    No, it's a red plus terminal that's actually the only marked terminal on the battery casing with a giant +!

    You have to remove the air intake to get at it.

    That's just the primary fusible link set, by the looks...it's part of a cover over the battery. Fabia's the same. Mine has a seperate fusible link/relay box, and a "main" fuseboard..heh.

    If you look further down that thread you can see a lump of metal coming out from under the LH flap (RH pic of two), going behind the air filter. What's that about if not the neg connection?

    Strike that; the video finally loaded. What a crock of ..... the French have cooked up. How to make something as simple as a battery far too complex for the layman to deal with! (Jobs for the boys? Yup!)

    You may be interested to know the 308 has a VTi engine that was designed and developed in a joint project with those Germans down at BMW!

    I'd hate to have to top up the oil, you probably have to pull the engine :-)

    I had a 1998 Vectra ( whatever obscure plate number that is ) and you could change them easy enough, there was a moveable relay box you had to slide out of the way though.

    My 05 Megane is exactly the same - indeed any of the front bulbs.

    It is really easy when you know how though, possibly easier than skinned knuckles and strange contortions of your hands and arms to reach through the gap on a 'normal' car.

    This sort of thing is all part of the charm of French electrics though - much like why my passenger side front window is disconnected (it opens itself when it feels like it and then wont shut!).

    We had an 05 "migraine" too..... what a nightmare. Timing belt replacement.... drop the block. Water pump replacement, you guessed it..... drop the block!!
    Wasn't sad to see the back of it. I wouldn't buy another Renault. In fact probably any continental european car for that matter...... Not that that's even an option now.

    ...and the DV6 engine in my 307 was developed by Ford and Peugeot. See: Ford DLD engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
