Leave it to the FNG to ask a couple of dumb questions...

I "discovered" the location of the battery by accident...the back seat came loose while I was putting a sticker up in the rear window. How do I get this doggoned thing to latch back into place?

Furthermore, with the battery back there, how the he11 do you "jump" this thing if/when the battery takes a dive?

Yes...I AM clueless...

There are jump points labeled under the hood in the case you ever need a jump. They are on the right side of the engine bay.

Marauder tilt back of seat slightly up, put front two "pegs" under the seat in holes and press down, then fit the back cutouts around the seat belt buckles and push down.

I too have those tubes on my battery, just for the record.

No issues though.
