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

Here is how to remove and replace the particular ignition switch. With that knowledge you should be able to tighten or replace loose fasteners as well.
IGNITION SWITCH for 2007 FXDWG, FXDC Models
First remove seat and then disconnect the negative battery cable and put some tape over the end or otherwise ensure it is insulated such that it could not touch any bare frame part or the battery negative terminal. Next remove the two fasteners that secure the instrument panel to the fuel tank and remove the panel noting the position and colour of the switch wire connectors and disconnect the wires. Then remove the four switch mounting screws and replace the switch. Then reconnect the switch wire connectors in their original positions and re-install the instrument panel with the two instrument panel installation screws and tighten the acorn nut to 18-24 in-lbs or(2.03-2.71 Nm). Then reconnect the battery cable and install the seat and check to ensure that the seat is firmly and properly in place.
Remove right side battery cover, disconnect negative cable and ring terminals. disconnect positive cable and ring terminals, remove rubber strap, remove battery. If you have securiy siren remove battery cable within 30 seconds of turning ignition off.
what year is your bike? on my 2005 dyna fxd, there is a small bracket adjacent to the battery box on the right side of the bike. there are two bolts in it. one screws in vertically upward. completely loosen that bolt but do not remove it. there is another bolt that screws inward horizontally. you can remove that bolt. the battery box/ tray should then pull down and angle outward to allow access to the battery. the negative cable should be the first cable removed and the last one connected.
remove the right side battery cover with the one Phillips screw below the cover, remove the hold down strap, undo the negative cable connector first and then the positive one and then remove/pull out the battery. Reverse for installation.
I've never taken the battery out a Dyna model this new but the way the earlier models worked is that the battery tray raises and lowers with a bolt. Take the seat off. On either side of the battery box, there is a locking bolt. Loosen these two bolts and there is a third bolt that raises or loweres the entire battery box. Disconnect the negative battery cable first and reconnect the negative cable last.
The Dyna battery can be removed by: 1. Remove the seat. 2. Remove negative connection at frame, and positive connection at battery. 3. Remove the lower rear bolt. (left side of battery box at frame upright) 4. Remove the upper rear bolt, and swing down the battery box. 5. Remove the top cover, nad side cover. 6. Lift battery out, and remove negative cable from battery.

Just inside the frame from the battery, there's a "jackbolt" that raises and lowers the battery tray. Turning the bolt counterclockwise lowers the battery tray and vice versa. You must loosen two bolts on the right side of the frame just behind the battery box between the battery box and the rear fender. Once the battery is lowered, you'll be able to get the top cover off and disconnect the battery cables. Disconnect the negative first when taking the battery out. Connect the negative last when installing the battery.
Your battery is normally located under your RH cover. Remove cover and it should be easily identified as a black box with 2 cables attached to it. Normally you will find 2 bolt screws holding a (+) Positive (Red) and (--) Negative (Black) terminal cables. You can use a size 10 spanner, a No. 2 Phillips screw driver or a size 10 socket drive to unbolt them, start with the Black terminal cable then the Red one. Make sure that Red terminal doesnot touch anything, yet best practise is to wrap Red cable with cloth to avoid it contacting any surface. You'll see that the battery is held up by a bracket consist of 3 bolts screws, undo bolts, remove bracket after carefully removing any wires it holds, and just tilt the battery forward and out. There that's done. If helpful please return a comment.
