If the Aztec is Ducato based then the battery is already "underneath" as it sits in a compartment below the passengers feet. I haven't looked but would have thought you could create a grommetted hole to run a cable along the underside of the van (following the route of the existing loom),

What cable are you wanting to run from the battery? Do the cables not run off the lighting loom at the rear of the vehicle?

Are you fitting a tow electrics interface such as the Ryder Logic 7? Mine was installed within the battery box.
