I worked over an hour trying to remove the Prowler Battery. Maybe I should have looked at my manual or got on here & asked first...but I didn't. It was not staying charged..but showed a full charge. Indication of not enough electrolyte in battery. I first thought ..just take the top off under the seat. Didn't work. Took more crap loose. No. Unbolted whole battery box. Then I noticed on back of batter box..a door with bolt on it. I took the plastic loose infront of rear tire. It still wasn't so easy, but I got it. Sure is a sorry design to reach a battery far as I'm concerned. My friend has a Polaris Ranger & thier a piece of cake to get at battery my friend tells me. Also, after looking under the Prowler, AC should have put in mud flaps or something to keep mud & debris from getting into the bottome of skid plates. Also, what is it with all those square holes for mud & crap to get in. You know, the tubeing ends of the frame. Looks like AC should have covered them with something. There's a place that builds trailers here & I've noticed they have a lot of different size square tubing end caps & inserts. I'll be picking up enough to cover every square hole I find. I'll post pics when I get it done.

That is why I moved mine

Dumbest design I've ever seen.

And you are right about all the crap that comes in but with all the holes in the frame I'm not sure a guy wants to trap all the stuff in there. Let us know what you find.

If you do, you'll also appreciate it when you have to work on the clutches and belt.

Even Cat realized how stupid the design was. On the new XTZ's you pull the drivers seat, lift the battery lid and it's right there.

&*#@** Damn designer. I had the same problem yesterday. Followed the instructions by removing the mud guard and found the door. "Oh, I see. an allen screw no problem." WRONG I stripped that piece of ***** soft metal screw out faster than anything. I think the assembly person must have torqued in on with 10,000 pounds. I had to get the air grinder out and cut a slit in the head. I FINALLY got the damn screw out and will replace it with a real bolt that I can get a socket on. Did I mention it was 106 degrees when I was doing this? Could have been worse I guess. But really, what were they thinking by designing it that way? Were we not supposed to change the battery?

Hey Arctic Crap I mean Cat. Read this.

Rant over.
