What for?

What is the purpose of the battery cover? I'd like to leave it off so I can have better access to the battery, for charging, etc.

What would I risk by leaving the cover off?

Something metal in your trunk falling across the battery terminals causing a direct short, followed by spectacular arching and fireworks, and finally a really loud explosion when the hydrogen from your excessively gassing and overheating battery in the trunk lights off and blows your rear clam apart. :panic:

Other than that, there is no risk with leaving the cover off.

And I would love to see that photo! :crazyeyes :D

Seriously, another good reason to use the cover is to help contain spilled acid from a leaking battery so it doesn't get all over the stuff you keep in the trunk. It tends to contain a leak to the corner of the trunk so there isn't such huge mess to clean up.

I'll find out for you when I get a chance.
What area of Sacto do you live? I grew up near Ranch Cordova.
I grew up in Rancho. Then lived off of Bradshaw for about a year and just moved to Citrus heights.. Still have to move all the "toys" from the garage..
