The 2017 models of Citroen C3 have an inaccessible battery negative connection.

To jump start the 2017 models with another battery that has this hidden battery terminal the solution is to use the new earth point provided for this purpose.

Citroen have included an extra earth point that is easy to attach the negative jump lead to. You can find the additional early point on the far left of the engine bay.

The positive jump lead can still connect to the battery positive (+ve) terminal.
