Will anyone out there in Cyber Land please tell me precisely how I gain
access to my Auxiliary battery in my 1994 V.W. Westfailia Eurovan???

The battery is a German built "gel cell" unit and is located under the
drivers seat, but for the life of me I am unable to actually gain
access using the instructions in the V.W. owners manual. "lifting the
seat stop" doesn't do it !!!!

How do I get to see the auxiliary Battery ???? Anyone out there know

Hey, bye the way -- it's a great vehicle...

With thanks and kind regards

I'm going to access my 1993 Westfalia battery today and it is in the aft locker beside the luggage compartment. If you indeed do have a gel battery you need to have a special voltage regulator as the high voltage (usually 14.4V) from the vehicle alternator/regulator will boil the gel and kill your expensive battery. Gel batteries should never see a charge above 14.2V maximum. Ditto using a solar charger without a good reglator. Solar chargers put out about 17.7V and that will kill any battery in short order.

Hi did you ever find the location of the battery. I had a repair shop look and they cannot find it either?
