Axis Battery Replacement

On the chassis battery, how did you replace it? I have a Axis 25.2 and I can't seem to get to the battery in order to replace it.

Several dozen threads on chassis battery replacement on Axis/Vegas.
Most go through the board below the desk assembly; some go through the passenger wheel well. In either case it's not as easy as a car battery replacement.

Like 16ACE27 said above, the easiest way to change the chassis battery is to go down through tl need to reinstall that wooden he top of the dashboard.

Remove all the screws holding the folding desk assembly and remove it like in the attached picture. You'll see a wooden piece partially cut out of the dash. Finish cutting this piece and remove it. You'll see the battery below the cutout.

After you change the battery you'll need to reinstall that wooden piece -- tape it, or use clips and screws, or whatever will hold the panel in place.

On my previous Vegas 25.2 I did precisely what forum guru Ed suggested. I intended to reattach the severed panel with hinges, but instead went with 4 metal plates from the home improvement store. I used some stick on weatherstripping around the panel.

Be sure you access Ed Felker's excellent crowd-sourced manual for Vegas and Axis. Find it as a sticky under Tech Topics on this site.
If all else fails, read the directions!!
