Welcome to the forum

Can it be much different from the US PT's?

Can you post a pic of the engine bay, particularly the battery area?

In your original post, you deleted your issue when you added the pics.

Are you just wanting to know how to replace the battery?

It's in the same location as the US PT's, so removal/replacement should be the same. You have to remove the airbox cover and then the airbox, to get access to the battery hold down bolt.

Correct, no hidden screws on the airbox, it just lifts out as it sits in a rubber bushing. There
may be a hose on the side of the airbox, disconnect that to fully remove the airbox.

The battery hold down bolt will be on the backside of the battery. Remove that and then the battery will be free. Of course, disconnect the cables, the negative one first.
