    When I removed a Fabia battery I had to remove a plastic cover that surrounded the battery to see the bolt that holds the plate in place. I can't remember how I got the plastic off but I am sure it just involved pulling it up the way.

    You press then inwards and lift, then there is a bar going over the top IIRC.

    Hi guys i have not had chance to get the battery out as i did not finish work till late!
    can someone be kind enough to detail how to remove the plastic battery cover? I have removed the top cover its just the square cover which surrounds the battery sides. I think once i have that off ill be able to loacte what ever is holding the battery in place.

    Thanks in advance

    Jay:)
