I agree fitting the CTEK Comfort lead directly to the battery is a good option:The supplied cable with ring terminal ends + and - connects straight on to the battery 10mm bolts of the possitive and negative terminals .
Then so called routed through battery compartment neat tidy finish no cables showing as such .
This one was a 171 model fitment .
But My R172 is tight up again the garage wall, so the O/S of the car is a lot easier to access.
Plus I drape the mains lead over the drivers door mirror, especially if parked outside, so I don't drive off with the CTEK charger still connected..!!! :surprise:
