They put the terminal _literally_ at the bottom of battery compartment where all the water collects:

Photos of connector?

Hi,

I've the exact same loss of power symptoms you describe in this recall. I'm trying to work out if I have the same type of connector as the one that was recalled in North America.

Does anyone have any photographs of the connector & Fuse Box in question?

I've asked BMW here in the UK but not getting much help at the moment from them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Will this recall also fix issues with charging the battery? If I shut off the engine but leave the radio on it will turn off by itself after a minute and display a low battery warning. Battery is new and doubt it is the alternator since I can always start up my car.
