Just glad your wife doesn't drive the american mk1 golf or that post might've taken on an entirely different meaning!!The battery charger for my wife's Spyder was inop, so I bought another. Plugged it in today and the new one wouldn't charge either. The battery in '10-'12 Spyder RTs is buried deep under the seat behind a bunch of body panels and structural parts -- almost impossible to get to. It took me 2 hrs 45 min to replace the charging pigtail.
