    Trying to jump start my S3 but I can't get the jump lead clip attached to the positive terminal on the battery, its just too tight in there to get it attached. Also where should I attach the negative clip, I'm looking for somewhere on the chassis as suggested, but can't see anywhere obvious.

    If someone can let me know how I can get access to the positive terminal and where to connect the negative clip it would be a big help.

    Thanks.

    There isn't enough access to positive on battery if you open the lid on the little fuse box on top of it?

    As regards the negative, advice these days is to connect to a nice chunky bit of bare metal somewhere on the chassis etc; but before health and safety decided the method must be reinvented, connecting to the neg on the battery worked just fine...

    Regards,

    Rob.
