Most Harley seats bolt on the fender at the back. Remove that and they slide right off.

Where is the signal flasher located on an 03 ultra classic

On an 03 bagger it will be under the seat. You'll have to remove it. Under the seat is the battery you should see a little silver clip towards the back ledge of the battery tray. That's the turn signal module. Remove the clip and pull the unit up amd out.

I'm having trouble removing the battery from my 2004 FWDWG Dyna Wide Glide. Any suggestions?

Well. let's see if Harley has changed anything. I can tell you how the earllier Wide Glide batteries came out and we can see if Harley has changed thing drastically. I doubt it.

First, remove the seat. The bolt at the rear of the seat screws into the rear fender. Remove the bolt, raise the rear of the seat and pull it to the rear. The seat should come off. On some bikes, you may have to remove the small sissy bar by removing the two small bolts on either side of the uprights on it.

Now, you'll see the battery box on the right side of the bike. Look just rearward of it and you should see two bolt heads between the battery box and the rear wheel. The are battery tray lock bolts, loosen them but don't take them out.

Now, look just inboard of the battery into the frame. You'll see the head of a "jackbolt". Turn the screw counterclockwise and the battery tray will lower and allow you to get the top cover and the surround off. From there you can get to the cable connections at the battery post.

I hope this works for you.

Good Luck and Ride Safe.

I need to remove my seat so I can change the battery.

Look under the seat on either side. There's usually a single bolt on each side screwed upwards into the seat pan.

How do I remove the battery from 2003 Harley fxd

Remove the seat. Look on the left side of the battery box. There are two bolts there connecting the battery tray to the frame, loosen these two bolts. Look down into the inside of the frame from the top where your took the seat off just inside of where the battery sits. There's a "jack bolt" there, screw the bolt counterclockwise to lower the battery and clockwise to raise it. Once lowered you can get the top and outer chrome covers off and disconnect the battery.

good Luck
