    Where is the positive terminal for 2007 A3 battery?

    Left my laptop connected to the cig lighter socket and drained the battery. When attempting to start the solenoid click-click-clicks but no attempt at turning from the engine at all.

    Popped the bonnet, can't find the position terminal for the battery, unless there's some flap on the battery itself I have to flip?

    A thin plastic cover hides the battery. Push the catch at the front to disengage it, lift the front and un hook it from the lugs at the back (windscreen end). Don't be rough with it!
    The positive terminal is the one nearest the radiator. When you're ready to re-start, you'll get a few warning lights that should go off after a short drive.
