I was looking to add a battery tender as well and ended up just removing the interior on that side of the trunk. The red plastic cover has a couple of small plastic teeth/latches that snap in place around the plastic body. I had to use a mini flathead to undo the teeth in one place and the rest of it came loose. Even knowing how to remove the plastic, there's really not enough room/slack to do much. If I had to do it again, I'd probably just remove the interior cover again.
I got tired of messing with alligator clamps and made my CTEK battery tender connections semi-permanent by attaching one end of the disconnect to the battery terminals.
Even during non-winter months my car can sit for weeks at a time, so I keep it connected to the tender. Just a quick unplug and I'm ready to go.
It's the original battery, now 5 1/2 yrs old. Battery Tender/IMG_0002_zpsc1bb59c1.jpg Battery Tender/IMG_0004_zpsbe5e6430.jpg
