Just remove the screws from the housing (I had to do it this morning). There are approximately 12 screws that can removed with a flat head screw driver, all from the same side of the housing. The housing readily opens up, but be carefull, there will be some rubber strips that start to fall out. Make sure you keep these; you will need them again for the replacement battery you install. The rubber strips act as a cushion between the battery and the housing's inner ribbing; helps to reduce rattle & vibration.
Next pull the 2 electrical leads (red and black) down and off of the battery terminals, a quick **** will work well.
Lastly, your battery is 12V 8.0Ah and retails for $100 plus shipping. Mine lasted 11.5 years, but finally died (I think). You might however, want to have your battery tested to see if it really is bad, it may be a bad charger which is only $10 - $20 to replace.
