Question about Ford Ranger
On my 1998 Ranger, a few years back, I had the same problem. I drilled off the head of the bolt out as I recall. The plastic retainer lifted off and the battery was now able to be removed. Then I drilled downward right next to the frozen bolt on an angle into the base of the frozen bolt. I used a steel washer to back up the now elongated bolt hole in the battery pan when I put it together. Put it back together with a suitable new bolt and nut and the washer on the underside of the battery pan. Assemble it all with grease so you won't be doing this again in another 4 years.
