Re: can't remove my battery box from 1997 dyna glide
Remove the seat , battery neg. at frame, positive at terminal, then feel around the outside of the box - there is a rear lower bolt and an upper bolt - - this will cause the battery tray to swing down when removed

Disconnect the cable attached to the negative terminal first, then remove the cable attached to the positive terminal. Undo the battery securing clamp and lift the battery out. Be careful the battery is filled with dilute sulphuric acid and can give off Hydrogen gas so avoid any naked lights. Refit in reverse order, connecting negative cable last. If you remove the battery you will loose the code of the radio.
Open the hood of your car and locate the battery. Disconnect the cable terminals from the old battery's terminals (negative/black first and then positive/red) Connect the cables to the new battery securely - positive to positive and then negative to negative. The cable ends should not be able to move at all; any looseness can prevent your car from starting.

the hood and locate the battery. Remove the cable from the negative
terminal (black cable) by turning the retaining nut on the cable clamp
counterclockwise with a socket wrench until the clamp is loose enough to
slide off the terminal. You must disconnect the battery's negative
terminal to avoid a potential electrical shock when working on any
electrical component in your KIA.
Open the trunk and pull back the carpet near the tail light assembly.
Remove the three nuts holding the lamp assembly in place and pull the lamp assembly out.
Remove the bulb assembly by rotating the bulb counterclockwise and pulling the bulb straight out of the housing.
Install the new bulb. Installation is the reverse of removal.
Reconnect the cable to the negative battery terminal.
Verify (test) the battery is good/charged. Verify good, clean cable connections (positive & negative, correct polarity). Inspect positive and negative cables for loosness (positive cable condition to starter connection - clean/tight) negative cable condition to ground connection clean/tight). Replace/repair/clean/tighten cable(s) as needed. Did you remove/disconnect any components from the engine when you replaced the battery? If so, did you remember to put/reconnect them back?
your gonna need either a 5/16 or 8mm wrench. loosen the negative battery cable (black cable) off first and move it to the side where it wont touch the battery or anything metal. then loosen and take off the positive (red) cable off and then just loosen the battery hold down bolt and the battery should left out. just like a top post battery make sure you dont touch anything metal with the wrench while loosing the bolts.
Yes you do need to remove the brace "bar" above the battery. If I am not mistaken, the fuse box also has to be relocated for clearance. One thing you must do before you start is disconnect the negative cable from the battery. The negative cable is the black one. One of the oldest rules when working on any vehicle battery is negative is disconnected first and reconnected last. Since the vehicle is "negative ground" it will make it impossible to short negative to ground. The bolts that hold the bar in place are either 13mm or 15mm. The battery is held in place with a plastic wedge that is held down with a 13mm bolt. The battery cables are 8mm.
