Post subject: E28 battery charging question

(Standard Noobie Disclaimer...)

Does the e28 have a positive battery terminal site like newer BMWs?

I'd like to hook up my Schumacher XC75 battery charger and I wasn't able to spot a site for the positive cable other than the battery terminal itself. The negative, I assume, goes to the ground/engine lift bracket.

Alas, I haven't bought at Bentley manual and my old Chilton manual isn't specific enough about the e28.

You can just put positive cable to positive post and negative cable to negative post when using a battery charger. Just remember that negative should always come off first and be put on last.

Since the battery is mounted in the front of the car, you connect straight to the battery. Good luck!
