Default Battery Brace/Bracket Removal

Any tips on what tools to remove the two forward bolts which are hard to reach and work with? Don't have pneumatic wrench.

Default Re: Battery Brace/Bracket Removal

I believe those are 13mm if I remember right. There are four total. I used a socket with a universal-joint adapter and longer extension. While I did use an air ratchet as the driver, you could use a hand ratchet. The u-join adapter should allow you to angle the extension so you have room to turn the ratchet to some degree.

When I stated working on my first PT, I got some cheap stubby handled ratchets. I still use my good ratchets to break bolts loose when needed, but the stubby handled ratchets are better to get into tight places and give more turning radius.
