    Exclamation Quick question, urgent reply needed!

    Just in the process of removing my cam cover (Z20LET), and after removing the black plastic insert, i noticed that the part inside that needs to be removed says 'high voltage', so i thought i better disco the battery. However, everytime i do, the alarm goes off. Its a good feature but is there a way to get around it?

    Or can i remove the black case thingy that says High Voltage without danger (i doubt it!). Need a quick reply if poss as I wanna get on wiv it!

    Cheers.

    Does it go off even with the keys in the ignition?

    I don't know if it would or not because I don't have an alarm on mine but just a thought.

    It's the power sounder going off..
    Found this posted by VIPER:


    Before removing the battery, you need to have the key in the iginition..Switch the ignition on and then off leaving the key in the ignition remove the battery negative lead within 15 seconds of ignition off otherwise the alarm resets itself..............

    Remember to reset your windows once the battery is reconected as well by opening them fully down and then shut them but keep a hold of the button when they reach the top until you hear a click from the door......................

    Matt that high voltage warning is just if you have the engine running as its the coil pack for the spark plugs.

    just undo the 2 bolts and remove it mate, don't need to worry about disconnecting the battery mate

    as has been said. put key in ignition and turn on (ignition on) take terminal off battery.
    should make a blipping noise when you remove the terminal
    Job done.

    Like Legoman says it's just a warning for when the engines running. No need to remove the battery for what your doing.

    Well, I got so fed up wit the alarm, and because i needed to get on with it, i took the risk and didn't disco the batt. Went OK, and the cover as now been painted. Took me ages to clean, but its gone Ok and got a great finish on it.

    Now for all me other bits! Is it possible to polish the heatshield urself?

    Cheers lads.

    Matt
