I think there might be enough room for me to disconnect the negative terminal but not the positive terminal. If the negative terminal is disconnected from the battery, wouldn't the car be disconnected from the battery?
That should work but do be careful. Remove the battery ground connection and secure the cable so it can't flop around, don't touch any of the charger leads to any part of the car (except the battery terminals) and like Leftie mentioned, be sure the car is OFF.
