Leisure Battery

Hi Guys,
I have just taken the plunge and purchased a Joint J156 motorhome which is in great condition, however the leisure battery is dead and I was looking for some help. The van is a Peugot boxer 2007 and the battery is under the driver seat and I cant figure out how to remove it. I would welcome any help.
Thanks Kenny Hutton

Sadly Ken I think you have to remove the seat and runners complete. Usually four Allen screws.

And if it's anything like the Ford transit it'll be very heavy n awkward - I watched someone else do it!

Leisure batteries are normally under the passengers seat.....please check you are correct.....presumably the vehicle battery is under the bonnet?
Good luck and a warm welcome

I try and state simple facts in a nice way.
