    Also found that a CTEK lead is thin enough to easily sit on the bootlid seal with the car locked, that's how mine charges most of the time, if you get some m6 wingnuts you can even go straight onto the existing battery clamps - easy peasy.

    Don't do what I did when I was young...after putting a new engine in my Golf I thought it would be a good idea to crank and let the oil circulate (as suggested) it was obvious the new engine had been sitting around for ages. I was too lazy to find the fuel pump fuse so I just unplugged the coil instead. Cranked it over til the oil light went out then plugged in the coil and started it...the fuel that got pumped into the engine and manifold lit up and sounded like a .50 cal anti aircraft gun. Neighbours came out their houses to see what had blown up (was about 00:30am) Car ran like a dream after that, must of given it a good clear out

    You live and learn:lolwsign:
