There are two bolts to the left of the battery box when you are facing it. One bolt keeps the battery box from falling down. This is the vertical bolt underneath the unused ignition switch hole. The other bolt head is facing you and is used to keep the box secured to the frame. Loosen the horizontal bolt and remove it. Then remove the vertical bolt. the battery box will pivot down and will let you remove the chrome cover. Remove the top of the battery box first and then the cover.
