Hi all. Is there any special procedure for disconnecting the battery when removing something electrical? I know with Citroens the Body Systems Interface has to be shut down and restarted in a special way.

Never heard of any special method - do all aftermarket battery places know how to change the battery on a Citroen?

What electrical work are you doing?

I was always told remove earth connector first, replace it last.

More important if red connector next to bodywork.

Edit.
.ahhh do you still need the radio code on new cars?

OK so it's probably best to disconnect the battery before doing that. Have you looked in the manual? - the manual for mine lists the things which need to be reset after battery disconnection - it's in the Maintenance section at the back.

I managed to get a Haynes for the Sorento. Although it doesn't seem to distinguish between diesel and petrol engines, nor does it mention the two types of transfer box control.
