RE: Battery location

If you were looking at Haynes it shows British RHD model, where the fuse
box is on RH side of the vehicle. The battery was relocated to the rear
on US-spec models to clear space for the AC evaporator box. On European
LHD models the fuse box is in the same spot as on the US models and the
battery is where the evaporator box is.
