How do you get to the battery?

Here are some photos taken during battery removal:

Lethal voltages! Leave it to someone who knows how to deal with it!

Watch closely, important details visible in most of the photos.

The plastic footrest does not need to come off, it's just shown for interest.

It would be nice if someone could find the time to explain it in words as well!

Mik,

Thanks for the excellent photo documentation. Could you make your album public or something, so we could bypass the slideshow?

Thanks,
Ron

Done!

Thanks, Mik! Say, a question about the insulating gloves: are they absolutely necessary, or were you just being especially cautious? Not that I wouldn't want to be especially cautious myself...

Thanks, Mik! Say, a question about the insulating gloves: are they absolutely necessary, or were you just being especially cautious? Not that I wouldn't want to be especially cautious myself...

When I am dealing with an unknown electronic device which has the capability of delivering over 200A at over 100V, I am especially cautious!
For example, the rear battery temp sensor board has high voltage connections to the negative end of the battery and to tab 28 and 86. You can zap yourself by just touching that!

I'll be buying myself a pair of gloves... Thanks.
