there is a bolt hidden from view, that holds a clamp that holds the bottom lip of the battery. It is located centerline behind the battery. It is practically invisible even with a flash light. You need to move the battery flap out of the way and some cables and you still may not see it but its there. It may also be covered with dirt making it dificult to see as well. And be carefull putting the bolt back in, if you drop it it will fall into a body cavity and never come out, Ive been driving without the bolt and never had a problem i years as the battery is very snug anyway.

How do you remove the battery from a 2007 vw beetle?

How do you remove the battery from a 2007 vw beetle? Need: 10 mm wrench or socket 6 mm hex socket and extension ratchet The battery is located to the far right as you face the engine bay. You need to remove the battery cover. It has several obvious plastic tab latches that you push to release. Remove the cover. You will see a breaker box on top of the battery. This slides out pushing away from you towards the back of the car. Remove the positive and negative battery terminals with a 10 mm socket or wrench. Bungee cord or duct tape the whole collection of breaker box and positive and negative terminal away from you, clear of the top of the battery. You will see that the battery is surrounded and partially covered by a plastic shield. The left front side releases by pushing on obvious plastic tabs to the right. The shield will seem to be stuck in the center back. There is no tab to release here, it is a friction fit (this is the secret!). Pull straight up on the shield and it will release. Voila! You just completed the hard part. Almost there! Center front at the base of the battery is a 6 mm hex bolt holding the battery in. You will need a socket extension and a hex socket to remove this. Once this is removed, slide the battery to the left and tip it up and out.

How do you remove the battery on a 2003 Honda Shadow 750?

Remove the two bolts that hold the rear of the seat, then lift seat up and pull back. Remove the plastic cover above the battery. Now you can remove the battery terminal cables, start with the negative and end with the positive cable. Lift the battery up and out of its housing or box. If it is stuck there then check if there is foam or weather stripping holding it in place. If this is the case, a sudden jerk upward will free the battery. Put the new battery in, make sure it turns the same way as the old battery did. Now connect the battery cables, beginning with the positive and ending with the negative terminal. Put the cover above the battery in its place. Finally, fasten the seat in the reverse order that you removed it.
