RE: battery drain while parked - why?

The euro spec cars without A/C don't have the battery under the rear
seat - it's in the plenum chamber, where the evaporator housing is
located on air conditioned cars. On these cars it's possible to remove
the blower motor without moving the heater box. Seems like Audi
engineers couldn't find a suitable place for the A/C unit, so they
decided to clear some space by moving the battery to the rear.
