This is really simple. First, remove your seat and disconnect your battery, the negative cable 1st. Best to disconnect the negative cable from the frame, as opposed to the battery on this model m/c. Use a 1/2″ socket to remove these two bolts (pictured). Best to, 1st, remove the bottom – then the upper bolt. The battery tray will drop down so you can remove your battery covers and the battery. You are on your way.

    I am trying to get the battery our of my 2018 Softail Deluxe. All things went smooth until the back clip. I have not been able to get the dang batter holder off. I can run a screw driver all the way down the side of the battery, can see where the holder does not move but cannot get that clip off.
