    ANy tips for getting that fuse box off of the top of the battery to allow removal?

    have undon the clips to allow me in to undo the 10mm nut from the terminal - but cannot work out for the life of me to remove the fuse box to get it out!

    Manual was as useful as a chocolate teapot...


    cheers

    The hinge at the front of the fuse box needs to be 'unclipped' by pulling the fuse box toward the screen and away from under the hooks.... HTH

    If it's tha same as my old A3, there two push clips either side on the cover, then the cover hinges upwards and the battery can be removed (once you unbolt the steel plate holding it down)
