I assume that you mean the hood.  It opens the same way that the hood in
almost every car.

You found the remote terminal connector for the battery; the battery itself
is in the back of the car.

The body of the car is the negative terminal; there is no need for a
separate negative connector as with the positive one.

The booster battery is the one you are charging the car's battery from.

The manual is incomprehensible.  For the start, it doesn't explain how
to open the hatch. After lots of trying, I found the button under the
hatch, found the stick which should keep it opened, and found the hole
for this stick (this part was the hardest, it is well hiddened).  I
easily found the auxiliary battery, opened it, found "+", but was
unable to find "-", no matter how hard I tried.  The small picture in
the manual is incomprehensible.  It seems that "-" is somewhere in the
right upper part, far away from the battery, near the tank.  The
sentence "Connect the clamp on the negative (black) jumper cable to
the negative (-) terminal on the booster battery" doesn't help at
all.  Where is the negative terminal?

I don't know why my post continues to appear again and again.  I
posted it only once.

Maybe because you haven't found the negative post...
