battery location 04 v6 Touareg

Searched forum can't find info on location of battery. Purchased 04 v6 Touareg and new to this vehicle. Manual says battery is under front seat. I don't see it. How do you replace battery and where is it. How do you jump it with battery cables.

There are terminals for jump starting under the hood. Look near the firewall on the drivers side. It's under a large dust cap.

It really is under the front seat, but you don't see when you are looking under it. You have to remove a couple panels and the seat to see it. You jump it from the terminals under the hood like described above.

Best to use a battery charger if it's flat and not to let the alternator try the charge it. A failing battery in these vehicles can cause loads of odd faults.
