    Must be getting dumber with age.

     

    I can't get that thing to move down the rails after removing both bolts. How do I access the batteries after removing the bolts?

    Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 3 years ago.
    Slide the whole housing out.
    Customer: replied 3 years ago.
    as previously stated, it didn't move. there are two handle-like orifices on the bottom, you pull...no movement. it looks like it has to move an inch or so before it drops down, but I don't really know.
    Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 3 years ago.

    You may need to lift up to disengage the slides then pull out.

     

    Customer: replied 3 years ago.

    The box doesn't move. To describe it better:

     

    1. There is a 3/4'' gap between the "tray" the batteries rest upon and the framework surrounding the tray.
    2. There is a rail sloped at 35-45 degrees downward built into the frame.
    3. The "tray" has s-shaped pieces on each side that fit inside the rail.
    4. The "tray" has a 1"x1" piece that fits over the frame near the retaining bolts on top of each side.

    It looks like the piece on the front of the tray that goes over frame has to slide out 1" and it then looks like it will release down and slide out. There is no movement when I push up, pull, push, etc. It seems as if there is something else securing the tray in place, but I cannot see it.

    Which series of kodiak do you have? 4500, 5500, 6500?
    Customer: replied 3 years ago.

    4500

    Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 3 years ago.
    That's what i expected. I am not sure what to sa then. With those 2 bolts out, it should lift a bit then slide out till the stops. I searched the manuals and they all say the same.
