yes on the right, it's the battery cover. I removed it obviously
10 sec ??? how is it possible ...

On the right? As you look in from the rear of the car.
On my car the battery cover is on the left, not the right, as the battery is on the left side of the boot/hatch, and I'm 99% sure it stayed this way on the 2016.

So
I finally gone to JLR garage...
So they successfully unplugged battery from the positive node (with a tall strong guy ! :D)
And...
They were disappointed by the Trunc cover blocked by this pieac of metal... and didn't successufully removed it. It's just incredibble, it looks like it"s a really bad conception issue :/

SO if I want to change my battery... I will have to cut out the box to allow removing it and access to the bottom of the trunk to unscrew the battery... shame

I guess I will order new standard pieces to replace these ones. :/

Something is wrong there, as I have explained the "box" should come out fairly easily.
Yes, the design could have been improved to make it even easier, but it comes out!
Maybe someone stuck yours down?
Don't waste your money on new pieces just yet, surely that box has to come out, keep trying!

no really... the box can't get out of it's place.
We had a look to it, and there is clearly no space to remove it, this f**** piece of metal doesn't allow to raise the box more than 20cm , and even like that it's by bending the box and forcing a lot.
that's just incredible.

Hi all
So I just did approx. 6000km with my car.
No issues... the max time I let the car without driving was 2 nights... so I wasn't able to test if the reste was functionnal...

So after one week parked... I got again the message :x

So now, It could be only the Battery to be changed.
but... I can't change it because of this F***** piece that I can't remove.
I guess I will let the Car to JLR to let them do it (probably not the cheapest way to change a bettery) and find a solution, probably with the Factory to solve this.

Get someone at the dealership to show you how to remove the box, then you can do it yourself in future.
It really is quite simple and I cannot figure out why you can't get it out!

It's really seems like a conception fault.

Tadaaaa.... so... I let the car for 3 weeks... and... it started properly !
So whatever I got the message the car is able to start anyway... I guess the Battery unplug was clearly effective.
Anywayn letting the cars for many weeks without running would lead to a battery fault...
I have to find a way to drive my car more ! :p
