        Lads how do you use jump leads on a car where only the positive terminal is exposed (this would be the donor battery)

        I need to jump start the ride on mower, but changed my car since the last cut and new one has only one visible terminal. Can I just put the negative on a metal spar or is that only if you are the receiving battery?

          A bit of a silly question, but have you looked in your manual?

          I think my fathers volvo is the same,.......... EDIT: found a volvo manual online and it says connect as below. link here to all volvo manuals http://www.volvocars.com/us/services/own-and-enjoy/owners-manuals

          But its generally
          positive (donor) to positive (flat)
          negative (donor) to earthing point (flat)

            Cheers Huwie, yeah had a peek at that, there is an earthing point but it only describes it for receiving a jump start and it is as you mentioned. But no word of how to jump another vehicle, so guess they don't want you at it?

            So for clarity where do I stick the black cable (cue replies )



            Have a Generator out the back, was thinking I could push the ride on around to that and use that battery

                Open to correction but I think you put the black clip on any bit of exposed metal on the donor car.

                  From Volvo S60 2013 manual - you'll probably find yours online if you don't have it

                  Jump starting


                  Connecting the jumper cables

                  Follow these instructions to jump start your
                  vehicle's dead battery or to jump start another
                  vehicle's dead battery using your vehicle.
                  If the
                  12-volt auxiliary battery to be used is in another
                  vehicle, check that the vehicles are not touching
                  to prevent premature completion of a circuit.
                  Be sure to follow jump starting instructions
                  provided for the other vehicle.
                  To jump start your vehicle:
                  1. Switch off the ignition (set the ignition to
                  mode 0, see page 84).
                  2. First connect the red jumper cable to the
                  auxiliary battery's positive (+) terminal (1).
                  3. Fold back the cover over the positive (+)
                  terminal on your vehicle's battery (2),
                  marked with a "+" sign, located under a
                  folding cover.
                  4. Connect the black jumper cable to the auxiliary
                  battery's negative (–) terminal (3) and
                  to the ground point in your vehicle's engine
                  compartment (right engine mount at the
                  top, on the outer screw) (4).
                  5. Start the engine in the assisting vehicle,
                  then start the engine in the vehicle with
                  dead battery.
                  6. After the engine has started, first remove
                  the negative (–) terminal jumper cable
                  (black). Then remove the positive (+) terminal
                  jumper cable (red).

                      Just found a manual for a 2008 c class.
                      It says you can just un clamp the cover that covers the battery and expose the negative terminal.
                      There is a section in the back of the manual under 'Practical Hints' showing a detailed diagram of the battery. Annoyingly its not under the jump start section
                      The axe that cuts the tree can easily forget, but the tree thats been cut will not forget.

                        Cheers Huwie, Wonder what would have happened if I'd set the neg clamp to the metal!!?
                        Will have to wait for DG on that one

                          I had a 98 E class and I clamped one end on a terminal under the bonnet and the other to the bare metal. Always worked for me.

                            Black can go anywhere on metal part of dead battery vehicle.
                            Tic-Toc. POC and DOC. Stop the clock.

                              Careful now. It cant be clipped to bodywork and many other metal parts of the car.
                              A suitable earthing point on the engine or on the chassis is where you put it.
