, disconnect battery leads from the battery terminals, disconnecting the ground strap first. Then remove the bracket retaining bolt in the compartment floor and take the bracket off.
A special tool for removal and installation of the 88 Ah battery is supplied with the car from 1981 models on.
