    Im going to clean out the area under the battery as it is suffering from the common issue of filling with water. I know the small drain holes require cleaning out, but is it also advisable to remove the large rubber bungs from the holes in front of the drain holes? Any negative effects to this?

    There's a bung directly underneath the battery. I just pushed the entire bung through and never had the issue again.

    Started the job last night and finished it off this morning. Quite dirty down, there but all clean now with both bungs removed. Should hopefully resolve the issue now permanently.

    After putting the battery back in this morning I found this wire hanging loose. The other end seems to go down into the wing. Where should it be connected?

    Hi Chris, it's not a cable It's the battery vent tube

    Should be pushed in to the hole on the side of the batter if there is one

    Thanks mate that thought had crossed my mind. Couldn't see an obvious place for it to go but I'll go have another look. Thanks for your help.
