Hi

I am new to Morgan cars but earlier this year boughyt a Plus 4. Used it during the summer and want to lay it up over winter. Where's the battery? How do I get to it easy to fit a trickle charger.

If it's not obvioulsy under the bonnet then most have them behind the seats. Lift up the carpet cover behind the seats (usually press studs) and you will find a plywood cover with clips, take that off as well to expose the back axle and.... the battery!!

Peter, perhaps we could all pitch in and help you fit this modification to the Morgan? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />
