Process:


Place the board on a riser that hangs the wheels off the table. A small box works well.





Use the 3mm Allen T-Handle to remove the 6 screws holding on the battery box. Put the 6 screws to the side.


  




Grab around the board while supporting the unattached battery box. Carefully flip it over. 








Flip over the battery box.







Use the #2 Phillips Screwdriver to remove the 6 screws that hold the lid onto the battery box.



 




There may be a light bead of silicon holding the lid to the battery box. Gently grab the motor wires near the back of the battery box and lift up to dislodge the lid. Lift the lid off of the battery box.



 



Disconnect the battery from the motor controller before working on anything inside the battery box.





 

Find the red charge port connector. Unplug the battery from the charge port.


 



Remove the rubber grommet holding the power and charge port wires to the battery box's partition wall.



 


Hold the power connection wire and carefully lift upwards away from the box to remove the battery.






 Remove the battery.


 



Take your battery and place it into the battery box with the power wire pointing towards the motor controller. You should be able to see the label on the battery. 






Place the rubber grommet into the battery box wall cutout with the slit side facing up. Direct the battery power and charger wires through the grommet.






Reconnect the battery to the motor controller.





Reconnect the red charge port connection. Notice where the notch is in the male and female sides of this connector. Make sure to interface them correctly.


Be careful not to pinch, tear, or stress the wires where they attach to the charge port. These wires can be fragile.





Put the lid back into place. Notice that the countersinks are only on one side. This side should be facing up.


Use the #2 Phillips Screwdriver to tighten the six screws that hold the lid on.

 






Flip the battery box over.


 





Grab the board so that you are supporting the unattached battery box.  Carefully flip it back over and set it back on top of the riser box used earlier. 

 






 
Use the 3mm Allen T-Handle to secure the battery box to the deck with the six battery box mount screws. Put a drop of thread lock onto the threads near the end of each screw.
