    Hello everyone,
    I'm sure the answer is staring me in the face, but I cant see it. I am attempting to replace the leisure battery on my 06 Ci Riviera. The battery is under the passenger seat and there is a plastic front and rear cover, which I have removed. The problem is that the battery is bigger than the hole to get it out of. I've tried tipping it, still cant get it out. What am I doing wrong.

    Our leisure batteries are beneath the seats. To remove them we have to take the seats out and lift the bateries upwards.

    As Brisey said, you will have to remove the seat. On my McLouis, it was just 4 bolts to allow the seat to be lifted clear. Get some assistance as the seat is quite heavy. :Smile:

    Yep on my Hymer you have to remove the seats twice as much work if you have swivels.
