So managed to kill my Hab battery by leaving the panel 12V switch in the on position for 2 weeks!!!!
Day1
Been trying to remove the passenger seat to remove the battery! Eventually got the seat off (after much swearing and cursing) the swivel mechanism. Had to leave it there as I had to go to work!
Day2
now struggling to get the swivel mech off the seat base why do they have to make it so difficult!? It looks like I’ll have to buy an impact driver to loosen the countersunk screws holding the bloody thing on!!!
Again have to leave it there due to work!

If you're going at countersunk screws, are you pulling the mechanism to bits? It shouldn't be necessary, the whole swivel mechanism should be detachable from the base where the sliding rails would normally bolt in.

Now a little one
Before going any further, there may be a much easier solution.

Take the rear plastic louvred cover off the seat base. It's removed by depressing the tabs on the top and pulling up to release the tabs at the bottom located in the seat frame.

Look at the back of the seat frame, on the floor, to see if the seat frame is located in it's fixed position by tongues slid into metal bobbins on each side. If this is the case, do the following.

Put the armrests upright and turn the seat recliner until the backrest is as far forward as possible (flat against the seat cushion).

Remove the front plastic grille, it pulls off upwards.

Locate the two bolts in the floor at the front of the seat frame and use a 18mm socket to remove.

Ensure the seat belt warning cables are clear and free (yellow plug wires).

Pull the whole seat/frame forwards until it detaches the frame from the bobbins at the rear, lift upwards until it stops moving and chock in position with a bit of wood or a hammer shaft.

This allows access to the battery box to remove the battery by sliding out of the battery box at an angle, after disconnecting the terminal clamps.

Remember to switch off the 12v hab power at the control panel before commencing any work.

Note: be careful about the battery terminals. Mine were incredibly close to the seat base frame with very pretty poor protection.

My countersunk bolts were hex heads And a couple were seized and started to tear up. so for the 2 stuck ones I dremmeled a slot in the head to get a big slotted screwdriver and sockets onto it
Once I removed them I replaced all the bolts with hi tensile torx head bolts

Gerry could you copy this to the resources area. Easily found that way. By the way much more useful than the one already there. Thank you.
Your wish is my command!
I never knew about that function👍
